Harry Potter \u26 the Law: Status, Rules, and the Enslavement of the House-Elves

By James C. Smith

Abstract

Is elfin bondage morally justified, or is it as evil as the human institution of slavery? Rowling shows Hermione as a crusader, as an abolitionist. Yet as narrator Rowling does not interject a moral judgment. The reader is left to decide whether Hermione\u27s cause has great merit, is half-cocked, or is somewhere in between
