Description - The Seeker's Guide to Harry Potter by Dr. George Trevarthen

"The Seeker's Guide to Harry Potter" offers 'seekers' of all kinds profound and fascinating insights into the narrative themes, symbols and mythic elements encountered in the Harry Potter books. Drawing from diverse spiritual and scholarly sources, it is an open-minded guide to the rich layers of meaning and symbolism we encounter in all seven of the novels. The Seeker's Guide doesn't try to 'read' J.K. Rowling's mind about the symbolism she may or may not have meant to put in the books, but to read the symbols as they appear, with some of the layers of meaning that they have traditionally held. Drawing from anthropology, theology, psychology and the history of the human experience of the Sacred, "The Seeker's Guide to Harry Potter" offers fans of any or no spiritual faith a deeper sense of magic and meaning in the novels and in their own lives.
