Harry Potter

...Harry James Potter (b. 31 July 1980) was a half-blood wizard, the only child and son of James Potter and Lily Potter (née Evans), and one of the most famous wizards of modern times. In what proved to be a vain attempt to circumvent a prophecy that a boy born at the end of July of 1980 could be able to defeat him, Voldemort attempted to murder him when he was a year and three months old, shortly after murdering Harry's parents as they tried to protect him. This early, unsuccessful attempt to vanquish Harry led to Voldemort's first defeat and the end of the First Wizarding War. One consequence of Lily's protection is that her orphaned son had to be raised by her only remaining blood relative, Petunia Dursley, where he was neither welcomed nor nurtured, but would stay alive, at least until he was seventeen years old. As the only known survivor of the Killing Curse up to that point, Harry was already famous before he arrived at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Early on his eleventh birthday, Harry learned that he was a wizard. He began attending Hogwarts in 1991 and was Sorted into Gryffindor house. While at school, Harry became best friends with Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, later he became the youngest Quidditch Seeker in over a century and eventually captain of his house's team, winning two Quidditch Cups.[11] He became even better known in his early years for protecting the Philosopher's Stone from Voldemort and saving Ron's sister Ginny Weasley from the......

...Harry Potter à l'école des sorciers: Résumé: Harry Potter est un garçon de qui est élevé par sa tante et son oncle qui ne l 'aime pas. Il apprend le jour de son 11ème anniversaire qu'il est un sorcier. Il va donc aller a l'école de sorcellerie de Poudlard où il va se révéler un très bon sorcier. Mais il va lui falloir plus que du courage pour affronter celui-dont-on-ne-doit-pas-prononcer-le-nom mais il pourra conter sur ses amis Ron et Hermione. Le livre: J'ai adoré!!!Le livre m'a emporter de suite et j'ai voulu tout de suite acheter le 2ème. Il vous transporte dans un monde de magie extraordinaire et vous n'avez plus envie d'en sortir. Le seul truc qui que je n'ai pas vraiment aimer dans le livre c'est les 2 premiers chapitre qui raconte surtout le pourquoi du comment mais il est indispensable car on se poserais trop de questions dans la lecture. Donc j'ai tout adorée. Je conseille ce livre pour les adulte et pour les enfants en même temps car il s'adresse a un grand publique de tout âge... Le film: Il est aussi génial!!!Par contre je regrette qu'il y ai moins d'indication que dans le film mais je pense que c'est parce que les réalisateur on un budget et qu'il ne peuvent mettre que les scènes nécessaire pour comprendre l'histoire. Néanmoins je l'ai trouver trop cool.

Harry Potter

...The Popularization of Harry Potter Series The Harry Potter series, which is written by JK Rowling, is a miracle of literary history that it is well known in countries with various cultural backgrounds all over the world. It has been translated into seventy languages and sold over four hundred million copies in two hundred countries. The success of the Harry Potter series results in a success of its industry, including films, video games, toys, traveling attractions and theme parks. The Chronicles of Narnia is another popular fantasy storybook published in 1950. But why did it fail to achieve the same incredible success as the Harry Potter series? Part of the reason is because the Harry Potter series is not only a book for children but also a book for adults. The details of the books connect to younger readers’ real lives, while being inspirational enough to generate older readers’ considerations. It is far more than just a fantasy series. Harry Potter’s magic world is so real to readers because it is very similar to readers’ lives. There are governments, schools, pubs, banks, bookstores, train stations, the World Cup, prisons and hospitals in Harry Potter’s magic world. These are all things young readers can relate to in their lives. The similarity makes Harry Potter’s magic world real to readers. Besides, by offering detailed examples to connect her characters with readers, JK.Rowling successfully convinces her readers that the magic world is real and they can be part of it......

Harry Potter

...Depuis sa sortie en 1997, la saga Harry Potter a donné lieu à de nombreuses interprétations politiques, parfois très critiques. Son auteur, J.K. Rowling, a ainsi été accusée d'avoir tenu dans ses livres des propos racistes et anti-gouvernementaux. Le catalogue de la Bibliothèque du Congrès des Etats-Unis dénombre une importante collection d'ouvrages concernant la critique et l'interprétation de la saga, et l'Insight Higher Ed, mentionne de nombreuses mémoires de maîtrise et thèses de doctorat consacrés à Harry Potter. Plusieurs cours universitaires sont également axés sur l'analyse de cette œuvre, y compris dans le domaine de la science politique. Dans son numéro sur la personnalité de l'année 2007, où Rowling s'est classée troisième après les politiques Vladimir Poutine et Al Gore, le Time Magazine met en lumière les aspects sociaux et politiques de Harry Potter. L'impact social et politique de la célèbre série de livres est comparé à celui de La case de l'oncle Tom de Harriet Beecher Stowe, roman du XIXe siècle accueillit de manière positive par le public, mais montré du doigt par les critiques qui l'accusaient d'alimenter le mouvement abolitionniste qui a à l'époque abouti à la guerre civile américaine. Suite à cette polémique quant au message politique généré ou non par Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling a décidé de réagir en expliquant : « Je voulais que Harry quitte le monde des Moldus et retrouve exactement les mêmes problèmes dans l'univers des sorciers. On y retrouve......

Harry Potter

...Religious symbolism is prevalent throughout the Harry Potter series. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban plot had a very similar to certain passages in the Bible. The betrayal and the trial of Jesus Christ mirror many characters’ own trials and unfairness that is their justice system during the course of the book. The tale of betrayal never gets old, but where do we draw the line on when history repeats itself? If we had the ability to go back in time and change it, would we want to have that ability, that life-altering decision? The Ministry of Magic seems to have ever-changing policies about the laws and regulations of the wizarding world. Harry Potter becomes agitated with Aunt Marge because she insulted his deceased parents. He inflates her to the size of a sumo wrestler; she is shot into the sky, and eventually found in a field. The Ministry gives Harry Potter no punishment and laughs it off because he is young. Corruption of the Ministry of Magic could be used as a metaphor of the High Priests during Jesus’s time. The High Priests are supposed to be men of God and are set to a higher moral code. They chose to act against Jesus because it endangered their way of life. The High Priests will do what it takes to get what/whom they want. The Ministry is motivated to protect and preserve their investors and aristocrats’ interests. That is shown in action when Lucius Malfoy throws a fit about a beast “attacking” his son. There are many falsely accused......

Harry Porter

...Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone By J.K. Rowling CHAPTER ONE The Boy Who Lived Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you’d expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn’t hold with such nonsense. Mr. Dursley was the director of a firm called Grunnings, which made drills. He was a big, beefy man with hardly any neck, although he did have a very large mustache. Mrs. Dursley was thin and blonde and had nearly twice the usual amount of neck, which came in very useful as she spent so much of her time craning over garden fences, spying on the neighbors. The Dursleys had a small son called Dudley and in their opinion there was no finer boy anywhere. The Dursleys had everything they wanted, but they also had a secret, and their greatest fear was that somebody would discover it. They didn’t think they could bear it if anyone found out about the Potters. Mrs. Potter was Mrs. Dursley’s sister, but they hadn’t met for several years; in fact, Mrs. Dursley pretended she didn’t have a sister, because her sister and her good-for-nothing husband were as unDursleyish as it was possible to be. The Dursleys shuddered to think what the neighbors would say if the Potters arrived in the street. The Dursleys knew that the Potters had a small son, too, but they had never even seen him. This boy was another good reason for keeping the Potters away;......

...but was exceedingly athletic and extremely motivated (“Harry Houdini Biography”). By the time Houdini was six, he had already developed a taste for magic and sleight of hand after seeing a traveling magician performed the Linking Rings trick. His first trick was making a dried pea appear in any one of three cups (“Harry Houdini” PBS). When Erich was nine some friends of his opened up a five-cent circus. He wore red woolen socks, and called himself "Erich, The Prince of the Air." Erich worked for a localized locksmith and able to pick almost any lock at age eleven. An autobiography by the famed French magician, Houdin, Erich was inspired and chose to follow in his footsteps business-wise. (“Timeline of Houdini's Life”). At the age of thirteen, Erich and his father moved to New York City, after a few of failures in the Midwest, and got jobs as newspaper seller. Then, when he was there he became very interested in trapeze arts and spent his time practicing (“Harry Houdini Biography” Bio.com). Erich and his father got casual jobs, while living in a boarding house, then later their family came to join them. Erich's family was often at odds with one another, having its share of conflicts, and to make matters worse his family was in poverty.

Harry Potta

...In J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone women play different types of roles, but very few are shown as truly powerful and independent. This is due to the beliefs that powerful jobs are mostly held by men, since they are considered superior to women. The way women are portrayed is often an interpretation of how they are viewed by society. If women are portrayed as being less capable than men, either intellectually or physically, it reflects how they are truly viewed in society. In the novel Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, J.K. Rowling assigns women stereotypical roles which can be seen through the positions she assigns to the female characters such as being a housewife, mother, nerd, and professor. As we read the first few chapters from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the author immediately depicts the stereotypical roles of being a housewife and a mother through Harry's aunt Mrs. Petunia Dursely and Ron Weasly's mother. Mrs. Petunia is described as being “thin and blonde and having nearly twice the usual amount of neck” (page 1). The only thing she does is take care of her son, a spoiled 11-year-old boy named Dudley, her husband, Mr. Dursley, and of the house. The author narrates how during Mrs. Petunia's spare time, she gossips and spies on the neighbors. We can clearly see that J.K. Rowling portrayed Mrs. Petunia as the stereotypical image that society has assigned to women, which is gossiping nonstop. In the novel, Harry doesn’t have a......

Harry and Twilight

...it is not world war three. It is a war that is waging between the fans of two extremely popular book series that have also made their way to the big screen and in to our homes. The fans of the Harry potter series and the fans of The Twilight Saga are feuding over which one is better. I have seen words thrown back and forth on social media sites such as facebook and twitter that you would think would belong to people arguing over some important political issue or something along those lines. Harry Potter and Twilight are two of the biggest selling franchises and should both be treated equally by the fans of either. Harry Potter is a seven book series written by author J.K. Rowling that takes place in Europe, in a magical fantasy version of today’s reality. The series targets older children and young adults, but has grown into a phenomenal fad that has fans from one to one hundred. The story follows a young boy, Harry Potter, throughout his years at a school for witchcraft and wizardry. The story line has ups and downs, twists and turns and details that bring the world of Harry Potter to life right in front of your eyes. The Twilight Saga is a four book series written by author Stephanie Meyer that takes place in Forks, Washington. This series targets a little older audience than Harry Potter does, reaching out to teenage readers and older. While the fan base for this series might not reach as young of a crowd, it definitely has no shortage of fans at all. The story line......
