Some love Harry Potter literature for its dynamic characters, others for its heinous plots, but many enjoy Harry Potter works because of its enchanting spells. Spells help characters free themselves from dangerous situations and can be used for entertainment as well. Spells we see in Harry's journey are imaginative and something to marvel at. They are capable of wreaking havoc against the innocent and providing light in a dim lit room. Although Harry Potter books have intriguing plots, their reality wouldn't be as alluring without its extraordinary magic.

In fact, Harry didn't know how to perform a single spell before going to Hogwarts. In Harry's first class, Transfiguration, he witnessed how to turn a match into a needle. Soon after, he learned the Wingardium Leviosa.
