ENGB35 – Lecture 21 – Continuation of Harry Potter and Intro to Hunger
Games
Continuation of Harry Potter
What is Hermione’s role in the group? How is her relationship with the boys set
up, and how is their friendship cemented?
How is her bookishness presented?
o“Like every Hollywood damsel in distress, Hermione depends on the
resourcefulness of boys and repays them with her complicity. By lying
to cover up for them, she earns the boys’ reluctant appreciation”
(Schoefer)
o“Harry – you’re a great wizard, you know’ I’m not as good as you, said
Harry… “Me!” said Hermione. ‘Books! And cleverness! There are more
important things – friendship and bravery”
How is the Muggle used in the book?
Can be neutral or an insult
Hagrid uses it as an insult
“It’s you bad luck you grow up in a family o’ the biggest Muggles I ever laid
eyes on”
oMuggles – dirty
Muggles comes from the word “mug”
Hagrid and Malfoy:
“ Heard he’ s a sort of savage – lives in a hut in the school grounds and every
now and then he gets drunk, tries to do magic and ends up setting fire to his
bed”
Hagrid is a generally kind person, in contrast Malfoy – only cares about the
class status
Similar to Golden Compass, the child protagonists’ changes their positions,
for example Lyra becomes friends with the servant/gypsy children and Harry
does the same
The Houses:
