Maxime of 50 Points up for grabs!!!!!
Part One – Professor Trewlawney.
For the very first part of this homework you will need to look at the following quotes very carefully.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Chapter: Talons and Tea Leaves (page 80 UK Ed)
Quote: to Parvati Patil – “beware a red-haired man”
To the class “around Easter, one of our number will leave us forever”
Harry on Ron’s tea cup – “You’re going to suffer but be very happy”
Ron on Harry’s tea cup - “A windfall, unexpected gold.”
Trewlaney on Harry’s tea leaves – “The Falcon…..my dear you have a deadly enemy.”
“The club……..an attack”
“The skull….danger in your path.”
“And finally the Grim “Death.””
Q1.) Many of the thing which Trewlaney “sees” are future set, looking at the path of GoF, OotP and HBP, tell me how much of Trewlaney’s predictions and Ron and Harry’s were right your own personal opinion on these predictions and how important are they. Min of 300 words max of 700.
Now look carefully at the following quote taken from Goblet of Fire: chapter: The Dream and keep in mind the events which unfold in books 4, 5 and 6.
Trewlawney to Harry – “My dear you were undoubtedly stimulated by the extraordinary clairvoyant vibrations of my room! If you leave now, you ay lose the opportunity to see further than you ever have – “
Q2) examine this quote carefully and in no less than 100 tell me what it reveals.
In the Half Blood Prince Trewlaney saw the following:-
Chapter 10: The House of Gaunt (page 185 UK Ed)
“Two of Spades: conflict, Seven of Spades: an ill omen, Ten of Spades: violence, Knave of Spades: a dark young man possibly troubled, one who dislikes the questioner – “
The Seer overheard (page 507 UK Ed)
“If Dumbledore chooses to ignore the warnings the cards show – “
“ – the lightning-stuck tower. Calamity, Disaster. Coming nearer all the time…..”
In that same chapter Trewlaney inadvertently revealed that it was Snape that overheard the prophecy.
Q3) Could Trelawney’s words have saved Dumbledore from death? Or did he choose to ignore her predictions, her clear distress, in order to allow the events of that fateful night to take place?
Min of 100 to a Max of 300 words, explaining your views on these quotes.
Last year we touched upon Prophecies now I want you to examine as close as you can, everything which has ever been said by Trewlawney, or people in her class, no matter how “unimportant” you think it is.
For example, when Trewlawney joined the trio and the select few who had remained at Hogwarts over Christmas in Prisoner of Azkaban, she refused to sit down at the table, to dine with 13 is unlucky, the first person to stand up would surely die.
Then in Order of the Phoenix, Sirius rose from a table of 13 first and we all know what happened to him.
Sooo, explore, surprise yourselves and show me anything which makes you believe something will happen in the final book which has been “forewarned” by Trewlawney
p.s. Just a little clue, you won’t need to study Philosopher’s Stone or Chamber of Secrets …. Although you probably knew that EDIT: This class is now worth 70 possible points!
