The story events take place England, in Hogwarts school and The Department Of Ministry. King’s Cross Station is where most events took place before school. The Author J.K. Rowling conceived of the idea of this setting in 1990 while sitting on a delayed train from Manchester to London, King’s Cross. King’s Cross is mentioned in the book and the book/movie series, and is referred to as King’s Cross Station where the main characters go to board the train. The students would run through a mystical wall with their parents to the magic side to board the train on Platform 9 ¾ with their trolleys . On the platform in the station the children would say good bye to their parents and board the train to Hogwarts which was one of the settings in the …show more content…
A character in the book who showed the most bravery and potential would have to be Albus Severus Potter, who is Harry Potter’s younger son who got in the Slytherin house. Albus in the story didn’t accomplish the goals his father did in school but instead he became his own person and followed his own goals instead of his father’s and his goal was to go back in time and bring back Cedric Diggory, and he had the idea of going into the Ministry and getting the time turner which takes a lot of courage. Albus severus Potter is defined as the protagonist of the story because of his action to go back in time and save Amos Diggory’s son who was murdered by Lord Voldemort in the Triwizard Tournament in the third task. Though Albus is a very a brave and intelligent young man he was also a real social outcast due to the fact that he was the great Harry Potter’s son in slytherin and he also did not get along with his father very well. There was even times where he wished that Harry wasn’t his father, and does not really communicate much with other students at school except his best friend Scorpius Malfoy, who he loves dearly. Albus overhead something he was not suppose to overhear from the top of the steps at home. He heard Amos Diggory asking Harry and Hermione in the kitchen to use the time turner in the ministry so they can prevent his son Cedric from getting killed as the “spare” by Voldemort. Harry lied to Amos Diggory telling him that all time turners were destroyed

In the text “Lady Audley’s secret (1862)”, written by M. E. Braddon, there are many literary devices that came together to create a unique experience for the reader. The sentences in this text are purposely disconnected into eight lines. When reading a text that has sentences that are connected and flow fluently, it can be heard to determine key ideas. The text breaks up sentences so that key ideas are easily highlighted and specific words are emphasized. Within the eight lines, the author uses a unique sequence of events. The author begins the text by mentioning Talboys, and what he had done to Lady Audley. However, the author refrains from immediately saying who Talboys was in relation to her. Next the author explained,

Atticus Finch was the biggest standout when it came to the bravest in the book. Atticus was assigned the case of Tom Robinson and was forced to defend him even though he does not like criminal law. Atticus knew he was going to lose anyways, but still took the
The character in which I would compare myself to is Tessa, this being Tessa is a driven and motivated women. Tessa is always trying to find the positives in everything and always gives Harry hope, even though within the book is as portrayed as Harry’s ‘hero’ I believe in a way Harry was Tessa’s hero. An example of this is in chapter 32 when Tessa says “He’s been my hero, my tormenter at times, but mostly my hero.” Here she is finding the good within Harry and somehow brought her more happiness than she had perceived. Another example of this in chapter 40 “You always see the light in me, how is that possible when there isn’t any?” This is when Harry says this to Tessa when he is putting himself down but Tessa is trying to make him see the light.
Finally, Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird is another character that displays courage throughout the book. The first way that Atticus shows courage is by shooting Tim Johnson, the mad dog. Tim Johnson had rabies and was coming towards their neighborhood. Atticus, who hadn’t shot a gun in years, had been known for his shooting skills and was told that he had to shoot the dog, if he had missed he could have harmed someone, startled the dog, or put them in danger which is why this incident was so courageous of him. Secondly, Atticus took on Tom Robinson’s case which took lots of courage because he knew how the town of Maycomb would react and the tormenting him and his family would go through. Not only this but Atticus was determined to
Collis Potter Huntington was a man who was known for his nonstop ambition, great railroad builder and an extraordinary financier. Many people know him as part of “The Big Four” or the man who was involved in the transcontinetal railroads.

Within the story The Witch and Wizard the two main characters who are brother and sister, find out through tragic events that they both posses magical powers, but don’t know how to use them or how exactly they function. At the beginning of the story their home was raided by an anti-witch and wizard squad, and they were taken to prison. Prior to being taken away they are granted to take one belonging with them, so their parents quickly walked around the house and the mother had given Wisty (The witch/sister) a drumstick. Soon after the father gave Whit (The wizard/brother) a book with blank pages. Little did they know that the drumstick was a witch's wand but was disguised as a drumstick, and the book was actually a spell book, and a guide
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series has become one of the most popular children’s series in the world over the past decade. Through these books children and young adults alike have delved into a fantastical world in which they explored the problems that their protagonist, Harry Potter, has faced. In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the sixth book of the Harry Potter series, Harry dealt with the challenge of proving to his peers and professors that Draco Malfoy and Severus Snape were no longer trustworthy. Even so, Harry failed to realize that the author of the notes in his Advanced Potion-Making book was corrupt. In this book, J.K. Rowling uses point of view, style, and irony to demonstrate the need for people to be more analytical
The article by Michale Osteling, ‘Harry Potter and the Disenchantment of the World’, examined the controversy between the views of the conservative Christians and the Secular Mainstream, about the children’s book series, Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling. For many conservative Christians, the book is seen as a portal to the New Age, Wicca and diabolical magic. For the Secular commentary, which included liberal Christians, view the book as a make believe, so it should not concern Christians, because it is not a real occult magic. It is more of an instrumental rather than religious and parallels technology (pp6). For Osteling, the book brought a breath of fresh air, and a source of wonder to our boring modern existences (pp 4).
Authors use literary devices as tools throughout their novels, each in a variety of situations, serving various purposes. One of C.S Lewis ' notable attributes was his consistent use of religion throughout his work. Which thus begs the question: What is the literary function of religious allegory in the novel, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S Lewis?
J. K. Rowling, along with many other modern fantasy authors, owes a great deal to Dante in the formulation of her best-selling series. Though the subject matter she undertakes—a magical world of witchcraft and wizardry—would have, in Dante’s eyes, landed her in the eighth circle of the Inferno, fourth pouch, Rowling would arguably have been unable to create the magical universe of Harry Potter without immense inspiration from The Divine Comedy. In an overly simplistic picture, Voldemort might be thought of as a representation of Satan, arrogantly believing that he has the power to conquer the whole wizarding community, let alone the entire world, with his magical faculties. Indeed, similar to Satan, Voldemort exemplifies the damning qualities of greed, wrath, violence, deceit, and betrayal every step of the way on his path to power.
The British author J.K Rowling, who is responsible for fueling my imagination and creativity and providing me with an open-minded and loving community via her Harry Potter series, is one of the world’s most successful and influential writers. However, even after I’ve turned the last page of the final novel of the “Harry Potter” series, Rowling continues to be a great example of a role model, and remains being someone I will always look up to. Apart from her literary work, she has established and donated to various charitable organizations. The following paragraphs describe few of the many examples where Rowling shows how much she strives for change, especially for treatment towards women in the world and her fight against poverty.
The movie adaptation of J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a very pivotal movie in the series. Like the book, this movie is crucial in setting up an understanding for the rest of the series. Therefore it is important that the movie complements the novel as much as possible. Using one of the most essential features of a movie; visual imagery, the movie adaptation of the fourth novel is a good accompaniment for the novel. The visual imagery in this movie emphasizes emotions and reactions that we cannot possibly obtain from the book. For example, the death of Cedric Diggory at the end of the movie strikes a powerful emotional response as a result of his father, Amos Diggory’s grief. Seeing him cry makes the audience more
