MuggleNet Academia Lesson 40: "The Wizarding War was Won on the Quidditch Pitch of Hogwarts"

MuggleNet Academia is a comprehensive insight into the literary thematic elements and scholastic endeavors that author J.K. Rowling has provided in her writings of the Harry Potter and Cormoran Strike series.

We look through the entire Harry Potter series for various elements in alchemy, literary components, composition attributes, as well as available classes at Universities and Colleges around the world, and various unique studies that are being implemented today. We also dissect the Cormoran Strike series as the books are being released, helping readers understand and appreciate the writings of the modern-day Dickens, J.K. Rowling.

In this lesson, we discuss the published essay from Harry Potter for Nerds Part II by author Emily Strand titled: "The Second War was Won on the Quidditch Pitch of Hogwarts: Quidditch as a Symbol Set in the Harry Potter Narrative." This discussion reveals the symbolic parallels between the player positions and the characters who act out these roles in the larger story. Additionally, we focus on the literary alchemy found within the Quidditch game itself and how this relates to the overall Hogwarts Saga plot twists and themes.

We hope you enjoy the show. Thank you for listening.
