There are many hero books in the world of reading such as t The l Lord of the r Rings and in  almost every Disney fairytale which we can easily identify with the hero archetype. But a question to be answered is does Harry Potter fit the archetype hero?

In chapter one, Harry is dropped off at a Privet drive. As 10 years go by Harry is now 11 years old and Harry lives with his Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley. Harry lives underneath the stairs in a cupboard and Harry is to be sent to stonewall high in the upcoming school year. One day a mysterious letter shows up in the mail and it’s addressed specifically to him with the exact address down to where he stays. When Uncle Vernon sees said letter he takes it out of Harry’s grasp before he can read it.  This made Harry grow angry that he couldn’t read the said letter but Vernon wouldn’t let up. The next few days became a catastrophe as the letters kept coming. They would come even when the mail didn’t run. Vernon became fed up with the letters so he decided to plan a trip, they set out to a shack in the middle of the ocean where no one would find them. 

This plan backfired as a big burly man named Hagrid burst through the door demanding he sees sseesHarry. When Harry finally meets Hagrid, he begins to tell Harry about Hogwarts and his parents. He talks to the place they’ll have to go to tomorrow called Diagon alley. The next day Hagrid takes Harry to Diagon Alley to pick up his school supplies for the school year at Hogwarts. Hagrid also hands Harry his ticket to the Hogwarts express.

When Harry arrived at Kings Cross Station he Harry was confused about the platform on the ticket he had received. The ticket read platform number 9 ¾ he was worriedly looking around the train station until he ran into a woman with bright red hair. The woman introduced herself as Molly Weasley and she proceeds to help him onto the platform by telling him he needs to run through the wall between platforms 9 and 10.  Harry successfully makes it onto the platform and onto the Hogwarts express. When Harry sits down on the train he meets one of Molly's sons named Ron and a girl with bushy hair named Hermione.

 When Harry makes it to Hogwarts he is put into the great hall with all of the other first-year students. The students are sorted into houses by a sorting hat. This hat will determine what house you're in based on who you are as a person.  After Harry was sorted into Gryffindor a few weeks later Harry realizes that he has never met someone he doesn’t like as much as Dudley until he met Draco. Harry has also become closer to Ron and Hermione.

As the weeks pass Hermione, Ron, and Harry soo learn about the sorcerer’s stone and they learn a 3 headed dog guards the stone. But the question arises who wants the stone and why are they trying to kill h Harry. Harry, Ron, and Hermione soon discover find out these answers as a series of events lead them to one person in particular.  When Harry, Ron, and Hermione enter the trapdoor they come face to face with a three-headed dog. t They have learned to put the said dog to sleep by playing a magical harp. When they pass the three-headed dog they open the trap door and jump down into the devil's snare. The devil's snare has a tight hold on the trio as Hermione comes up with the spell to kill the devil’s snare. After the devil’s snare they find themselves in a hall full of 100 keys to open 1 door, Harry soon notices there are broomsticks and they use the broomsticks to get the magical key to open the next door. When the next door is opened they are faced with a giant chessboard. The group soon realizes that they have to play to move on. Ron sacrifices himself for Hermione and Harry to move on. When they move through the next door they are met with a table of potions. Hermione figures out the potion that will get him to the chamber where the stone is. There is only enough potion for one so Harry tells Hermione to go get Ron and to leave to get Dumbledore.  

After Harry U uses the potion to get to the chamber where the sorcerer’s stone is, he enters only to be faced with one person he didn’t expect to see. It wasn’t Professor Snape but Professor Quirrell. Harry learned that professor Quirrell was after the stone to gain power for his master Voldemort and he wanted to kill Harry once and for all.  Harry comes up with a plan to try to make sure the stone doesn’t end up in the wrong hands. Quirrell and Harry fight and he burns Quirrell with the sorcerer's stone, shortly after that Harry passes out. When Harry wakes up he is woken up to Dumbeldore at his bedside telling him it’s time for dinner. Harry goes down to the great hall where everyone is. 

Dumbledore awards Harry, Ron, A and Hermione house points for their bravery,willingness willigness, and courageousness in retrieving the sorcerer’s stone.  The next day students are packing their belongings and heading to the Hogwarts Express. Harry, Ron, and Hermione sit on the train to Kings Cross station. When they step off of the train out of the platform Harry sees his A aunt, U uncle, and C cousin. Ron tells Harry and Hermione that he will write letters to them. Harry finds new freedom to torment his cousin during the summer as he has a newfound skill for doing magic.
