Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

In this second book of the Harry Potter series, J. K. Rowling continues following young Harry Potter into his second year at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Harry quickly learns that there is a massive plot underway and that Hogwart’s may not be as safe as previously assumed.

Harry Potter, a young wizard, is stuck living with his uncle and aunt once again, but this time they have given him his own room.  His uncle has guests over and tells Harry to remain in his room and make no sound as they do not wish to let anyone know that he is there.  A house elf named Dobby comes to visit Harry because he wishes to warn Harry not to return to Hogwart’s that year.  Harry refuses to say he will not return and Dobby gets Harry in trouble by dropping a cake on top of his uncle’s guest.  Harry is locked into his room, but Ron Weasley comes to free him and takes him back to the Weasley’s home.

Departing for Hogwart’s, they find the train station portal close and decide to take Mr. Weasley’s flying car instead to get there.  Soon after their arrival there is an incident where the caretaker Mr. Filch’s cat is found petrified and that begins the trouble.  It seems someone has opened the chamber of secrets, releasing a monster that resides within that years before had killed a girl in Hogwart’s.  And it seems that it is wishing to kill again.  It is said that only the heir to the Slitherin name can open the chambers and therefore Harry, Ron, and Hermoine begin a search to figure out who the heir is.
Harry begins hearing voices in the walls and begins to think perhaps he is the one causing all the trouble.  The headmaster assures him that he isn’t, but as the voices continue, Harry is increasingly determined to get to the bottom of things.

Harry finds a diary from a boy named Tom Riddle and the diary takes him into the past to the day the chamber killed someone.  Harry learns that Hagrid was expelled over the incident, accused of causing the incident with a monster spider.  Returning to the present, Harry learns that Hagrid is being sent to Azkaban prison, but even with him gone more petrified people begin to show up.  Harry and the others find the entrance to the Chamber after Ron’s sister Ginny is taken and they find out that the person opening it wasn’t a current student after all.

  • Once again, J.K. Rowling manages to hide a secret lesson within her captivating tale of Harry Potter’s adventures.  In “Secret Chamber,” the hidden lesson is a mix of Harry learning the importance of courage and self-confidence.  Give examples of how this is developed in the story and what effect each example has upon our hero.

Though seldom equipped with a magic wand, students today often encounter assignments that are no less a mystery to them than Harry’s efforts at learning where the Chamber of Secrets was hidden.  These challenges, like Harry’s, require enormous amounts of self-confidence in their completion.  Though most students are fortunate in having extensive support from their instructors, they may on occasion find themselves with an instructor that is less than helpful.  This is when the student turns to those who know how best to complete certain assignments.  From basic, creative writing to massive doctoral theses, our staff of dedicated writers stands ready to assist you with any size or type of assignment.  Contact us today to learn how we can help.
