Essays on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

It is often said that all good things must come to an end, but is it ever really the end? In the seventh and final book in the world renowned Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows details the end of Harry and his close friends’ long fight against the evil Lord Voldemort.

With the death of Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape’s betrayal, the famous trio decides not to return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Instead they pursue Dumbledore’s final instructions to hunt down and destroy the remaining horcruxs created by Voldemort.

Late in the last novel Harry and Dumbledore succeeded in retrieving a locket hidden deep in a well protected cave.  It is revealed that the locket is a fake, not a horcrux at all.  The real locket is discovered at the Ministry of Magic and stolen away in a bold plan.  The intrepid trio suffers the effects of being so near such an evil object before discovering the hiding place of the Sword of Gryffindore, which is quickly employed in the destruction of the horcrux.   Their adventures lead them to break into the wizard’s bank, Gringotts.  In a daring escapade they retrieve another horcrux and escape on the back of the bank’s own guard dragon.

Through his adventures Harry learns that Voldemort seeks the Elder Wand, an unbeatable weapon and one of the three deathly hallows.  The items said to be made by Death himself consist of the wand, an invisibility cloak, and the resurrection stone.  Legend reveals that the person that owns all three is said to be able to conquer death itself.

The novel’s climactic battle at Hogwarts destroys the last two horcruxes, Ravenclaw’s Diadem and the living snake, Nagini.  Many dear friends die in the fierce battle between the students allied with the Order of the Pheonix and Voldemort’s army.  In the end Voldemort is defeated, his army disbanded and the sun rises on a new day.

Academic endeavors also come to an end, sooner or later.  For the most ambitious, this end comes in the form of a major writing assignment, a doctoral dissertation.  Even this major challenge can be made easier, with a little help.  Our talented writers and researchers stand ready to assist you with this most important of tasks.  All they need is your order.

Essays on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Many a tale has been woven around the concept of competition, from simple sports competition to cutthroat business and politics.  Yet the greatest lesson of such competition is, more often than not, that two heads are better than one.  Runners will frequently team up with one of their peers to pace themselves while running, political adversaries team up with each other to get legislation passed that both might agree are needed and students strive for high honors when it comes time for graduation.  As one might guess, such competitions in the wizard world have far greater dangers.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, fourth in J. K. Rowling’s series, two schools come to join Hogwarts in a very dangerous competition.  The Ministry of Magic makes the decision that, due to the level of danger involved in the competition, no student under the age of seventeen may compete in the competition this year to the dismay of many of the students.

When the competitors are chosen, however, the goblet ends up choosing a fourth student for the first time ever.  The goblet spits out the name of Harry Potter to the outrage of everyone who thinks that Potter somehow cheated to get his name into the competition.  Harry is forced then to compete as the law states and is required to face three dangerous obstacles via the competition.

The first part of the competition is one of amazing courage and skill; outwitting a dragon.  Harry receives forewarning about the nature of this task and recovers the egg his dragon is guarding, passing to the second challenge.  The second part of the competition the students must rescue a loved one from the black sea, a feat of endurance and compassion.  Harry, slowed by his determination to rescue both his “loved one” and that of the girls school competitor who was forced to abandon the contest, ends up arriving last at the surface, but is awarded second place for his compassion.  The third challenge is to recover the competition trophy from within a magical maze.  Cedric Diggioty, Harry’s classmate, manages to touch the trophy at the same time as Harry and both are whisked away to a distant graveyard, confronted by Lord Voldemort himself.  One of them doesn’t survive the encounter, slain by the evil Lord’s death curse.

During the course of the story, Harry and Cedric show a rather hesitant friendship, helping each other with the challenges of the competition, though both are competing.  Discuss the effects this has on each character and how it relates to the events of the book’s finale.

Students today face many great challenges, though seldom is death a haunting figure in the hallways of the university or college.  The threats to students today take the form of massive writing assignments that loom like a great Sword of Damocles over their heads, ready to cull them from the academic herd in a single blow.  Yet all is not as hopeless as it may seem.  Great knights, with mighty pens in hand, stand ready to come to your aid.  All we need is your command … um, order.

Essays on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Over the course of the previous five books, J. K. Rowling has led us through much of Harry Potter’s development.  In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Rowling begins revealing more of the human side of her characters as they begin to pair off into romantic relations, a critical juncture for any young person, and revealing more of the dark lord’s origins.

In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the story begins with Dumbledore coming to see Harry and take him back to Hogwarts stopping on the way to see a old friend of Dumbledore’s and trying to convince him to come back to Hogwarts as a teacher.  The friend, Horace refuses at first but then decides to come back.  Dumbledore then sends Harry to the Grotto where he meets up with Ron and Hermoine once more.  As they go to see Fred and George’s new store of tricks, they notice Draco leaving and going into the bad part of the wizard shopping area.

Harry is suspicious of Draco, believing him to be following in his father’s footsteps as a Death Eater, a member of Lord Voldemort’s army.  As the students return to the school, they learn that Severus Snape, head of Slitherin House, is now the teacher of the Defense Against the Dark Arts class.

During the course of the school year, Ron begins a romance with a girl named Lavender, much to Hermione’s ire.  The romance, like many youthful passions, doesn’t last long.  In the meantime, Harry finds himself falling in love with Ron’s young sister, Ginny, whom he had previously rescued from the Chamber of Secrets.

Between his classes and his duties as captain of the quidditch team, Harry continues his efforts to monitor Draco’s activities and comes to realize that Draco is using the same room Harry and other students had previously used for their secret training sessions.  Harry is called frequently to Dumbledore’s chambers where the headmaster begins teaching Harry about Lord Voldemort’s past, hoping to prepare Harry for the confrontation he knows looms on the horizon.

In the course of the series, Rowling has addressed virtually every aspect of young people growing up, albeit under extenuating circumstances.  Essays discussing the dynamics of these lessons will be challenging and most likely lengthy.  For shorter essays, focus on a single character or a single area of development, remembering to discuss how such development affects the course of the novel or novels themselves.

Though usually absent such extenuating circumstances of impending attack, every student faces development of their knowledge and personality through the course of their academic pursuits.  Just as Harry received help from the legacy notes of the “Half-Blood Prince,” students frequently seek help with their class assignments as well.  It is no shame to seek assistance of those who have come before and who possess the knowledge and talent to communicate effectively that experience.  Our professional writers come from an eclectic field of experience and training, enabling our company to fulfill virtually any writing assignment in an effective and timely manner.  All we need is your order.

Essays on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Yet again, Ms. J. K. Rowling manages to weave a fabulous story as we continue to follow the adventures of what has become one of the most famous of characters, Harry Potter.  In Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, Harry must face not only the dangers of being an enemy of the dark lord, but the more insidious dangers of well intentioned, but misguided members of the Ministry of Magic as well.

As Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix begins, Harry is sitting in a park minding his own business when his cousin Dudley comes up and begins harassing him.  Harry makes a snide comment regarding Dudley’s bullying of ten year olds.  Dudley begins to make fun of the nightmares Harry has been having since Cedric’s death (Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire).  When Harry pulls his wand out of anger, the park begins to get cold and Harry swears it’s not him doing it.  As Harry and Dudley begin to run home, Harry recognizes what is happening when they are attacked by two Dementors and Harry is forced to use magic in order to save himself and his cousin.

Harry receives a letter that he has been expelled from Hogwarts for using magic when he is under aged.  He is taken by his godfather, Sirius Black to a secret location and learns Dumbledore and others have formed a secret group to combat the dark lord, Voldemort.  The group must maintain secrecy because the Ministry of Magic is currently run by a corrupt individual who refuses to believe the dark lord has returned and has banned even the mention of the issue.

Harry is summoned to the Ministry of Magic for a hearing regarding his under aged use of magic, but instead of a simple hearing with the minister of magic, he is placed before the full department as if a criminal.  Dumbledore gets the charges dropped by proving that Harry was facing extraordinary circumstances then walks out on Harry without speaking to him.

When Harry returns to Hogwarts they learn that one of the ministry people, Dolores Umbridge, is now the teacher of the defense against the dark arts.  She begins a campaign of control and oppression within the school, even sabotaging the student’s preparations for their upcoming exams.  Hermione and Ron ask Harry to teach them new spells in order to protect them against Voldemort, as they are some of the few that believe him that the dark lord is back.  Trouble boils over when Umbridge discovers this activity, but a greater darkness looms, overshadowing even Umbridge’s reign of terror.

Rowling demonstrates many issues of importance in this novel, most notable being how misguided authority can become oppressive and leave those they are oppressing vulnerable to other threats.  Essays discussing this effect, using examples of how this climate is presented in the novel, can be developed, perhaps comparing and contrasting such developments with occurrences in our modern society.  One might also compare what Harry learns of the Order of the Phoenix with the student’s formation of Dumbledore’s Army.

Though students seldom face environments of conspiracy like Harry and his friends, they frequently form groups for studying and mutual moral support.  They also turn to experts of various fields for knowledge and assistance in completing their academic assignments.  Our company is one of those outside helpers, offering students full support writing and research services.  With our staff of dedicated professionals, students need but place their writing assignment in our care to ensure the assignment will be completed in a timely and effective manner.  Contact us today to find out how we can help with your next critical assignment.

Essays on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Third in J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Prisoner of Azkaban begins to reveal more of the history that has brought Harry Potter to where he is, preparing him for the ultimate battle to come.

In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the story begins with an incident in which Harry ends up blowing his aunt up like a hot air balloon in a fit of anger over her derogatory words about his parents.  After she floats away, Harry packs his bags and runs away.  He encounters and is brought to the “Leaky Cauldron” by a magic-realm bus called the “Knight” bus.  He finds Ron and Hermoine are also there the next morning and together they begin their trip back to Hogwart’s for their third year at the school. On the train to Hogwart’s, they end up in a cabin with a Hogwart’s teacher who pretends to be asleep.  During the ride they found out that the teacher is Professor Lupin, who is to be their new “defense against the dark arts” instructor.

During the ride to Hogwart’s, the train is stopped and searched by creatures called Dementors who are searching for an escaped convict from Azkaban, the same prison mentioned in Chamber of Secrets.  Harry ends up affected by the Dementors, passing out during the encounter and saved by the “sleeping” teacher in the cabin.  Other than himself, no one on the train is affected by the Dementors.

As they reach the school, Harry and his fellow students find out the Dementors are to be posted outside of Hogwart’s on the pretense of protecting Harry who they believe the escapee, Sirius Black, is out to kill.  As the story progresses, Harry finds out that Sirius is his godfather and mistakenly believes he betrayed them.  In response to Harry’s reaction to Dementors, Professor Lupin teaches Harry how to keep a Dementor at bay with the “Patronus” spell.

Harry later learns that Professor Lupin is a werewolf, while Sirius, who turns out to be Professor Lupin’s brother, is an Amiginous (a human-animal shape shifter).  During their encounter with Sirius, Harry learns that he, in fact, was wrongly accused.  Harry and Hermoine go back in time at Dumbledore’s request and save more than one life.

  • J.K. Rowling seems to incorporate hidden lessons in every novel she writes.  In Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry is taught fundamental lessons in family loyalty and never jumping to conclusions, no matter how significant the current “evidence” might seem.  Describe how the breadcrumbs of evidence in the novel initially lead Harry to believe Sirius is an enemy and how this could happen during criminal investigations in our own society.

As student progress in their education, they run a precarious gauntlet of what they hear in public and what they learn in school or by their own experiences.  It is an unfortunate truth that often what we are told by those around us does not reflect the true events or facts of the topic.  In preparing their written assignments, students must sift through opinions, conjectures, theories and facts in their quest to complete the assignment and obtain a good grade.  Professional writers such as ours are well familiar with this problem and stand ready to assist students with any and all academic assignments.  Contact us today with your assignment needs.  Our writers are ready at a moment’s notice.

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.

Essays on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Stories of young men and women coming of age and learning they are more than they seem abound in the world of literature.  Yet in recent years, this genre has been taken to new heights by J. K. Rowling through her Harry Potter Series.  As occasionally happens in international publishing, the story was renamed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for its release in the United States.

In the first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry starts as a pre-adolescent boy who grew up living with non magical folk, also known as “muggles,” because his parents died when he was a baby.  Harry has a scar on his right forehead that he later learns is a mark of a powerful curse that was put upon him as a baby.  The curse was cast upon him by Lord Voldemort and was intended to kill him and his parents, yet he survived.  His parents were fighting against a wizard that had gone bad, so he killed them with a curse.  Voldemort in his attempt to kill Harry found his power reflected upon himself and was seriously injured, diminishing his power as a wizard.

The community of wizards thought that Voldemort was gone completely, yet dark secrets stalked young Harry Potter.  Throughout his young life, strange things happen around him until the day his first letter from Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry arrives.  With his uncle’s aggressive persistence in keeping Harry from receiving the letters, Harry becomes increasingly determined to find out what the letters are all about, even after his uncle moves the family to a remote island in an attempt to escape the flood of letters that grows with each passing day.  It is there, on Harry’s birthday, that Hagrid, groundskeeper of Hogwart’s, finally shows up to tell Harry the truth.  He is a wizard!

Based in part on reality, the “Philosopher’s Stone” was a substance that early alchemists were convinced would turn any metal into gold.  How does the additional mythos of eternal life factor into such an environment and how does it affect the nature of the storyline?

Voldemort is described as being hungry for power and willing to kill anyone in his way.  Harry is his dichotic opposite, having no desire for power and caring for all those around him.  Discuss the manner in which Rowling builds this image and critique its effectiveness.

Hidden within the novel is an underlying message of power being safest in the hands of those who don’t want it.  Find examples of this theme and discuss how this philosophy affects the actions of Harry Potter and his friends.

In addition to being a modern classic, Rowling’s first novel also demonstrates the tensions that occur between publishers and writers.  Rowling has expressed remorse over the renaming of the U.S. release of the story, yet does not regret allowing its publication in the U.S.  In the relationship between students and their instructors, issues of this nature are not uncommon.  Our team of dedicated writers understands this and is ready to assist you with any revisions necessary to help make your paper or presentation perfect.  All we need is your order to get started.
