Picking Up the Pieces:  The Mirror of Erised

You might want to start with my poem.  This post is an expansion of it.

Last semester in my Children’s Literature class, we read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.  It was really awesome.  I’d been looking forward to it since day one.

However, reading it was not without heated debate.  One of these debates was when we discussed the mirror of erised.  Some people thought it only shows a person one desire, which as you probably already know, is their deepest.  Others thought it could show multiple deep desires.
