The Tale of the Three Brothers- Hopeful moral.. "Rowling's tale ends not in neatly packaged bleakness,.., but with hope. She turns Death from an adversary who must be defeated into a friend and an equal, whom one can meet gladly." The End Work Cited Rowling, J.K. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
