From the Dursleys as social commentary to a look at Snape's role in less than child-friendly fanfiction . . . from the parallels between Azkaban and Abu Ghraib to the role of religion at Hogwarts . . . from why Dumbledore had to die to why killing Harry never should have been part of Voldemort's plan to begin with . . .

Fantasy writers talk about Harry Potter, with topics including social commentary, religion, sexism, the hero trope, and the boarding school novel. Entertaining reading with some interesting insights (and some ridiculously off-the-mark pieces which seem to specialize in Missing the Point), so basically par for the course for an anthology of this kind. The best essay in the collection is probably "Hermione Granger and the Charge of Sexism," with "Harry Potter and the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Counselor" and "The Proper Wizard's Guide to Good Manners" nicely filling the "Killjoy" and "WTF?" slots. Worth a flip-through if you like this sort of thing. ( )

My favorite story is the last one by Richard Garfinkle, "Why Killing Harry Is The Worst Outcome for Voldemort." This explains in relentless detail how Hermione might figure out a way to spring a trap and then start experimenting with What Happens when you expose old world immortality to modern hazards, such as hard vacuum or radiation exposure. Totally recommended that one to everyone who has ever enjoyed a nice revenge fantasy. ( )

This was written before "Deathly Hallows" came out, so a great deal of the essays deal with now defunct speculation over "what will happen?" Even so, it's still fun to see what people were thinking and how many of their predictions were eerily accurate. For example, one suggests that Harry must fight Voldemort alone, that Harry will not die, that Harry will die, that Neville will take a larger role, that Hermione and Ron will get together, that Snape is not as evil as "Half-Blood Prince" made him out to be.

Besides the predictions, it's also great to read analysis of a literary series to see what was done right and wrong. I learned that the Dursleys have a purpose beyond comic relief, why Snape has so many creepy fan girls, the series's roots in "English boarding school" books, and not only why Dumbledore died, but that he had to die, because he's the mentor on the hero's journey. My favorite is the last essay that details a "what would happen" scenario if Voldemort does win. Basically, Hermione goes medieval. I wouldn't have minded seeing that ending either. ( )

Only essay I was at all impressed with was the one on "fanon Snape" and fanfiction - aka how the fans (and Alan Rickman) have taken Snape in entirely new directions (though warning - the author is mostly talking about R (and higher) rated fanfiction - didn't bother me because its certainly not like actually reading something like that, and its the phenomena of fanfic in general that facinates me, but if even references to objectionable material bother you, don't read that essay)Otherwise I was very disappointed in the rest of the essays - not particularly academic - and not particularly enjoyable either. Only the Snape essay really contributed anything new or original to the academic study of Harry Potter. ( )

Questa raccolta di saggi, opera di un gruppo di scrittori di fantasy e fantascienza, riunisce tredici diverse prospettive critiche su aspetti particolari dell'"universo Harry Potter". La fortunata serie di romanzi di J.K. Rowling viene inquadrata nell’ambito del genere fantasy, affrontando sia tematiche di ordine generale riguardo la ricezione dell’opera (Harry Potter e la religione – comprese le recenti esternazioni del papa e dei Teocon americani –, Harry Potter e la politica, Harry Potter come romanzo di formazione), sia questioni più specifiche relative a singoli personaggi: Harry e la sindrome post-traumatica da stress, la questione del sessismo nei personaggi femminili, la caratterizzazione psicologica dei comprimari. Alcuni esempi: "The Dursleys as Social Commentary": i perfidi zii di Harry sono i personaggi meno realistici e più caricaturali dell’intera saga: eppure, sono usati dall’autrice come fulcro della sua satira contro il pregiudizio e l’intolleranza, che è il tema centrale dei sei romanzi. "To Sir, With Love": il fenomeno della fan fiction, cioè i racconti originali scritti dai fan, con protagonisti i personaggi della Rowling. Testimonianza di amore per il lavoro di un altro autore, talvolta però la fan fiction stravolge la psicologia dei personaggi. Perché l’odioso professor Snape [Piton] nelle mani dei fan è diventato una specie di sex symbol? "Why Dumbledore Had to Die": i libri della Rowling devono molto alla tradizione mitologica nordica, la stessa da cui partono i libri di Tolkien. In questo saggio, Harry Potter è messo a confronto con altri miti della modernità, da Superman a Guerre stellari, alla luce delle celebri teorie di Joseph Campbell sulla natura universale del mito. "From Azkaban to Abu Ghraib": la più famosa prigione magica e il famigerato carcere babbano: Harry Potter è un’amara e sfaccettata parodia che riflette sul mondo reale e sulle grandi questioni del nostro tempo. Terrorismo, corruzione e razzismo sono all’ordine del giorno anche tra i maghi. Il libro è rivolto a chi ha già letto l’intera saga, ed è prevalentemente orientato a un pubblico di lettori adulti (diciamo dai sedici anni in su). Il livello di approfondimento è tale da qualificare questo libro come una raccolta di saggi di critica letteraria, e non solo una “guida agli incantesimi e ai personaggi”, filone ormai ampiamente sfruttato. I testi qui raccolti, piuttosto, offrono spunti di riflessione non solo ai più sfegatati tra i fan, ma anche al lettore curioso che desidera approfondire alcuni aspetti della saga. Essendo uscito nel 2005, il libro analizza solo i primi sei romanzi della serie.
