Welcome back for Week 2 of J.K.Rowling Appreciation Month here on LitCobs. Week 2 is dedicated to the Harry Potter series (Books 1-7). Today’s chosen quote is one of my all time favorite HP quotes, and even years after falling in love with it the first time, I still find it wonderful. Check out today’s links for some more HP love.
The ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban‘ Links You Need in Your Life
Go back in time with The New York Times’ original review of the book by Gregory Maguire: “Review: ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban‘.”
“Now this is good boyish thinking, putting first things first, and may be the secret to the success of the books: J. K. Rowling’s fantasies celebrate a boy’s relish in physical prowess as well as the more bookish values of moral and intellectual accomplishment.”
If you’re a lover of the film adaptations, as well, check out Bustle’s list of comparisons between the books and films by Christine Distasio: “‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ Book-to-Movie Differences Are Huge & It’s Time We Admit It.”
Any teachers and/or parents may find this paper interesting as it argues the importance of teaching HP in the classroom. It is written by Deanna Garza and published by The Alan Review: “Harry Potter and the Enchantments of Literature.”
Here’s another published paper for the lovers of scholarly publications: “The Wizarding Words of J.K.Rowling: Literary Merit in the Harry Potter Series.” This piece was published by Western Kentucky University’s TopSCHOLAR and written by Brenna Sherrill.
That’s it for today’s HP post, but be sure to come back Thursday for a new post. If you missed last week’s posts for HP & the Cursed Child, click the links below:
