Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. A Wizard of Their Age began when the students in Cecilia Konchar Farr s Six Degrees of Harry Potter course at St. Catherine University kept finding errors in the available scholarship. These students had been reading Harry Potter for their entire literate lives, and they demanded more attention to the details they found significant. We can do better than this, they said. Konchar Farr, two undergraduate teaching assistants, and five student editors decided to test that hypothesis. After issuing a call for contributions, they selected fifteen thoughtful academic essays by students from across the country. These essays examine the Harry Potter books from a variety of perspectives, including literary, historical, cultural, gender, mythological, psychological, theological, and genetic--there is even a nursing care plan for Tom Riddle. Interspersed among the essays are brief vignettes entitled My Harry Potter Story, where students write about their personal encounters with the novels. Although a quick Internet search yields a dazzling number of books about Harry Potter, few are as deeply invested or insightful as A Wizard of Their Age. Written and edited by--and for--members of the Harry Potter generation, these essays demonstrate this generation s passionate engagement with the Harry Potter phenomenon and provide numerous critical insights into the individual novels and the series as a whole.
