In Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Hermione reads the story about the three brothers. At some point the following is said about the second brother:
"Drunk with the power that the elder wand had given him, he bragged of his invincibility."
My question is: what is the meaning of "drunk with the power..." ?
Does it mean he was literally drunk, and died while being so (easy target while drunk).
Or, was he technically sober, but metaphorically drunk, thinking he is invincible, therefore causing him to draw attention? I would imagine that if someone brags he is invincible, there would be challengers of some kind to prove him wrong, therefore killing him.
(I am not a native English speaker, so it sounded quite ambiguous to me.)
