Another Harry Potter Connection

While reading about Cerberus in Canto VI, I was reminded of Fluffy, the three headed dog in "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone."

Besides being similar in looks, these two characters also have similar roles. From watching one of the Harry Potter movies, I remember that Fluffy guarded the entrance to the place where the Sorceror's stone was kept. Cerberus also guards something, the Gluttons in Dante's Inferno.

haha Julia, I love how you find all of these Harry Potter connections! But as I mentioned in class today, I seem to remember there being trees that wine or talk or something in Harry Potter....maybe like the weeping willows? I think that was it, but it made me think of the trees that talk in the suicide woods.
