Boys and Girls Forever: Tenth Post (Rowling)

Boys and Girls ForeverSomehow I have become bored with reading about Harry Potter’s reception by the publishing, media, and religious world and beyond.  Rowling herself is vaguely interesting, but not nearly as interesting as her stories themselves.  Lurie’s interperetation of the four houses of Hogwarts as jocks, brains, goths and nice kids seems far too simple and even full of holes, since many characters don’t fit into their houses at all by that standard.  In general I wasn’t terribly impressed by this essay.
