Rumors of Snape’s Unfairness….
Before the first potion class, Ron tells Harry that supposedly Snape threats Gryffindors unfair. True, just a rumor. But a rumor which gets confirmed again and again in the book. And no amond of reinterpreting will make Snape a perfect teacher.
I agree with marionros that Harry was a terrible student and predisposed to read any impartial, professional attempt at imposing pedagogical discipline on him as “unfair” and proof of personal bias against Harry. I don’t agree that there were NO lapses from professional decorum on Snape’s part, but much of what Harry perceives as injustice evaporates upon close examination.
I’ll address below the probable source of the “rumor” that Snape treats Gryffindors unfairly.
But first, where, exactly, is this “rumor” “confirmed”? Much less time and again?
( Honestly )
