about

Dr. James W. Thomas is the author of Repotting Harry Potter: A Professor's Guide for the Serious Re-Reader. Readers of that book will find in Rowling Revisited additional insights as Professor Thomas revisits the seven Potter books. Once again, he focuses on humor, puns, foreshadowing, and literary parallels and echoes in Harry's saga, in addition to re-examining some of his previous conclusions. Rowling Revisited also provides readers with insight to and analysis of Rowling's three ancillary books, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Dr. Thomas takes readers through Rowling's wise and witty brief books, emphasizing the surprising rewards of rereading. He approaches Rowling's books about beasts and Hogwart's favorite magical sport with the whimsy they warrant and gives readers an experienced literary analyst's view on Beedle's tales. Especially useful in Rowling Revisited are three extensive appendixes-"Fantastic Beasts and the Pages Where You'll Find Them," "Quidditch Through the Pages," and "The Books in the Potter Books." These listings include all significant references in the Harry Potter books to magical creatures, to Quidditch, and to Beedle the Bard and all the other books that magic folk read. In addition to making another rereading of the Potter books more rewarding, Rowling Revisited encourages readers to return to-or to discover for the first time-Rowling's delightful books on beasts and Quidditch, as well as Beedle's wonderful tales.
