Transcript of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Theme/Conflict
An example of irony in this book would be at the beginning of the book where the Dursley's would try to do anything to prevent Harry from knowing about Hogwarts but only make things worse.
An example of foreshadowing in this book is when Hagrid retrieves the Sorcerer's Stone at Gringotts and says "Ain't no safer place, except Hogwarts".
An example of symbolization in this book is at the end of the book where each obstacle represents each teacher. For example, the Devil's Snare represents Professor Sprout, the flying key room represents Flitwik, the chessmen were transfigured alive by McGonagall, and Snape made the logical riddle with the potions.

Harry Potter (Protagonist)
Harry Potter survives with a scar across his forehead when Voldemort killed his parents. Because Harry's parents are now dead, Harry lives with the Dursley's which try to hide the fact that Harry belongs in the world of magic. Throughout the story, Harry transforms from a clueless young boy into a loyal friend and excellent Quidditch player.
In this book, J.K Rowling describes how friendship, loyalty, intelligence, and courage work together in order to defeat the evil. This story is worth telling because it demonstrates the things listed above and their importance.
Hermione Granger (Protagonist)
Theme
Conflict
In this book, the conflict is primarily Man vs. Man because Harry tries his best to stop Voldemort from getting the Sorcerer's Stone
Hermione Granger comes to Hogwarts as a girl who studies way too much and follows school rules extremely strictly. However, as Hermione continues her school year, she begins to understand the importance of friendship over perfectionism and obedience.
Ron Weasly (Protagonist)
Coming from an extremely poor family, Ron becomes Harry's first best friend on the train and they become very close. Ron is very generous which is shown by Ron's willingness to get beaten up by the chess queen at the end of the book.
Rubeus Hagrid (Protagonist)
Hagrid is half-human and half-giant and works as groundskeeper at Hogwarts. He is very fond of animals and cares deeply for Harry. He has much more kindness and generosity than brains. However, Hagrid can be stern when Harry and his friends go "past the line".
Before the book begins, Harry's parents were murdered by Voldmort and now lives with the Dursley's (his aunt and uncle) where he is constantly being bullied. But at age 11, Harry finds out that he is a wizard and is invited to join Hogwarts. However when shopping for school supplies, Harry notices Hagrid retrieving a tiny package at the bank and says its "Hogwarts business". At Hogwarts, Harry makes two friends (Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger) and they now face a journey of adventure throughout the school year together.
Along with making friends, Harry also learns that Draco Malfoy is a bully and loves to create trouble. Malfoy challenges Harry to a wizard's duel at midnight. However when Harry and his friends meet at the appointed place, Malfoy dosen't show up. In order to hide, Harry and his friends accidentally discover a three-headed dog guarding a trap door on the third floor corridor. Ever since the discovery of the three-headed dog on the third-floor corridor, Harry and his friends discover that it is guarding the Sorcerer's Stone which belongs to Nicholas Falmel. They conclude that Snape is after the stone and is trying to steal it.
Climax
After gathering enough information about the Sorcerer's Stone and getting past Fluffy, Harry and his friends attempt to retrieve the stone before Voldemort does. However, retrieving the stone is a whole new adventure. First, Harry and his friends meet the Devil's Snare which tries to strangle them to death. Secondly, they encounter a room with flying keys, a broomstick, and a locked door. Thirdly, they walk into a royal chessboard and must play their way through to proceed. Now all that is left is a very logical riddle with three bottles of poison, two bottles of wine, one bottle to proceed, and one bottle to return to the chessboard. Fortunately, Hermione is very good at logical riddles and understands it easily.
To Harry's surprise, it wasn't Snape that was trying to steal the stone. Instead, he saw Professer Quirrell staring in front of the Mirror of Eriased. But as soon as Harry looked in the mirror, he felt the stone appear in his pocket. Professer Quirrell unwinds his turban and reveals Voldemort behind his head which trys to talk Hary into joining him. Harry refuses and Voldemort instructs Quirrell to kill Harry but as soon as Harry touches Quirrell, he'll start to burn up. However, Harry too falls over in agony.
Falling Action
Three days later, Harry wakes up in the hospital wing. Dumbledore is aside from Harry and explains that the reason Quirrell can't touch Harry was because Harry had a mark of love in his heart left by his mother.
Resolution/Denouncement
While Harry and his friends prevented Voldemort from getting the stone, Voldemort still has many other ways to come back and the rest of the adventure lies in the next book:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Albus Dumbledore (Protagonist)
Although Dumbledore is a famous wizard, he is very humble and is the Headmaster of Hogwarts. He is very understanding but is also strict about the rules. However when the time comes, Dumbledore does not overly stress them. Dumbledore is very passionate and takes the time and patience to clearly answer and explain the answer to Harry's questions.
Voldemort (Antagonist)
A great wizard gone bad. Dumbledore is currently the only known wizard Voldemort ever feared. Voldemort is currently surviving on unicorn blood which can keep him away from death, but will not give him a body. Because of this, Voldemort currently shares a body with Professor Quirrell. The reason Voldemort lost his body was because the night when Voldemort tried to murder Harry, Lilly Potter (Harry's mom) shielded Harry to protect him. Because of this, Voldemort's attack backfired on himself.
Summary
The book kicks off with Harry Potter living in the Dursley's house with his cousin, Dudley. On Harry's eleventh birthday, Harry joins a school called Hogwarts and during his school year, Harry and his two friends (Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger) discover a mysterious object called the Sorcerer's Stone. They soon also reveal that somebody is trying to steal the Sorcerer's Stone. During the end of the school year, Harry and his friends make an attempt to retrieve the stone, conquering many challenges along the way. However, Harry is surprised to find that Professer Quirrell was trying to steal the stone for Voldemort and that Harry was able to defeat Quirrell.
Professor Quirrell
Quirrell is the teacher of Defense against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts and appers to be extremely humble and nervous but instead, he is an evil man. In this book, Quirrell was very willingly to aid Voldemort and share his body with him.
Draco Malfoy
Malfoy is a selfish Slytherin bully and loves to create trouble. For example, Malfoy tried to get Harry, Hermione, and Ron in trouble when they where sneaking out at night. But ironically, McGonagall gives the four of them detention, including Malfoy.
The Dursley's
Harry was given to the Dursley's as a baby. The Dursley's have also kept all knowedge of Harry being a wizard away from him for the last 11 years. The Dursley's are considered fairly rich and have a highly spoiled son, Dudley.
