The first, the Elder-wand, is the most powerful wand that has ever been created, it persuaded its owners to gain power and all of them got killed.Dumbledore’s weakness is the death, he does not fear it, but he feels responsible for the deaths of his family members He had been tempted by the imagination of getting his family back to life. His shadow constrains the guilt he feels for the death of his parents and his sister. Voldemort’s megalomaniac plan to rule over the world with the Elder Wand did fail; the Hallows do not interest him; he already believes that he is immortal, but he needed a wand stronger than his last one that had failed in killing Harry. Both, Dumbledore and Voldemort tried to make themselves immortal, which brings one back to the question of the missing definition of good and evil. Harry defends Dumbledore from himself with saying: “Of course [you were better than him] [...] you never killed if you could avoid it!” Harry thinks Dumbledore is better than Voldemort; he became an archetypal father figure to him and he wants to protect him.

Therefore, we expect the good to triumph over the bad, and the princess to get her prince. The book also incorporates many elements paralleling to the story of Cinderella. However, Pratchett adds interesting twists to the book to demonstrate the notion of fallacy. This serves as the foundation of the primary theme, allowing for other aspects to be layered as the book continues. For instance, witches are generally thought of as wicked and evil, whereas fairies are honest and wholesome.

Churchill introduced the theme of witch hunting through the characters of Joan, Alice, and Ellen. The witches from the previous centuries would do harm, but Churchill's witches are the ones who are being harmed by people of their community. Through the socio-economic problems of the characters, Churchill introduced the theme of repression against women.

Heroic figures have long been the root of inspiration and fascination for humankind. A myriad of hero myths share themes and patterns that have recurred throughout time in countless narratives. In J. K. Rowling’s books about the young wizard Harry Potter, we find the same themes, motifs and structures that these hero myths are composed of. To analyse the mythical structure in Harry Potter, two influential concepts about the construction of typical hero myths will be discussed in this chapter: psychoanalyst Otto Rank’s theory of the archetypical hero’s life and mythologist Joseph Campbell’s theory of the “monomyth”: • The archetypical hero: Psychoanalyst Otto Rank analyses in his work The Myth of the Birth of the Hero (Rank, 1909) hero myths
The incorporation of the elements of “magic” and “realism” gives beauty and meaning to Midnight’s Children. Rushdie’s use of magic realism as a narrative technique is very pertinent as he portrays the postcolonial life in his novel. The Magic realism can therefore be seen as a contrivance binding Indian culture of the past to the contemporary multicultural interface. Rushdie used fantasy as a method of producing intensified images of reality. He uses this “intensified images of reality” in Midnight’s Children so as to
Arthurian Legend plays a major part of literature, and a major role in these legends is the ominous Merlin. The original legends were constantly changing to create the image we see today of not only Merlin but many of the characters in the legend. In the 21st century, many movies and TV shows portray Merlin as a powerful wizard whose sole purpose is to mentor and protect King Arthur, so he can one day rule Camelot. However, Merlin’s story is much more complex: Merlin “embodie[s] ancient Christian and pagan magical traditions, recreated for a medieval court and shaped to fit a new moral framework” (Lawrence-Mathers). The Merlin recognized today is credited to Geoffrey and many other great writers who developed Geoffrey’s initial ideas.
