She should be proud. I surely would be, as an aspiring author. She's one of the few authors who still lives whom I'd love to meet. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Francesca Marinaro" <poetprodigy7@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

From what I've read, Rowling herself responded to that claim. She didn't
realize she was writing a book of that sort until after the first one was
published, and it wasn't her original idea, but she is proud to be ranked
among c.S Louis and the like.

There is another school of thought which gets much less press that Rowling
might be following in the footsteps of the inklings.
And of course, there's Chesterton's famous argument that "ferry land", as he

calls it, lead him to Christ. I'm somewhat sympathetic to his case.

Well, it isn't. That's the whole point. But didn't you hear the whole
ridiculous debate when the books first came out and through a good deal of

the writing of the series? I'm sure it still exists, but it's not so much
of an issue now. Since the terms witchcraft and wizardry are used, and
other such things, like the class names (divination, etc.) it was assumed
by a certain group of people that these things were being used in their
true forms. We never bothered to find out whether it was true or not. My
parents gave me permission to read the books when I was about thirteen or
fourteen. I didn't take them up on it till I was seventeen (not quite a
year ago), and even now that I've tried to dispell the myths at least for
my own family, my mom gets upset every time i bring it up. (This probably
has something to do with fear and partly something to do with the fact
that she's aware that I do it just to drive her crazy sometimes. What can
I say?)

The world of Harry Potter an alternate one, and if remember that the
magic has nothing to do with this world, I can't see how anything is
dangerous.
