The Potter Quest – This book is an examination of the seven Harry Potter novels as classic quest literature, and an examination of the way the Potter stories celebrate some very important values.
Among these are persistence, courage, and friendship.
Love plays a crucial role in this story–love is the the power that gives Lily Potter the strength to give her life to save Harry, and it is the denial of the power of love that is the most significant and eventually fatal flaw of Harry’s nemesis, Lord Voldemort.
The book also discusses other important themes–the importance of free will, the existence of evil, and the quiet power of goodness and humility.
The book examines thematic connections between the Potter stories and many other great pieces of literature, including allusions to Shakespeare and the Bible.
