Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
The important scene I chose to pick is when Hagrid, Keeper if Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts. Evidence to provide my claim is on page 48, J.K. Rowling states that, " True, I haven't introduced myself. Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts." Hagrid was there to tell Harry Potter that he is a wizard. According to J.K. Rowling on page 50, she states that, " Ah, go boil yer heads, both of yeh," Said Hagrid. " Harry- yer a wizard." And this is all happening in a broken hut in a middle of the sea during a terrible thunderstorm at midnight, on Harry Potter's 11 Birthday. To support my claim, J.K. Rowling states on pages 43-45, she states that, " If it was Monday- and you could usually count on Dudley to know the days of the week, because of television- then tomorrow, Tuesday, was Harry's eleventh birthday..Spray from the high waves splattered the walls of the hut and a fierce wind rattled the filthy windows." It creates conflict between the Dursley's and Harry because both Mr. and Mrs. Dursley don't want Harry to go Hogwarts. It helps Harry find out the really truth about himself. Harry responds suprised because he had no idea that his parents were wizard and witch and finding out he was a wizard himself, really puzzled him. Mr. and Mrs. Dursley responded by being really surprise and angry that Hagrid told Harry he is a wizard and going to Hogwarts. This would be the rising action since this is the beginning of his experience going to Hogwarts. I expect Harry to have conflict at Hogwarts in some way or form.
