Quibble of the Week: ‘Philosophers and Sorcerers: Was it Really a Prudent Move to Change the Name?’
Our next Quibble of the Week comes from Buckbeak, who finds one small feature of the Potter series to be “infuriating”: the title change from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
The infamous name change argument is one that has been brought up many times, from U.K. and U.S. readers alike. Many have wondered what the reasons were for the name change and whether or not these were truly legitimate.
Buckbeak’s essay certainly provides a sound case in favor of the book’s original title. Do you agree that it should have been left as it was?
