Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort - connections and differences
2004 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to present the similarities that link Harry Potter to his mortal enemy Lord Voldemort. Furthermore, it will demonstrate the differences that separate them. Harry Potter and Voldemort are connected through Voldemort’s attempt on Harry’s life which gave Harry his famous scar. There is also the connection between their wands; the fact that they can both talk to snakes; their similar upbringing by Muggles, along with the fact that they both are orphans, half-bloods and share a physical likeness; Harry’s blood that revive Voldemort; and finally, the prophecy. The differences are Harry’s conscious choice not to join the Dark Side, and his ability to feel love and emotions. The differences save Harry Potter from ending up like Voldemort — an evil, hated wizard who has let his ego and thirst for power take over his life.
