Harry Potter is in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After a long boring summer he cannot wait to get back to school but a house elf named Dobby warns him not to go back because then danger will occur. Harry ignores this and goes back. Draco Malfoy is still tormenting Harry but Lockhart the new defense against the dark arts teacher and Moaning Myrtle, a ghost who haunts the girls bathroom have also joined in. These are all minor problems compared to the person who is petrifying students. Half the school is suspecting it is Harry! Can Harry find out who is turning students into stone before it is to late and someone dies? I chose to analyze the film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets because it is one of my favorite movies of all time. I figured that since I know the book and film forwards and backwards I would be able to focus on the assignment better instead of trying to learn the plot. I could focus on how the children and adults interact more then who is who. In this paper I will be analyzing how children develop throughout the film. I will be focusing on how they interact with adults, what adults think they are incapable/capable of doing and how the children control their emotions.
In this film children and adults interact differently. It depend on who the adult is, some of the adults are very understanding like Dumbledore and Hagrid while others like Snape and Mr. Dursley just want to see Harry in trouble. The Dursley’s abuse Harry,

The narrative structure of a story is extremely important because it is the reason the reader feels attracted or not towards the story. J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, narrated her story in a way that makes it easy to comprehend and maintains the reader attracted to it. Rowling included several types of events throughout the novel that makes the reader follow the story without getting lost in the middle of the story. The author introduces characters without getting the reader lost, makes the reader dislike certain characters due to their characteristics, and presents conflicts between good and evil.
The concept of death is one of great significance in Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief and in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Both works include a strong focus on death and the consequences that arise from it. While the two authors approach the same conclusions surrounding death, some of the techniques they use to go about it differ. Zusak and Rowling both personify death as a character in their respective stories. The Book Thief focuses on Death and how its personification can make it seem less frightening and more like a character with deep humanity. Death is presented as a fact of life that everyone should accept. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows does much the same but instead does so by constantly referring to death as a concept which should be understood and accepted, rather than by transforming it into a living entity. However, despite the differences, both books concentrate on the significance of death in the lives of both the characters and the readers of the story. Zusak and Rowling both transform the abstract concept of death into a being that is less abstract and, as a result, more real. In doing this, they create a connection and a sense of familiarity and acceptance between death, the characters, and the readers.
In life, one grows and changes in time, their overall personality goes through a transformation. The characters of the Novels Lord of the Flies, Fifth Business, and the Deathly Hallows the characters go through transformations based on the decisions they make, the interactions they have with the other characters of the novel and, thinking of major events that have happened in their life. Overall, characters go through transformations based on their actions, relationships, and reflection.
I have never been as comfortable with people made of flesh and bone than I have been with those made of words. Whatever information I lose in the contours of the human face, I have no trouble locating in the unchanging, permanent text of a book. There is something about literature that felt safe to me; the worlds created within far more welcoming to little girls with problems fitting in than the one outside the pages. For this reason, fiction, from Harry Potter to The Book Thief, has remained my greatest passion ever since I learned to read.
Many people believe that there is only one world that exist, but what they didn’t know is there is another world out there that seems to be out of the ordinary. A young boy named Harry Potter lives in a normal world and has no clue of what has yet to come for him. As his eleventh birthday strikes at midnight a man whose name is Hagrid, from the wizard world, reveals to Harry that he is not just human in the muggle world (a world where people were born without magic), but he is a wizard that is known as “The boy who lived” and it is time for him to start his training.

Soon after entering Hogwarts, Harry must face a road of trials which will eventually lead him to achieve his unlikely treasure. While roaming the halls after curfew, Harry receives detention in the forbidden forest, and comes face to face with the Dark Lord. Other obstacles come to place when Harry travels down the trap door into the chambers; such as devil’s snare, a human wizard’s chess game, and the room of keys (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone). The series of tests make Harry’s mission difficult; however, the knowledge he gains from the unsuccessful trials bring him closer to his main goal. These minor bumps in Harry’s journey strengthen him emotionally and physically, readying him to defeat the traitor at the end of his succession of tests. Unexpectedly, the betrayal comes from the quivering Professor Quirrell who voluntarily gives up his body to the Dark Lord. Harry sees himself in the mirror and realizes he is magically in possession of the Sorcerer’s Stone. Shortly
Interviewer: Greetings Harry Potter. I am an interviewer for ‘The Daily Prophet’ and I am intending to make this interview, the biggest news in the wizarding world!

A hero can be defined as someone who places themself at great risk, while performing acts of courage. This definition can be related in the epic poem, Beowulf, and the novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer 's Stone. In each story, both leading characters are born destined to defeat the most evil creature in their world. Beowulf is the oldest surviving epic poem in the world. “Beowulf” was written in 1000 AD, in Old English form. In this poem the main character, Beowulf, challenges an evil monster, Grendel and a dragon, to a battle to save Denmark. 1,300 years later, in 1997, the novel Harry Potter and the Sorcerer 's Stone was published. Written by JK Rowling, Harry Potter became an instant success and was read by millions of people all over the world. In this novel, the main character, Harry Potter, is sent to Hogwarts Witchcraft and Wizardry. At Hogwarts, Harry realizes that it is his destiny to kill Lord Voldemort, the most evil creature in the wizard world. Even through culture change, Harry Potter and Beowulf can be compared. They can be compared because both heroes are destined to fight evil, lead a group of people, and save the innocent lives of others.
After witnessing the murder of his classmate and the rebirth of Voldermort, Harry is sent back to live with the Dursleys at the end of the school year. When we see Harry for the first time in Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix he is once again alone, in the bushes outside(Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix pg 3). Harry has been receiving very little information from his friends about the events in the wizarding world as a result of Voldermort's return and it is not until Harry is forced to use magic to combat Dementors, the guards of the wizarding prison, that Harry goes back to the wizarding world. Harry is brought to the headquaters of the Order of the Pheonix, the group formed to fight Voldermort, while he waits for his hearing to explain why he used magic outside of school, and Harry begins his emotional isolation. He arrives at headquarters to find out that his friends have already been there for a while and have not disclosed that to him or much of any information over the summer (Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix pg 72).

Half-Blood Prince is easily one of the better books in the Harry Potter series, though each is a masterpiece. But the 6th installment of a 7-part series is bound to be full of great moments in the story. There remains a great deal unanswered in this book, however, and the 7th will surely need to be no smaller than an average encyclopedia. Somehow as I was reading this book, I felt that I was learning more and at a quicker rate than in Order of the Phoenix, but so many of Harry's problems and questions took so long to reach any sort of answer or resolution that I still ended up not knowing many of the secrets I expected to be revealed in this book. It must be that Rowling, in her grand scheme, is saving much for the last book. One thing seems
