Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets presentation
Transcript of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets presentation
The genre of the book “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” is Fantasy. The book is Fantasy because it includes elements that is unreal and that only exists in our imagination. It also includes a setting that is strange and some events sound impossible. Some examples of events that are impossible are: Ron Weasley and his brothers helped Harry escape from his horrible nightmare of living with the Dursleys using an enchanted car. I know this because in the novel it said: "Ron was leaning out of the back window of an old turquoise car, which was parked in midair" (Rowling 24). Underage wizards are not permitted to perform spells outside school and if any magical activity is seen by the magical community (muggles) they will be in a tremendous amount of trouble. I know this because in the the novel it says: ¨ As you know, underage wizards are not permitted to perform spells outside of school, further spell work on your part may lead to expulsion. We would ask you to remember if any magical activity that risks notice by the non-magical community (muggles) is a serious offense under section 13 of the International Confederation of Warlock's statue of secrecy¨ (Rowling 21).
- Hermes,Percy Weasley's owl is an Allusion since in Greek Mythology,Hermes was the messenger of the Gods and Hermes the owl is the messenger for the Weaslys.
- Basilisk,the serpent that Harry defeats is an Allusion since the basilisk is the legendary king of serpents.
- Harry's scar is an allusion since the lightning bolt is a symbol of Zeus, the king of the Olympian gods.
- The sorting hat is a symbolism because it places each generation of Hogwarts first year-students into one of the four houses. It decides if your primary characteristics are ambition, hard work and fair play, or intecllect through your mind. If your smart your a Ravenclaw, if your patient your a Hufflepuff and etc. I know this because the novel says: " Every year this aged old hat, patched, frayed, and dirty, sorted new students in the four Hogwart houses, (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin)"
- Gryffindor's sword is a symbolism because while Harry is in the chamber Fawkes ( Dumboldore's Phoenix) brings him the sorting hat. The hat produces a sword for Harry. Harry's ability to draw the sword from the hat proves that he is a true Gryffindor. I know this because in the book it says: " ' Only a true Gryffindor could have pulled that out of the hat, Harry,' Said Dumbledore simply" (Rowling 323).
-Tom Morvolo riddles diary is significant because it is a symbol of Voldemort's past. I know Tom Morvolo Riddle is Voldemorts past because the novel says: " He pulled Harry's wand from his pocket and began to trace it through the air,writing three shimmering words: Tom Morvolo Riddle then he waved the wand once and the letters of his name rearranged themselves: I Am Lord Voldemort" (Rowling 314).
Figurative language-departing from a literal use of words; metaphorical : gold, in the figurative language of the people, was “the tears wept by the sun.” ( Apple Dictionary)
Figurative language found in the movie:
“Dads going to kill me" is figurative language because Ron's dad is not really going to kill him because they lost the car. Ron said that to describe that he is going to be in a huge amount of trouble.
"One more word and you'll be wishing you were never born" is figurative language because Harry isn't really going to be wishing that he wasn't born. Uncle Vernon was just describing how bad he was going to treat him.
"Your family can't sink any lower" is figurative language because their family can’t sink. Lucius Malfoy was just trying to describe that the Weaslys can’t be any poorer than they are.
Figurative language found in the book:
“Madam Pince, the librarian, was thin, irritable woman who looked like an underfed vulture" is figurative language because the author was comparing a noun with another noun which is a (simile) the author was trying to describe how thin she was.
"Snape looked as though someone has just fed him a large beaker of Skele-Gro" is figurative language because it is a metaphor. The author was trying to describe how upset or mad he looked.
"His spell hit Harry so hard he felt as though he'd been hit with a saucepan" is figurative language because it is a metaphor. The author was describing how much it hurt and how Harry Potter felt.
Significant Differences between the setting and time period of the novel and film
The novel begins in the morning of Harry's birthday. The movie begins in the evening when the Masons visit and in the film Harry's birthday is the next day. I know this because the novel says:" Mr. Vernon Dursley had been woken in the early hours of the morning by a loud, hooting noise from his nephew Harry's room. The Dursleys hadn't remembered that today happened to be Harry's twelfth birthday" (Rowling 1,5). This is significant because it changes the story in the book by cutting significant parts that are included in the beginning of the book.
In the film the Weaslys get Harry out the day after the Masons visit. In the novel they saved him from living with the Dursleys three days after the Masons visit. I know this because the novel states:" Three days later the Dursleys were showing no sign of relenting and Harry couldn't see any way out of his situation. Moon light was shining through the bars on the window” (Rowling 23, 24). The part was significant because it effected the time period of the film.
In the book,Harry, Ron and Hermione are spoken to in Gildorey Lockhart's office by the teachers but in the film they are spoken to in the film they are spoken to in the corridor where the attack occurred(attach of Filch's cat) It wasn't really significant.
Comparing and Contrasting the climax of the novel and movie
The climax of the movie and novel was when Harry Potter gets sucked into Tom Riddles Diary to 50 years before. The differences in the movie was Harry enters below the Grand staircase, where Tom Riddle was standing and a younger Dumboldore appears in the Head master's office where professor Dippet was reading a letter from Tom Riddle. also, in the film they added a scene in which the dead girls body appears . The dead girl was the student, the Basilisk killed. In the book, while Harry is in the memory inside the diary and sees Tom speaking to Hagrid about Hagrids pet Aragog "being" the cause of the girls death and telling Hagrid that he was going to turn him in, even if it wasn't Aragog. During the scene of the novel, Hagrid was called "Rubeus" but in the film he was called Hagrid. Other than that the climax of the movie and the novel were the same. The climax of the movie and novel both included the same characters except professor Dipit.
How the major and minor problems resolved in the novel and film?
Difference of a significant part of the book and Film
Recommendation of the book
I would recommend the novel "Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets" because it is a wonderful book filled with magic and different creatures that are fascinating. It takes your imagination to a whole different level. the way Rowling wrote this book is so descriptive,you can imagine the setting from top to bottom.
'Voldemort is my past,present,and future"- Voldemort
"Books and cleverness there are more important things-friendship and bravery"-Hermione Granger
"It is not our abilities that show what we are.It is our choices"- Harry Potter,Ron Weasley,and Hermione Granger
"Red hair and a hand-me-down robe.You must be a Weasley"-Draco Malfoy
an expression used to call something in mind without mentioning it explicitly (Apple Dictionary)
-Fawkes (Dumboldore's phoenix) uses his tears to heal Harry while Riddle is still alive.
-Fawkes uses his tears to cure Harry after Riddle is destroyed,as such Ginny wakes up and sees the dying Harry.
-Ginny's parents go to Hogwarts because they find out that Riddle took her to the Chamber of Secrets and was sucking her strength and powers into his self.
-Harry puts his sock in Tom's diary so Lucius can throw it and Dobby would catch it after he removed the diary
They have a feast and Dumboldore announces the house with the most points
-Harry puts his sock and had Lucius give the diary with the book to Dobby
-Dobby dropped the pudding in the kitchen,causing it to explode all over Harry
-The Masons leave because of Mrs.Mason's fear of birds when an owl sent by the Ministry of Magic arrived.
-Dobby levitates the cake into the sitting room and drops it on Mrs. Mason
-The Mason's departure because Mrs.Mason gets cake dropped on her.
Comparing and Contrasting the characters in the book and film
In the film and novel Hermione Granger is a young girl that has frizzy brown hair. She is brave,bright,and curious. I know she is curious because in the novel and film she asks lots of questions such as: " ' Professor what lies bin with the Chamber itself?' 'Do you think he's alright?' 'Please,sir, don't legends always have a basis in fact?' 'Sir-what exactly do you mean by the horror within the chamber?' 'If the chamber can only be open by Slytherins true heir,no one else will be able to find it,would they?' " (Rowling 150,151,152). I know Hermione is bright because she is always the first to raise her hand. In the book and novel her response to questions are always accurate,she answers them as if she swallowed the book. When professor Sprout asked "Now who can tell me about the properties of the Mandrake?" Hermione gave all the properties of the Mandrake. I know this because in the book it says: " To nobody's surprise,Hermione's hand was the first into the air.'Mandrake, or Mandrogora, is a powerful restorative,' said Hermione,sounding as usual as though she had swallowed the textbook. 'It is used to return people who have been transfigured or cursed to their original estate' " (Rowling,91,92). I know she is courage's because she knew she will have to go through dangerous circumstances to make the polyjuice potion and never thought of giving up. I know this because in the film she said: "It will be dangerous very dangerous we will brake about 50 school rules." The difference of Hermione in the book and movie is at in the book she has buckteeth and is outgoing. She is outgoing because she comes from a muggle family and gets good grades,while the pureblood students get lower grades. I know this because in the book it says: " ' The teachers all have favorites,that Hermione Granger-' 'I would have thought you'd have be ashamed that a no wizard family beat you in every exam,' snapped Mr.Malfoy" (Rowling 52).
Harry's only family
All images are from Google.
Draco Malfoy is the son of a rich,pureblood wizard family. He is a spoiled and envious.He is in Slytherin House. Draco is Harry's arch-nemesis at school. In the book and movie he is rich,a bully,and is loyal to pure-bloods (except for Harry and the Weasleys). I know he is a bully because he called Hermione a mud blood (a nasty name for magical people born in non-magical families). I know he is rich because he bought all the Slytherin quiditch player a nimbus 2,000. Some of the things he said that makes him a bully is: " ' No one asked your opinion, you filthy little mudblood," 'Enemies of the heir beware. you'll be next, mudbloods!' " I now he bought the Slytherins brooms because in the book it says: " 'I'm the new Slytherin seeker, Wealsley,' said Malfoy, smugly. 'Everyone's just been admiring the brooms my father brought our team' "(Rowling 112).
Draco's characteristics are pretty much the same in the book and in the movie. He's just less prejudiced and envious, in the book and in the movie.
Harry potter defends his friend with everything he's got. Harry Potter is a pure-blood. He is the main character in the book series, he is embarrassed of all of the attention he receives in the Wizarding world. Harry is in Gryffindor house. I know he is embarrassed from all the attention he receives, from the way Rowling describes his feelings and the expressions on his face. I know he is a good friend because he's always defending them and looking out for them. Harry is also brave, I know he is brave because he goes inside the chamber of secrets in order to save Ginny. he also went and talked to an enormous spider having no fear while Ron was frighten. The difference of his characteristics in the book and in the movie is he is curious, smart, caring, loving and etc. in the book. He has green eyes, jet-black hair that is always messy.
Ron Wealsey is a wonderful friend, that is loving and friendly. He has long red hair, and he is a pure-blood. He is also the opposite of courageous. I know he is not courageous because in the book and film, while he is the forest he starts to ask all these questions, such as:" ' Why spiders, why couldn't it be frogs or butterflies?' ' Harry I don't like this, I don't like this at all, can we go now?' 'Can we panic now?' "(Rowling 269,270, 271). In the book Ron is tall,thin,and gangling,with freckles. He also has big hands and feet,and a long nose.
