Prejudice is a major topic of the Harry Potter series. Lord Voldemort, the main villain, is introduced in The Sorcerer’s Stone as a wizard equivalent to Hitler, looking down on anyone who is not of a “pureblood” status. He is hostile to muggles and muggleborns because of his witch mother’s abandonment by his muggle father. The expressions "pure-blood," "half-blood," and "Muggle-born" have been coined by people to whom these distinctions matter (the upper-class purebloods) and expresses their prejudices. They treat creatures they feel inferior to themselves - the beasts, outcasts, or slaves - as second-class to human wizards.
Throughout the Harry Potter series, storylines and plots changed throughout the books, but one thing remained consistent- the personalities of the characters. Reader could always rely on Harry to save the day, Ron to be his sidekick, Mrs. Weasley to be a mother to all, and Draco Malfoy to be a bully. This is because the characters each had their own archetype, or pattern of behavior throughout the series. This was shown specifically in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The book followed Harry’s fourth year at Hogwarts.
The author narrows on analyzing how Harry Potter wizarding world deals with the contrast of black and white magic and what role gender plays in both aspects. More specifically, the author focuses on how the novels unfolds in terms of gender dynamics. To do this, the author splits the wizarding world into sections that consist of the different families, The Ministry of Magic, Hogwarts School, the Death Eaters and Hermione. The author, Delaney Bullinger, wrote this for her thesis as a requirement for her Bachelor of Arts in English in Linfield College. As opposed to other sources that only focus one aspect of the Harry Potter world, this author provides an extensive and well rounded view of gender representation in the Harry Potter world.

Quote: ‘“The boy’s seeing things from inside You-Know-Who’s snake…Obviously, Potter doesn’t realize what that means, but if You-Know-Who’s possessing him —”’ (page 491) Explanation #2: Harry and his friends figure out that Voldemort is controlling Harry. This might change things because now Harry might feel that he might hurt people he’s close to, and will try to distance himself from them. The others might try to help him, though with no outcome. Or, he might have another reason to hate Voldemort and when he meets him, he might rage on him. Also, Harry might try to hide out to Sirius, for help or safety.
The Harry Potter series have been an interesting series for me ever since I have enrolled in Professor Fox’s class. I personally have not read any of the Harry Potter series during my childhood, but once I have enrolled in Professor Fox’s class I have recently just finished Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Throughout my readings of these two books I have had many observations on certain aspects of the story that I would not have noticed when I was younger. These three aspects that I can’t imagine as a child noticing is how the Dursleys abused Harry, the stance on gender, and prejudgement based on appearance.

Once upon a time, far, far away, beyond the snowcone-capped mountains and over the seven seas of swedish candy, there was a fantastic kingdom called Castlehood. This kingdom was home to gnomes, pixies, elves, woodland creatures, and humans who were a rarity of sorts. Castlehood was like any multi-creature kingdom with a bakery that sold cupcakes, a blacksmith shop, street markets with fairy merchants, a coffee shop, a fountain of fruit punch, a castle with a queen and king, dozens upon dozens of princes and princesses, and a single knight. This knight was the most skilled warrior in all the land and could fight off a gazillion intruders, blindfolded while baking a dozen cookies with nothing but an enchanted sword and her culinary skills. She was a brave girl and went by the name of The Red Riding Knight of Castlehood, or sometimes just Red.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Adaptation of the first of J.K. Rowling's popular children's novels about Harry Potter, a boy who learns on his eleventh birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses unique magical powers of his own. He is summoned from his life as an unwanted child to become a student at Hogwarts, an English boarding school for wizards.

Steve has been charged with murder, and he’s
