Harry Potter And Sorcerer Stone By Rollings

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 to find out who Flamel was and/or is. He could have gotten detention or even expelled for sneaking out but Harry thought that it was very important and worth the risk for him to sneak out of his room after curfew.

Harry showed the most courage when he tries to stop Quirell from stealing the sorcerers stone. He knew that by doing this he was risking detention, expulsion, and even death, but the fate of the world depended on his doing this. He had many chances to turn back but took none of them. He wouldnt even think about it. He knew that many lives depended on his saving the stone. Even though he knew he would have to fight the thing that killed his parents and tried to kill him he pressed forward until the final battle.

Out of all the themes that were shown in this book I still believe that courage is the most important and outstanding one. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer Stone is a wonderful book with many great themes. It is first of a series of seven, three of which have already been released.
