I'm ready to talk about the book

Remorse and transformation of character

Cross-posted from my own journal.

I've been mulling HP7 over some more, specifically about remorse. I told gina_r_snape I'd like to do an essay on the subject.

Before I could get started, however, I ran across this essay, about Snape's story arc in book 7. I really urge you to read it, it's excellent. And I'm going to riff on some of what she was saying in that essay in the remarks I have that follow, so read it first.
