Today in class we're discussing repressed memories in Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, traumas that can't be hidden away and explode back out into consciousness in painful and supernatural ways (e.g., dementors). I link all of this to Freud's concept of the Unheimlich or uncanny, the frightfulness that is also familiar, the idea of the doppelgänger or double. I then turn to the book and Snape's conversation with Harry, the one where Snape reveals that James Potter could be a total ass. What line do I see? "How extraordinarily like your father you are, Potter ... The resemblance between you is uncanny."
