Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Whited] has brought together an impressive array of scholarship to address the phenomenon that is Harry Potter. . . . From historical literary cousins to socio-political interpretations of the series' setting, from textual comparisons to fan club communities, the essays span a wide range of scholarly perspectives. . . . This is an exciting and substantial contribution to early scholarship about an important body of literary work."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books



"The Ivory Tower and Harry Potter will be indispensable to those interested in the larger literary and sociological issues raised in and around these books."--Mythprint



"A highly scholarly and insightful text, offering new perceptions on beloved favorites, The Ivory Tower and Harry Potter is a welcome addition to Literary Criticism reference collections and highly recommended for scholars and non-specialist general readers who enjoy J. K. Rowling's . . . canon of deftly written and increasingly influential fantasy."--Midwest Book Review

From the Publisher

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think this book covers some interesting topics, but for a danish girl like me, the language was a little too sophisticated. I especially enjoyed the essays on gender and language. All in all a hard but good book.
