Harry Potter and the deathly hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallowsby J.K. Rowling

SUMMARYAfter turning of age, Harry begins his final journey to defeat Voldemort. The Golden Trio goes on their quest to find and destroy the remaining horcruxes, the only way Voldemort can be killed. Soon after returning to Hogwarts (which has been corrupted, along with the Ministry of Magic, by Voldemort) Harry realizes what his final task is- to sacrifice himself so the end to Voldemort can come.

SETTINGAlthough the novel's true setting is more of a constant movement, in the end every one returns home for the final battle. Hogwarts is the one central setting in all the books. Hogwarts is the only home both Harry and Voldemort had, so it's right for the series to end with the hero and villain ending their fight there. As a follower of Rowling's series, through Harry's eyes it's the only home the readers also have.

HERMIONE GRANGERAfter meeting in the first novel Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Hermione and Harry have been friends.Thanks to her, Harry is still live and able to fight Voldemort. Hermione is a muggle-born witch. Hermione is very intelligent and brave. "And I'm hunted as much as any goblin or elf, Griphook! I'm a Mudblood!...Mudblood, and proud of it!" (489).

SEVERUS SNAPESnape seemed to have it out for Harry since he first came to Hogwarts when he was 11. Snape is killed by Voldemort at the end of the Deathly Hallows and Harry sees. Snape orders Harry to take the tears from his face and to use them. Harry finds out that Dumbledore planned for Snape to kill him and that Snape had been protecting Harry since the beginning because he had loved Lily Potter. "Expecto Patronum! From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledor watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. 'After all this time?' 'Always,'' said Snape" (687).

"ALL WAS WELL" (759).Rowling ends the long, popular series with this line. In the epilogue, titled Nineteen Years Later, it takes place on Platform 9 3/4 in King's Cross to take the Hogwarts Express. The Golden Trio is there with their significant others and children. Harry touches his scar as the train heads to Hogwarts. Harry had not felt any pain since Voldemort was killed at the Battle of Hogwarts by Harry and everyone lives in happiness. Rowling uses this line as closure for the reader and all who stayed with Harry from the beginning.

GOOD ALWAYS TRIUMPHS EVIL

KEEPING FAITH WITH THE DEADHarry must continue to trust Dumbledore's word.

SYMBOLS AND MOTIFSThe Elder Wand: The wand ensures whoever owns the wand will win every duel. To possess the wand, one must defeat the current owner. The wand symbolizes the desire for power. It also shows the false belief of power and violence will keep you safe, because the wand brings death the all owners. (ex. Dumbledore)Mastering Death: Voldemort's main ambition is to master death. The Deathly Hallows are the items one needs to become the master of death, since Death created them all. Mastering death has been a reoccuring theme in the series.
