It is at Bree that we see not all ill intentions come from Black Riders. Men 'from the South country' also are mysterious and dark. Here we also see Hobbits, Big People and Dwarves conversing together giving us a more 'worldly' view of Middle-earth. Tolkien introduces us the illusive race of men called Rangers who are ‘believed to have strange powers of sight and hearing, and to understand the languages of beasts and birds.'
Let us discuss the ramifications of the mysterious disappearence of Frodo and any other topic from this chapter.
