I can't think of them, because it's been a while since I read the book. All I've come up with is that Harry was trying to expose Malfoy and figure out where the Horcruxes are.

    Is this a literature homework question? :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Nov 5 '13 at 16:27

    @DVK - That's EXACTLY what I thought when I read this; the phrasing is a little to high-school homeworkish... – K-H-W Nov 5 '13 at 16:50

    BTW, if you use the answer in your essay, I'd suggest honestly referencing it. Teachers can google too, AND they appreciate honesty :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Nov 5 '13 at 17:46

    Isn't that the one where Dumbledoor is conflicted with Harry when they find out that D and Voldermort are brothers at Harmione's funeral? – Stefan Nov 6 '13 at 12:27

    @DVK, but the OP has already read the book? He/She might not remember the details but they would know about what happened on the cruise ship! – Stefan Nov 6 '13 at 15:46
  • Doog vs Live
  • Harry vs Malfoy
  • Harry using HBP's book vs. Hermione's Girl Scout approach
  • Dumbledore vs Voldemort AND Harry vs Voldemort, expressed as search for Horcuxes
  • Snape vs Dumbledore over killing of Dumbledore (though we don't find that out 'til the end of DH)
  • Harry's internal conflict over dating Ginny (driven by Ron's conflict over protecting her from dating as her older brother)
  • Hermione vs Lavender over Won-Won
  • Harry's internal conflict over dating Ginny because it puts her in danger as his pressure point
  • Harry's conflict with McLaggen over the Quidditch team
  • Harry's conflict with Snape over Harry being James and Snape being, well, Snape (culminating in Harry using Sectumsempra on Malfoy and Snape killing Dumbledore)
  • Dumbledore conflict with himself over the Hallows - culminating in him fatally curse-poisoning himself (though we don't find that out till the end of DH)
  • Not quite a conflict, but internal tension in Slughorn of shame over telling Riddle about Horcruxes vs. desire to help Harry in honor of Lily's memory.
  • Also, a minor one of Phlegm vs female Weasleys :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Nov 5 '13 at 17:44
