This presentation will explore the _Harry Potter_ series within the context of the British literary tradition, especially the authors and books that Rowling has recognized as favorites in interviews and on her website: Jane Austen, E. Nesbit, Dorothy Sayers, Katherine Mansfield, Elizabeth Gouge, Dodie Smith, and Roddy Doyle. By analyzing the series alongside the authors named on Rowling's virtual bookshelf, we can better appreciate Rowling's attention to character development and narrative form as well as her contribution to literary history.
