Harry is very brave, clever, and helpful. Although at the beginning of the story Harry judged the other contestants before he got to know them. He is sometimes a trouble maker because his curiosity gets the best of him. Towards the end of the story, he has an opportunity to win but is selfless and helps his friend.
Suspense: "There was a long pause, during which Dumbledore stared at the slip in his hands, and everyone in the room stared at Dumbledore. And then Dumbledore cleared his throat and read out - 'Harry Potter'" (271)
Voldemort is evil, power hungry, and murderous. He kills people for his own gain and doesn't feel remorse. He only wants to gain more power to be in control of the wizard society and he doesn't care what it takes to do that.
Imagery: "Cedric was lying spread-eagled on the ground beside him .... Harry stared into Cedric's face, at his open gray eyes, blank and expressionless as the windows of a deserted house, at his half-open mouth, which looked slightly surprised." (638).
The theme in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is that good friends will always be there to help out. Harry wouldn't have been able to get through all three tasks without the help from his firiends. Hagrid helped Harry find out about the dragon, Dobby helped him breathe underwater, and Hermoine and Ron helped by cheering him on.
Symbolism: "The Phoenix had fluttered to the floor, It was resting its beautiful head against Harry's injured leg, and thick, pearly tears were falling from its eyes onto the wound left by the spider. The pain vanished. The skin meanded. His leg was repaired"(629).
J.K Rowling creates a feeling of suspense by including a fourth participant when there was only supposed to be three. Everyone in the great hall becomes speechless and shocked. Evryone has questions about how this could happen. After Dumbledore said Harry's name it left the readers wondering what would happen next.
Throughout the book, Rowling describes things in great detail. One example of her using imagery was when she described Cedric's body. The word choice she used really helped the readers picture his lifeless body laying dead on the ground. Using imagery made Cedric's death even more depressing.
The Phoenix represents rebirth. His tears are magical and can heal people; Fawkes was able to heal Harry's wound. At the end of this book, the readers learn that both Harry and Voldemorts wands have a phoenix feather in them. That's why when they fought reincarnations of the dead that Voldemort murdered came back momentarily.
