  • Harry Potter - 540 words
    Harry Potter In the past couple years, there has been a growing phenomenon in the world of children's literature, this phenomenon is Harry Potter. J.K. Rowlings series of novels about a young wizard and his years at Hogwarts School of Wizarding and Witchcraft, has become one of the most successful children's book series of all time. Before reading any of the now four novels, one may find it hard to believe that a children's novel may be so entertaining. But once one starts reading any of the four books, it is plain to see why these books are so popular. Before first reading a Harry Potter novel, I was skeptical that a children's book about an orphan wizard going to school would be entertaini ...

  • Harry Potter And Sorcerer Stone By Rollings - 319 words
    Harry Potter And Sorcerer Stone By Rollings In the book, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer`s Stone, Written by J.K. Rollings, I believe that courage is the most outstanding theme. J.K. Rollings does a wonderful job of expressing it in this book. Al though there are many other themes I feel that courage is by far the most important. Harry shows courage when he tries to catch Nevilles rememberall that Malfoy threw, from crashing to the ground. Harry had to have courage to get on the broom for the first tome without anyone helping him. He had to have even more courage to stand up to Malfoy for throwing Nevilles the rememberall and trying to break it. Harry also needed courage to sneak out and try t ...

    Harry Potter And Sorcerer Stone By Rowling Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling is a children's novel about a young boy, Harry Potter, and his adventures at Hogwarts, a school for wizards and witches. The novel is filled with humorous tales of exciting escapades in and around the school. There are many characters in the novel, and they do not always get along well. They make fun of each other and judge each other by a certain set of standards. Some of these standards include wealth, intelligence, family and athletic ability. These are all superficial ways of judging people. Being a children's author, Rowling shows her readers other, more important ways of categorizing others ...

    ... , when he tries to fly a broomstick he ends up breaking his wrist because he can't control it. Malfoy taunts him constantly for this. Harry, on the other hand, has great skills at flying a broomstick. On his first try he has great agility and speed. Professor McGonagall describes him by saying, "The boy's a natural. I've never seen anything like it...He caught that thing in his hand after a fifty-foot dive, didn't even scratch himself." (p. 151). Harry receives much praise and many compliments for all of his great plays at Quidditch. All of these ways of judging people are not good ways to judge others.

    Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry Potter always hated the summer holidays, for he was away from his magical school; it was called Hogwarts. He hated these months out of school because he had to spend them with his least favorite people: his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and his fat, rude Cousin, Dudley.

These were usually the most boring months for Harry, because he was away from his two best friends, Ron Weasly, and Hermione Granger. One day, while Harry was in his room, he got two letters by owl post. One was from his friend Ron, and the other from his school, Hogwart ...

The most recent book being criticized by censors is J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Censors claim that the reading of such novels encourages witchcraft, and therefore should be banned.

  • When Harry Met Sally - 627 words
    When Harry Met Sally The film I chose to view for this Romantic Comedy paper was When Harry met Sally. I enjoyed this movie. The two main characters were Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally Allbright (Meg Ryan). When first introduced to these characters, Sally is driving to New York, and Harry, who is the boyfriend of Sally's friend, is catching a ride with her. Sally is a very structured person. To quote Harry, she is a high maintenance women. Harry, on the other hand, has a more laid back attitude. This causes some tension between them on the long drive to New York. This fits well into the romantic comedy genre. In a romantic comedy there is usually tension between the two charcters in the beg ...

    A Modest Proposal: A Different Version I am among the 850 people that attend Jesuit Prep. Each day at Jesuit Prep, we attend 8 grueling classes with 45 minutes of monotonous teaching about many subjects. Within each classroom, all the beady eyes of each student stare off into either space or the hanging clock on the opposite wall. As the 45 minutes tick away and the teacher rambles about a subject, the second and minute hand on the clock seem to slow down, then stop their rotational turns. While the clock appears to stop, often our heads droop down, at where we are sitting, till they reach a comfortable position upon our arms which we have placed across our desks.
