Catherine does not speak directly to the readers except in quoted dialoguebut through her diary, she narrates important aspects of the childhood she and Heathcliff shared on the moors and the treatment they received at the hands of Joseph and Hindley. All of the voices weave together to provide a choral narrative. Initially, they speak to Lockwood, answering his inquiries, but they speak to readers, also, providing multiple views of the tangled lives of the inhabitants of Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights. Objective observations by outsiders would presumably not be tainted by having a direct involvement; unfortunately, a closer examination of these two seemingly objective narrators reveals their bias.
Analogue literature There are a number of fictional works to which Harry Potter has been repeatedly compared in the media.
Some of these Rowling has herself mentioned, others have been mentioned by Internet sites, journalists, critics or other authors. The works are listed roughly in order of creation.
He describes the climax, where Harry descends to the Chamber of Secrets to rescue Ginny Weasley as "the clearest Christian allegory of salvation history since Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
Tom Brown's Schooldays[ edit ] The Harry Potter series draws upon a long literary tradition of stories set in boarding schools. Tom Brown's Schooldays laid down a basic structure which has been widely imitated, for example in Anthony Buckeridge 's s Jennings books.
Upon arrival, the boy gains a best friend in Tom's case, East, in Harry's case, Ron Weasley who helps him adjust to the new environment. Stephen Frywho both narrates the British audio adaptations of the Harry Potter novels and has starred in a screen adaptation of Tom Brownhas commented many times about the similarities between the two books.
His pluck and his endeavour, loyalty, good nature and bravery are the things that carry him through — and that is the story of Tom Brown's Schooldays". Tolkien created a whole new mythology, which I would never claim to have done. On the other hand, I think I have better jokes.
Comic book historian Michael Mallory examined the original premise of the comic, in which teenage mutants study under Professor X to learn how to control their abilities, safe from fearful Homo sapiensand also battle less benign mutants like Magneto.
He argued, "Think about [the comic] clad in traditional British university robes and pointy hats, castles and trains, and the image that springs to mind is Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizard[ry], with Dumbledore, Voldemort and the class struggle between wizards and muggles.
Just as the creators of X-Men consciously or unconsciously tapped into the creative ether of their time for inspiration, so has the X-Men phenomenon had an effect on the books and films that has since followed.
Entertainment Weekly cited Lloyd Alexander as a possible influence on Rowling when it named her its Entertainer of the Year. The second novel, also called The Dark Is Risingfeatures a young boy named Will Stanton who discovers on his eleventh birthday that he is in fact imbued with magical power; in Will's case, that he is the last of the Old Ones, beings empowered by the Light to battle the Dark.
The books open in much the same way, with Will finding that people are telling him strange things and that animals run from him. Le Guin 's A Wizard of Earthsea Parnassus,in which a boy with unusual aptitude for magic is recognised, and sent to a special school for wizards, resembles that of Harry Potter.
Le Guin has claimed that she doesn't feel Rowling "ripped her off", but that she felt that Rowling's books were overpraised for supposed originality, and that Rowling "could have been more gracious about her predecessors.
My incredulity was at the critics who found the first book wonderfully original. She has many virtues, but originality isn't one of them. Her professors include a kindly and elderly headmistress and a bullying, raven-haired potions teacher. Even worse are reviewers who come across my books, or see the TV series, and, without taking the trouble to find out that it's now over quarter of a century since I wrote my first book, make pointed remarks about 'clever timing' — or say things like 'the Worst Witch stories are not a million miles from J K Rowling's books'.
The implications are really quite insulting! Harry Potter trains to become a wizard at his late childhood and mentored by Albus Dumbledore in facing his destiny and enemy Lord Voldemort ; whereas Luke Skywalker trains to become a Jedi at his early adulthood and is mentored by Obi-Wan Kenobi in facing his destiny and enemy Darth Vader also known as Lord Vader.
The main villains of both the franchises also share many similarities. Tom Riddle was once also a student of the hero's mentor, Dumbledore at Hogwartsalso studying to be a wizard before he turned evil and transformed into Voldemort.
Both also mentored the main villain of their stories before they turned bad and betrayed their respective mentor. Both mentors were also eventually killed when fighting their former students. In Star Wars, it is presumed and appears to be Luke Skywalker, but actually revealed to be Anakin Skywalker as proclaimed in the Jedi prophecy who would destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force.
He does this after being redeemed by his son, Luke Skywalker. The setting is a world resembling early s Britain, where magic is commonplace. Diana Wynne Jones has stated in answer to a question on her webpage: My books were written many years before the Harry Potter books Charmed Life was first published inso any similarities probably come from what she herself read as a child.But, in the novel Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte has used Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights to depict isolation and separation.
Wuthering Heights setting is wild, passionate, and strong and Thrushcross Grange and its inhabitants are calm, harshly strict, and refined and these two opposite forces struggle throughout the novel.
