The Houses of Harry Potter

In each of the six HP books so far, a new residence has appeared prominently. Well, technically everything in PS/SS was new, but it only featured one private residence, so it still fits the pattern.

Each house represents some person or family that influences Harry, and I think each one represents something about the book that it appears in, and something about Harry's personality... and yes, that includes the dreaded Number Four, Privet Drive. This is probably one of those pull-on-the-hip-waders sort of essays, as far as literary BS is concerned. ;)
