Harry Potter upon reflection

Greg Garrett has reflected on the arch of the seven Potter novels in One Fine Potion. He draws parallels with CS Lewis and other who have written fantasy with Christian symbolism. One thing I found interesting is his pondering on Rowling's work with Amnesty International and the creation of Umbridge and the institutionalization of torture. Die hard Potter fans will enjoy it as will those looking at the religious overtones of fiction.
