the elephant man (Hagrid)

    Pagina Catalogata come Personaggi dei libri - Soprannomi

"the elephant man" Draco referred to Hagrid by this term during his fourth year while Hagrid stayed off work, too distraught by the Daily Prophet's expose of his family situation to appear in public. The obvious reference is to Hagrid's half-giant ancestry and inherited massive physique. However, the term is also a reference to John Merrick, who acquired a lot of notoriety in Victorian England due to an extremely disfiguring condition. Merrick's personal reputation was that of an usually gentle and cultured man, one of the few with the inner strength to bear his load - though one doubts that Draco would be perceptive enough to consider that. -- MLW
