Summary "This detailed study of Harry Potter explores the limits of the formulaic structure of adolescent fantasy fiction like that of Rowling's and also examines the impulse of exploration, subversion, and resistance contained within the formula. Within the co-existing networks of subversion and containment in the narrative, young adult fantasy becomes an embodiment of the experience of adolescence"--Provided by publisher.
