Summary "J.K. Rowling has drawn deeply from classical sources to inform and color her Harry Potter novels, with allusions ranging from the obvious to the obscure. Rowling's use of classical material is abundant and varied, and often presented with irony and humor as she introduces a timeless literary tradition to a new readership"--
