Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 62 Days
September 19, 2010, 12:22 AM
There are now only 62 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!
"Oh, it can't be a reference to the fact that Harry's a great Seeker, that's way too obvious," she said. "There must be a secret message from Dumbledore hidden in the icing!"
- Hermione GrangerHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
, "The Will of Albus Dumbledore"
That was such great foreshadowing! Harry (sadly) never gets to play Seeker for Gryffindor again becuase of the war against Voldemort, but being a seeker becomes so important in this book. He “seeks” the Horcruxes, truth about Dumbledore, the Hallows, and a way to defeat Voldemort. When he goes to the woods to die, it says “the Snitch had been caught, the game was ended, it was time to leave the air” (that line always brings a tear). And then when he disarms Voldemort he has the “unerring skill of a seeker.” I love all the layers JK Rowling of symbolism manages to build into her writing. I cannot wait for this movie!!!
