I never really thought of it that way!
This was extremely interesting--I really like it! So I started thinking about it, and I came up with two more pieces that you may find interest to:
On water: I'm sure you know something of marine life, so think of school fish and dolphins. Both species live in communities, yes? So the water could be symbolic for Lily and Petunia's relationship. That is to say, while the water may present community, the harsh rain could be symbolic for the leading-up-to the Evans' eventual downfall.
On fire: Fire is also symbolic for "judgement," so it could imply that the Dursleys were being judged at that time.
I think by the time we get to reading about the shack on the rock, we already have an excellent idea of what the Dursleys are like, so I don't think that the shack on the rock is a metaphor for their attitudes and behaviour. I just think that the Vernon wanted to take them to where he thought that they would not be found by the owls.
Your same logic could apply to a number of other place - abandoned mines, caves, or huts in the woods... their very location and general lack of use would also give them the same characteristics as the shack on the rock (cold, decrepit, exposed to the elements etc).
I do however like how you've thought about this and provided good rationale for your thoughts!
Author's Response: Why thank you. It's also true, what you say. I do think that we already get an understanding of the Dursleys' by the time they hit the Shack I just thought it was interesting, how she described the situation. It being cold, dank and rainy. And here are these Muggles in misery because of the wizard they're trying to suppress. Then the next day, Hagrid comes and makes it seems warmer, brighter, and happier. Though, I believe it was still rainy when he arrives.
Love it :D It makes so much sense, wonderfully written, that is all I can say~
We could also further extend the metaphor of the house being the broken relationship of Lily and Petunia by using Hagrid as a symbol for what Lily is. Hagrid knocks the door down and nearly destroys the house when he comes in. What might have already been a rotten relationship between sisters, may have gotten worse when magic (Hagrid) came crashing through the doors.
Author's Response: I like that. I didn't think of it that way. After I wrote this essay I thought about comparing Hagrid to the Dursleys. When he comes, not only does he light a bright and warm fire, that warmth "hugged" Harry. So I guess one could write an essay comparing the two scenes.
Petunia certainly had descended into self-induced ignorance of the wizarding world if she let Vernon believe he could outrun magic.
We've talked a lot about where the curse of unicorn blood comes from, but just what exactly is the curse?! That's what this Quibble seeks to find out!
I'm back with more of my thoughts and questions that I had while re-reading the Harry Potter books. This time from Chapters 1 & 2 of Chamber of Secrets.
I pair up characters with magical creatures that are like them.
In which I try to explain my views on prejudice in the Wizarding world, and connect it to certain areas of the muggle world as well. The category is Fantastic Beats and Where to...
This is an essay I wrote for school comparing and contrasting the lives of Harry and Voldemort. It starts with their childhoods and continues until the end of the books.
