What was symbolic about voldemorts death in the book?
Because when I read his book death, it’s like it all comes full circle for Voldemort. In “The Flaw in the Plan”, when Harry and he are having their exchange in the Great Hall, Jo refers to him as “Voldemort”, but once he’s dead, once it’s all over, it’s Tom Riddle’s body that hits the floor with a mundane finality. It’s like she was saying that, in the end, despite all of his efforts to prove how special and above everyone he was, he died as nothing more than a man. He didn’t go out in a cloud of smoke and dust, like you’d imagine a great being would. Because he was powerful, but he wasn’t great. Voldemort would hate the way he died.
