Jacques Coulardeau & Harry Potter at Academia.edu (64)
Harry Potter LIMITLESS – BORDER FREE – DEBONDED
J.K. Rowling had sworn she was finished with Harry
Potter, sworn so loud that everyone knew it was a lie. She tried some other
styles but it did not work really.
So revive that poor dead and buried Harry Potter the author changes media and
shifts from the printing press to the theater stage where she finds two people
who are going to help her in that new venture, a playwright and a stage
The play in London
was and is a success but the book, though bestselling is going to be
disappointing to the readers who have not seen the play. The money-making logic
of the venture will lead the producers of the play to releasing a DVD-Bluray
capture of the stage production as fast as possible for the millions of people
who want more than a few stage directions. She might be tempted to shift
directly to a cinema production but that will frustrate the readers the same
way since a cinema production cannot be compared to a play. It is like
moonshine and starshine in a fully sunny sky. The film will have to betray the
play to be realistic in its special effects.
But what I discover is that the author, from the very start, is obsessed by
trilogies, triads, ternary structures, and so on.
Popular literature is the mirror in which the
standard literate audience of any country, even the world, is looking at
itself. The authors are only the go-between and the intercessors. There is no
hope for anyone in this globalized world if we do not have some popular
literature, becoming films, TV series and whatever can reach the WIDEST
audience that enables people to dream and be haunted by the liberating
cathartic vision of a multi-layer world.
J.K. Rowling is a ternary mind (probably from too
much Christian education), so she sees a world cut in three tiers.
On top the muggle world, the one you and I can see
Under or behind the world of wizards and
witchcraft, but the good one, that of Harry Potter and consorts.
Finally even deeper or farther behind the world of
Voldemort, the wizard turned wicked, evil and morbid, the populist wizard
calling for the persecution of muggles, the cult of pure bloods , the full
domination of everyone by his dung beetles and Shadows of Death.
It is a nightmare that we have to keep in mind all
the time. It takes very little for this world of evil populist fascistic
isolationist and imperialistic policies to become true any time and start a
burkini witch hunt.
That's why Harry Potter is the catharsis we need
for us not to vote for the lethal and death-bringing trompe l'oeil politicians
that try to hypnotize us into locking the doors and the windows, even the
chimneys of course, to anything that is not pure, meaning purely us and nothing
