Abstract [en]

The essay studies the way in which Rowling uses the theme of family in her first three books about Harry Potter. The essay deals with things like stepparents’, foster parents and foster children. It takes a closer look on how children who are placed in families that have children in the same age as the foster child. The essay also deals with how friends and peer pressure affect a child. The three books are compared with other literary works that have the same theme. The conclusions that are made in the essay are that Rowling uses a very ordinary, and often used, concept to create a certain feeling for the character of Harry Potter. She uses for instance the concept of friends and enemies: she portrays Harry's relatives in the same way that she portrays his enemies at school.
