Download Free Heroism in the Harry Potter Series PDF by Katrin Berndt Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-04-22 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Taking up the various conceptions of heroism that are conjured in the Harry Potter series, this collection examines the ways fictional heroism in the twenty-first century challenges the idealized forms of a somewhat simplistic masculinity associated with genres like the epic, romance and classic adventure story. The collection's three sections address broad issues related to genre, Harry Potter's development as the central heroic character and the question of who qualifies as a hero in the Harry Potter series. Among the topics are Harry Potter as both epic and postmodern hero, the series as a modern-day example of psychomachia, the series' indebtedness to the Gothic tradition, Harry's development in the first six film adaptations, Harry Potter and the idea of the English gentleman, Hermione Granger's explicitly female version of heroism, adult role models in Harry Potter, and the complex depictions of heroism exhibited by the series' minor characters. Together, the essays suggest that the Harry Potter novels rely on established generic, moral and popular codes to develop new and genuine ways of expressing what a globalized world has applauded as ethically exemplary models of heroism based on responsibility, courage, humility and kindness.

From questions even a muggle should know all the way through to trivia that would test Dumbledore himself, this is an excellent way to enjoy the wizarding world even more.

While there have been adaptations (books to films, for example) for more than a century, modern technology and media consumption have expanded the scope of trans-mediating practices. Nowhere are these more evident than within the Harry Potter universe, where a coherent world and narrative are iterated across books, films, video games, fan fiction, art, music and more. Curated by a leading Harry Potter scholar, this collection of new essays explores the range of Potter texts across a variety of media.

In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he's only thirteen years old, Theo Boone thinks he's one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk - and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. In Theodore Boone: Young Lawyer, Theo finds himself dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial when a cold-blooded killer is about to be set free. In Theodore Boone: The Abduction, Theo's best friend April disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April. Theodore Boone never expected to be the victim of crime himself. But, in Theodore Boone: The Accused, stolen computer equipment turns up in Theo's school locker. The police start leaning on him hard, and Theo is the only suspect. What if he is found guilty? What about his dreams of becoming a lawyer?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, language: English, abstract: 'Tell me one last thing' said Harry. Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?' [...] 'Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?' While some people devour the books enthusiastically, others despise and would rather burn them. But whatever people think about the Harry Potter series' social, educational or literary value, they can hardly dismiss them. Harry Potter is a phenomenon worth examining. It is not only the destiny of that shy little boy with his lighting-bolt scar on his forehead that triggered the “Harrycane”, but also the appeal of the magical world of witchcraft. For centuries, witchcraft is the object of research for various scholars of literature, history, theology, arts, folklore, anthropology, medicine and law. To analyse historical witchcraft, they access preserved spell books, court records, administrative correspondences, pamphlets, penitentials, sermons and art works. Due to stereotypisation processes, there is a gap between the popular and academic knowledge of witchcraft. While academics rather refer to the historical witch who supposedly threatened the Church and the State since the Middle Ages and was persecuted in the Early Modern Age, laymen rather associate the witch with pictures they conceive from popular literature: the fairy tale image of an old, crook-backed, evil women who lures children into her gingerbread house and eats them. How has the image of the supposedly “single greatest threat to Christian European civilization” changed during the Modern Times? Since the first volume was published, scholars from various fields have approached the Harry Potter phenomenon. The main topics of research have been literary interpretations concerning language, motifs, generic classification, mythological elements and cultural questions relating to family, school, peer group and societal issues. Further academic approaches to the Harry Potter series tackled questions of reader interest research, communication studies, marketing strategies, didactics, translations, theology and film adaptations. As of yet, there has not been much research in the field of history and historical witchcraft. The purpose of this paper is to determine whether and how witchcraft and witches in the Harry Potter series are modern. [...]

Although Fantasy Fiction is generally defined by its impossibility, Fantasy Fiction not an illogical form. It is, in fact, governed by a sense of rules and structure, one that reflects our current understanding of space-time and cosmology. These models are an integral part of the structure of Heroic Epic Fantasy itself. Thus, this book introduces new ways of perceiving current productions of the Fantasy genre. In doing so, it also explores how Fantasy Fiction exhibits a conscious awareness of its own form.

THE MARRIAGE PACT Ten years ago, Hadleigh Stevens was eighteen and this close to saying "I do," when Tripp Galloway interrupted her walk down the aisle. Now that she’s recovered from her youthful mistake and Tripp’s interference, Hadleigh and her single friends form a marriage pact. She doesn’t expect Tripp to meddle with her new plan to find Mr. Right—or to discover that she’s more attracted to him than ever! Divorced and eager to reconnect with his cowboy roots, Tripp returns to Bliss County to save his ailing father’s ranch. He’s not looking for another wife—certainly not his best friend’s little sister. But he’s never been able to forget Hadleigh… THE MARRIAGE CHARM The women of Bliss County have a pact—to find husbands. The right husbands. One already has: Hadleigh Stevens, who married rancher Tripp Galloway a few months ago. Now Melody Nolan thinks it’s her turn. Melody has recently found success as a jewelry designer, and her work is the focus of her life. She’s not exactly unhappy, but she wants more. She’s always been attracted to Spence Hogan, the local chief of police, but she’s convinced that Spence, a notorious charmer, isn’t what you’d call husband material. Spence is a good cop who isn’t scared of anything—except love. And yet…there’s something about Melody. Something his heart can’t ignore. THE MARRIAGE SEASON Since Hadleigh, Melody and Bex—the best of best friends—entered into a marriage pact, two of them have found (and married) the men of their hearts. But Bex doesn’t think she’ll be as fortunate as the others. Then single father Tate Calder comes to Mustang Creek with his two sons in tow, boys who befriend Bex’s eightyearold nephew. Which means she and the handsome, aloof newcomer are constantly thrown together. But is the marriage season over? Or can a man with doubts about love be the right husband for a woman who wants it all?

Book excerpt: Murder and mayhem, lying and cheating, and one PI trying to sort it all out Take a ride in private investigator Emmett Naoki’s car while he chases down cheating spouses, finds missing persons, and untangles complicated murders faster than anyone else. He might not like having sidekicks, but he hasn’t gotten rid of his yet! David Wright digs up clues right by Emmet’s side. It’s fine, Emmett is totally not still into David. That was over back in high school! Find a Man, Don’t Settle Down Cheating exes, missing exes, and former crushes There are few things in this world that private investigator Emmett Naoki loves. His job and the business he’s built, OWL Investigations, are his biggest passion. Then there’s sleeping in and working alone, but he isn’t getting much of either these days. His hates are similarly specific. He despises his gift—or curse, depends on how you look at it—of always being hit with the truth right in the face. He loathes smug bastards who used to make him feel unwanted as a teen. Yet he’s hired their king, David Wright, as his sidekick. In Emmett’s defense, he was drunk at the time. At the top of his hate list are liars and cheaters. They’re the lowest of the low. So why exactly has Emmet agreed to help cheating ex no.1, Byron, to find backstabbing—and now missing—ex no.2, Chris? Especially since the cops think nothing’s amiss. It’s Murder on the Catwalk More lying, more cheating, more blasts from the past. With a side of murder. Just when Emmett thought he was done with exes with a thing for backstabbing, another one falls in his lap. Not his ex, for once. No, this one belongs to Emmett’s new partner at OWL Investigations and former—okay, maybe current—crush, David. The bad news? Shirou is here to stay and piss off Emmett for the foreseeable future. Why David doesn’t kick him out, Emmett will never know. The worst news? Emmett can’t stop thinking about the kiss he’s shared with David. There’s good news, sort of. Emmett gets to travel to a seaside resort in Turkey to investigate a suspicious death. Too bad he must go back to his modeling roots to find the killer! Leave Me, Baby, One More Time Sidekicks are so much trouble! Especially when you have a soft spot for them. And they’re suspected of murder. Private investigator Emmett Naoki went to great lengths to stay clear of his assistant and past and present crush, David Wright. Yet one call for help is all it takes for Emmett to drop his vacation plans and run home to save David’s ass. The hardest part is to keep the I told you sos to a minimum. For months, David has refused to kick Shirou, his ex, to the curb. To no one’s surprise, Shirou puts them all in danger when his long-term lover is murdered. In Emmett and David’s office. David makes an obvious suspect. He’s also too stubborn to make things easier for himself. Add a possible Yakuza connection, an on-and-off girlfriend with an axe to grind, and David’s lying ex being as useless as ever, and Emmett is served a bitter cocktail of disasters just waiting to happen. Bottoms up! If you like fast-paced mysteries, snarky private investigators, and enough secrets and trust issues to last you a lifetime, download this binge-worthy three novel collection today and see where Emmett’s “gift” takes him next.

This book was released on 2020-08-14 with total page 175 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book offers a biopolitical analysis of J. K. Rowling’s globally-known Harry Potter series, including Jack Thorne and John Tiffany’s stage production of Rowling’s story, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (2016). It indicates that modern children’s fantasy school stories both perpetuate power inequalities as an effective dispositif of bioengineering, and simultaneously provide a political dissident perspective to power relations through an impossible fantasy world parallel to the real one. It applies Michel Foucault’s biopolitical analytics, referring to his key works to reveal that race and class are used interactively as an agent for the exercise of biopower, in addition to Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri’s rereading of Foucauldian biopolitics and biopower, introducing the concepts of “multitude,” “the common,” and “the Empire” to decipher the relationship between power and resistance besides the types and results of resistance in relation to biopolitics and biopower. As such, the book will appeal to undergraduates, academics, and all readers interested in modern fantasy works and school stories as well as critical theories, including those of Foucault and Hardt and Negri, particularly biopolitical analytics.
