The first main idea comes right from the first sentence. Harry states, “[as] young as I was, I knew it was all a lie.” This is a very important thing to keep in mind of how a boy at a young age is able to know that this is not real.

Harry Potter sighed sullenly as he plopped himself on his bed at the sixth year dorms in Gryffindor tower while thoughts about the events that transpired in the few weeks that have passed since the start of his sixth year rushed through his mind.

Racism is learned, we are not born with it. The most traditional form of this is discrimination based on one’s skin colour.
But what is racism? It is an interaction in society with a race-based worldview. The newspaper The Sunday Independent published an article Racism is a pervasive poison that takes root deep in people’s hearts defining what is racism. “Racism is a deadly disease and a mental disorder which has caused many disasters, such as the Holocaust, apartheid and many wars.” (Benoni, 2011)
Harry is a master of virtue according to everything from scripture to business ethics. The focus of harry becomes many symposia such as Nimbus and Prophecy and an expected session topic at scholarly gatherings such as The International Conference on the fantastic in the Arts and Meetings of the pop culture Association.

literary analysis: Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets I’ve read Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets, a book written by J.K. Rowling. It’s the second book in a series of 7. The book is about Harry Potter, a 12-year-old wizard going to Hogwarts. This year, people are getting stupefied without anyone knowing the reason behind it.
