Why didn't I think of that?!

Educating Alice had a great post about "Harry Potter as Global Folklore". She quotes Daniel H. Nexon as saying "Harry Potter is cultural globalization: it is part of the creation of transnational common currency of narratives, personages, themes, and other circulating commonplaces.”

Wow. Sometimes (or often, in my case) you need to just step aside and let infinitely more eloquent people do the talking.
