Erica Fudge defines the Animal Paradox as the idea that in practically every instance of interaction between humans and animals, there is some form of a paradox. We view animals as both like, and not like us. We both love, and hate them. This essay explores how the Animal Paradox is represented within Harry Potter, with a particular focus on lycanthropy and animagi.
