He's been living there ever since Voldemort killed his mother and father. 3. Mention the most important event (or events) in the story? In the end. When Harry is in the Headmasters office of Dumbledore and discovers the reason why he could defeat Voldemort when he was a baby.
J.K. Rowling does a magnificent job using detail in this book. She took this to a level that makes the reader feel like they were experiencing the journey right beside Harry Potter. An example of this is shown when Harry is told by Hagrid that he is in fact a wizard, “A wizard, o’ course, said Hagrid, sitting back down on the sofa, which groaned and sank even lower.” The way Rowling described the sofa with such detail puts the reader in the moment, clearly being able to visualize and almost hear the sofa being sat on. Another excellent example of Rowling’s detail is when Harry meets Nearly Headless Nick, “He seized his left ear and pulled. His whole head swung off his neck and fell onto his shoulder as if it was on a hinge.” These two sentences make the book feel alive with more detail.
Due to their young age, children are more open to the existence of the supernatural. This makes them exemplary on screen heroes for films concerning magic and fantasy, as well as viewers for such films. The analysis of such films, as well as any others, cannot take away the basic joy of watching a good movie. Elements of the aforementioned topics will be examined in detail, and conclusions will be drawn thereof. Animated cartoons are an inescapable childhood experience.
But only when all these are believably portrayed are they interesting films. Fantasy films that have failed badly because of this (in my opinion) include 'Labyrinth' and 'Willow'. High profile fantasy films released in recent years include the 'Harry Potter' series and 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. Both were based on sets of books, which were first released as films at around the same time- December 2001. People are forever comparing the stories, and the two groups of fans can be impressively passionate as they argue their cases.
In the movie, Qurril touches Harry and immediately dies while turning into stone. Harry then passes out and Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts, tells Harry only a person with a clean heart could seek out and find the stone. This is why he was able to find it and not Qurril. The movie and book are similar in this

The two hero’s Harry Potter and Frodo Baggins are two very ordinary people before discovering what lay in store for them. Harry lived with his aunt and uncle in terrible conditions after his parents were murdered and Frodo lived with his uncle after his parents drowned. Harry learns of his true powers when he is twelve, he someone tells him that he was the one who killed Voldemort "To Harry Potter - the boy who lived"(Rowling).

Both types of irony will be examined in this paper and passages from the text will be cited in support of this thesis. At the moment of his birth, Oedipus received a reading from the Delphic Oracle which stated that the baby was destined to grow up to murder his father and marry his mother. Shocked, his parents (King Laios and Queen Locaste of Thebes) try to circumvent Hera's curse by turning the infant over to a loyal servant (The Theban Shepherd) to take to the top Mt. Cithaeron to be killed. After nailing his ankles together and leaving him to die of the elements, the old shepherd relents and hands the child over to a traveling shepherd from Corinth to take back to the childless King and Queen to raise as their own son.
Some are nursery rhymes, others are ballads, and still others are scary stories that make children – and some adults for that matter – quiver in fear. As a child I was brought up on the good kind of fairy tales, the ones that despite having a villain, the hero always won. The fairy tales that had musicals and happy, picturesque scenes of animation. I was brought up on Disney movies. As I grew, though, the movies became books and words, and some of them belonged to me.

It is at this point where the beginning of the end of his innocence starts. He believes that by marrying his uncle, his mother betrayed his father.
