Shira Wolosky is a professor of English and American Literature at the Hebrew University. She is the author of Poetry and Public Discourse in Nineteenth-Century America, Emily Dickinson: A Voice of War, Language Mysticism, The Art of Poetry, and "Nineteenth Century American Poetry" in the Cambridge History of American Literature IV, among others.
Handbooks, guides, and articles on the Harry Potter books have been produced, but there is as yet no sustained discussion of the series as a literary work. Shira Wolosky shows here that the Harry Potter books take part in a rich literary tradition, including allegorical double meanings, mirror images among characters, psychological explorations of family dynamics, political and social critique, and complex moral questions. This book draws readers into deeper meanings of Harry Potter, arguing that the books launch and pursue interpretive quests in an ongoing effort for deeper understanding.
