Yearning: The Chamber of Secrets (Book 2, Chapter 16)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Yearning in Chapter Sixteen of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! This week they discuss Moaning Myrtle's big reveal, Lockhart's (lack of) responsibility in crisis, and Hermione's scrunched up clue. Throughout the episode we consider the question: what does it mean to yearn, and how is this different from other forms of desire?

Thank you to Kayla for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 17, The Heir of Slytherin, through the theme of Compassion.
