Great Heroines in Literature ~ Hermione Granger

She’s much more then just the best friend of Harry Potter & Ron Weasley.

  • Hermione’s most prominent features include her prodigious intellect and cleverness
  • She is levelheaded, book-smart and is very good with logic
  • She is often bossy yet unfailingly dutiful and loyal to her friends
  • Hermione has an extremely compassionate side to her personality and is quick to help others (Neville Longbottom, first-years, House-Elves, fellow Muggle-borns, half-giants like Hagrid, and werewolves like Lupin)
  • Hermione’s career (as an adult) in the Ministry was to fight for the rights of the oppressed (such as House-elves or Muggle-borns)
  • Hermione has also learned to ignore what bullies (such as Malfoy) say to her, often preventing Harry and Ron from retaliating and thinking of some way to outsmart him (of which she does countless times in the books)
  • She accepts her status as a Muggle-born witch (Muggles are non-wizard), and states proudly that she is “a Mudblood and proud of it”
  • The author J.K. Rowling has stated that Hermione is a “borderline genius.”
  • She is top of her class (She received eleven O.W.L.s and ten Outstandings which are very good grades)
  • She is the best student at Hogwarts and is repeatedly the first student to master any spell or charm introduced in class
  • Hermione is an exceptional dueler, capable of outmatching even Death Eaters (as shown in the battle at the Department of Mysteries, at the Lovegoods’ house, and in the finale Battle of Hogwarts)

“We could all have been killed-or worse, expelled.” (Hermione Granger)

“Books! And cleverness! There are more important things — friendship and bravery.” (Hermione Granger quote)

“You’re the cleverest witch of your age I’ve ever met, Hermione.” (Professor Lupin)
