Both of these texts use narration to enable readers to see how each protagonist grows and matures over the course of the text. Rowling uses the technique of third person narration to show that in the beginning Harry is scared and insecure and has frequent feelings of loneliness and has a very low sense of self-worth. This is due to his upbringing and the neglectful actions of his guardians the Dursley’s. “Harry was used to spiders, because the cupboard under the stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept.” His sudden fame as a wizard at Hogwarts comes not just as a total contrast to his earlier forgotten misery, but as a fate that we feel is very much deserved after his youthful suffering. By the end of novel he is more confident in himself, his future and his abilities, he gains a significant amount of self-confidence as shown through his future interactions with his peers and in particular the Dursley’s.“...It was addressed to you by
Evil. I thought a unique scene was when Harry and Miss Cooper were singing and he’s outside and she is upstairs sitting on the rocking chair holding a shotgun. I thought that it was a sign of respect that a game of cat and mouse is about to begin.
Harry is given a gift of a new broomstick during The Prisoner of Azkaban, and has no idea who it is from. At the end of the book, it is revealed that Sirius Black had gifted it to him.

At this time also, Sirius invites Harry to live with him since he is now a free man. Harry is excited to live with his godfather. There was no way HArry could go back to the Dursley’s household. Sirius could help Harry learn more magic and truly become a father figure for

This is the first book where Harry is really shown as being a mature teenage boy. In the earlier books, Harry is still shown as an immature boy who has a hard time facing all the problems in his life. Since Harry is finally shown as being more mature, he is finally able to show in other things then just Voldemort. Harry finally admits his feelings for Ginny Weasley, and the two start dating. He is also finally able to stand up to Professor Snape, instead of submitting to him. ("HPL: Harry Potter and they Half-Blood Prince chapter by chapter.")
Convinced that he can fix what he blames his father for. Getting mad at his father for all the people who had died for his father not realizing what can happen messing with time and how he should not blame Harry for what happened. He takes his best friend with him and ends up messing up big time. Even though it seemed that saving one person wouldn’t change the future that much it does have an effect and when they go back to fix the problem it results in an even worse situation.
My first thoughts on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was that it was boring. Every new generation becomes lazier than the previous ones by the advances in technology like cellphones, air conditioning, or movies which makes life more convenient and less time consuming for them. Most teenagers would be indifferent by books or novels because most the books were already made as movies. When teens like myself are situated between reading the book or watching the movie, I would take the easier route. Another reason is that children would believe that they are too far behind to catch up on the recent books and would just rather take a day watching the two hour long movies over reading a total of 3,000- 4,000 pages of the book. In addition
Tyler Jones ½ 11/30/17 Return address Tyler Jones 2502 70th Ave SE Washington, 98040 Dear, J.K. Rowling LAL Writing After Reading your book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s stone I began to realize all the strange things that happen in life, such as a roof creaking when no one is nearby it, but you can still hear it creaking and it's weird. I am similar to harry in the sense that I can be very quiet if I want to and harry is most of the time. Harry relates to me because weird things happen to him, some weird things also happen to me such as, if I think long enough I can see a brief picture of a future and sometimes that future actually comes true and its weird and I’m like whoa! That actually happened? And when Harry was at the zoo, he removed
The Harry Potter franchise, books or movies, are classic in a variety of aspects. Whether it be from Harry first learning about Hogwarts and his connection with Tom Riddle or actually killing Riddle himself in the end. A little background of Harry himself, in general, is that he is like the Steph Curry of Wizards, a protege to say the least. His parents were killed at a young age by Voldemort and he was adopted in by Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia. They are very abusive and favorable towards their biological son in favor of Harry by an abusive margin. Harry's room was the size of a closet and he wasn't allowed anywhere to go, receive mail and was very lonely. In short terms, Harry learns of his ability, goes to Hogwarts and faces a variety of enemies and rival, Draco Malfoy. His ultimate enemy, Voldemort, is ulitmately met at the end but in his time at Hogwarts, Harry makes great friends with Hermione and Ron, eventually wedding Ron's sister, Ginny. They would go on to have three different children, all named after the more influential characters on Harry in his time at Hogwarts.
The importance of the symbolism of Harry’s scar is what keeps Harry from being possessed by Voldemort. The reason Harry has his scar is because his mother sacrificed herself so Harry could live. The scar on Harry’s forehead represents love. Love is something Voldemort cannot have or tolerate. Voldemort has no love and cannot bear to be in the presence of love. This is why Voldemort couldn’t kill Harry. So, when Voldemort possesses Harry at the end of the book, in hopes that Dumbledore will kill Harry and him, Voldemort can only stay inside Harry for so long until he finally gives up. It pains Voldemort possess someone with so much love. So, in a way, when Voldemort tried to kill Harry, he was planning his own downfall. Dumbledore thinks carefully
Harry Potter is an action filled movie about a boy who becomes a wizard and has the time of his life with his new friends and a lot of action. Some of the action can be a little funny some comedy is in with laughs and jokes. Sometimes the action can be a little scary to give watchers
When is progress defined as good or bad? The process of Industrialization, a “period of social and economic change that transforms a human group from an agrarian society into an industrial one”, is brilliantly portrayed in the 1988 experimental film Powaqqatsi, by Godfrey Reggio (Wikipedia). Reggio’s plotless film focuses on the conflict of tradition, specifically in Third World Countries, with new ways of life introduced with Industrialization. Likewise, J.K. Rowling’s bestseller Harry potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, also explores changes throughout time, specifically in the life of a young boy named “Harry Potter”. Despite their differences, both artworks portray progress, as a controversial subject which holds beneficial and negative consequences.
Next, throughout the middle portion of the book, Harry becomes more and more doubtful of himself because many people get attacked. Mr. Filch says “My cat! My cat! What’s happened to Mrs. Norris? You! He screeched. You! You’ve murdered my cat! You’ve killed here! I’ll kill you!” (Rowling 140). Immediately after Mrs. Norris is attacked, Harry is suspected of being the killer. This continues during the book. On page 196 Harry is talking to Hermione and Ron after he spoke Parseltongue, snake language, to Justin, another boy at school, when Ron says, “And now the whole school's going to think you’re his great-great-great-great-great grandson or something” (Rowling 196). Then Hermione's says, “He lived about a thousand years ago; for all we know, you could be” (Rowling 196). Harry’s friends even start to consider the fact that Harry may be responsible for so many people being petrified. The text states, “Harry lay awake for hours that night… Could he be a descendant of Salazar Slytherin? He didn’t know anything about his father’s family after all” (198). Even Harry started to doubt himself even though he knows he hasn’t done anything to anyone. All in all, during the middle of the book everyone suspects Harry of petrifying everyone and eventually Harry himself starts to ponder the question.
The book states that there were that Each major faculty member – Professors Sprout, Flitwick, McGonagall, Quirrell, and Snape – has offered a protection to the Philosopher's Stone in regard to their subject. Sprout's challenge is Devil's Snare. Flitwick enlarged hundreds of keys and charmed them so that they would fly around the room; only one fit the door to the next room and to capture it one would have to fly on a broom. McGonagall made a life-size Wizard's Chess game. Quirrell offers a troll to guard the next room. Snape made a logic riddle that incorporates seven potions, three of which are poison, two of which are nettle wine, one of which returns the drinker to the previous room, and the last of which advances the drinker to the next and final room. However, the movie, for length reasons, does not include Quirrell’s troll and Snape’s poison. Both the novel and film bring Harry to the climax where Professor Quirrell is found looking into the Mirror of Erised craving the sorcerer’s stone. Quirrell then forces Potter to give the stone to the professor. However, Harry was quick to realize that if he touched the combined Professor Quirrell and Voldemort, his body would turn to ash. While attempting to choke Harry, Harry uses his ability and gets free. In the long run, the climax of both the novel and movie are similar but there are some contrasts that are minor to the
