The latest episode of MuggleNet Academia is now released for your listening and academic pleasure. Lesson 23: 'There and Back Again: Chiasmus, Alchemy, and Ring Composition in Harry Potter' joins the forces of multiple special guests to dissect the composition of the Harry Potter literature text.
Join the Host of the show, Keith Hawk, and Co-Host John Granger, The Hogwarts Professor and author of The Deathly Hallows Lectures, as we are joined by special guest speakers Rochelle Deans, William Sprague, Kelly Kerr, and Steven Lee for a wild ride into literature structure.
- What is the difference between a Chiasmus and Ring Composition structure in literature and why do we care?
- Did Rowling base this structure on Tolkien, Lewis, or perhaps even Dante?
- Is JKR just a huge Obsessive Compulsive in structure herself?
- AND MUCH MORE!
Once you understand the Ring Composition of the Harry Potter books as individuals and as a series, you will NEVER read the books the same way again. (It is even more incredible)
