Harry Potter as Ring Composition and Ring Cycle
Put on a pair of Harry's round glasses and experience the Hogwarts Saga as you never have before. The magic of Harry Potter is the remarkable artistry and story-scaffolding of Ms. Rowling's writing. John Granger explains that the seven book series as a whole is an integrated Ring Composition and that each individual novel, too, is built on a strict Ring of chapters that are, as Dumbledore puts it, "reverse echoes" of chapters reflecting their meaning on opposite sides of that book. Granger charts the series architecture and the lay-out of every book with easy-to-follow diagrams and tables so this structure is unmistakable and then he links this traditional artistry to Ms. Rowling's postmodern and Christian meaning. For the Potter-maniac in your home or the thoughtful reader curious about the how and why of Harry's popularity, 'Harry Potter as Ring Composition' delivers amazing insights about and a fresh appreciation of the genius and magic of Ms. Rowling's work.
