Harry Potter, an English orphan, oppressed & abused by the adults around him, retreats into a fantasy world where his problems are more elemental: everyday rituals, magic spells & supercharged broomsticks with only the occasional homicidal wizard to worry about. Ironically, J.K. Rowling rescues her character through the reinvention of that apex of class privilege, the English public school, a literary conceit that problematizes Harry Potter’s status as a role model. This examination of the Harry Potter phenomenon also raises serious questions about the condition of the publishing industry, the state of bookselling & film making, & the ways in which the Potter consumer campaign has changed our ideas about literature & reading.
