Starting at the very beginning, J.K Rowling was born in Bristol, England at Chipping Sodbury General Hospital, where she was given her full name, Joanne Kathleen Rowling.

Lewis’ Narnia, but the book that topped her list was The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge (2000). Joanne attended school at “the state-run Wyedean Comprehensive School” (J.K Rowling). During her years, her favorite subject was English. In her senior year at Wyedean, she received the honor of becoming the “head girl” which was a symbolic honor more or less (2010). At a very young age it was evident Rowling had a passion for writing.

- Position on Potter How Pharr off is Mary Pharr on the significance of the novel about Harry Potter. I believe very far off. I think the argument Pharr makes is not connected to the educational benefits of Harry Potter. Rather she argues the morality presented throughout Harry Potter by saying this is what all readers crave. “In Medias Res” by Mary Pharr is a response to critics’ critical analysis of the Harry Potter (HP) series’ ability to educate readers. After thinking and reading Mary Pharr’s text about the ‘educational value’ has concluded with few, if any educational benefits through Harry Potter.... [tags: Harry Potter, J. K.

- Read any two Harry Potter books, and analyse them with reference to race theories: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix & Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows On the surface, the Harry Potter series is set in a world that is colour-blind, one where those of any foundation can ascend on account of their capacities alone. Underneath this surface, however, Harry Potter explores profound racial themes and, as the books go on, develops a complex and very stratified racial order; the books explicate the social and genetic predispositions of its characters....
