Alohomora! Roundup: Chapters 4-6 of “Philosopher’s Stone”
Here’s a taste of some of the great content we received this week:
Two new articles from Alohomora! user skgai: one that claims Petunia really loved Harry in the beginning, and another that analyzes the symbolism of Hagrid as a “Man of Nature.”
Another two opinion pieces written by user Hippogriff: the first seeks to interpret the real significance of the Hogwarts motto, “Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus”, and the second wonders whether the trio’s heroic actions throughout Philosopher’s Stone are really plausible, given they were eleven-year-olds.
And finally, we received a quibble from Snapescape comparing the umbrella-wielding Hagrid to… Mary Poppins? (You have to read it to believe it!)
