Ambiguity in 'Star Wars' and 'Harry Potter' : A (Post)Structuralist Reading of Two Popular Myths, Paperback / softback Book

Ambiguity in 'Star Wars' and 'Harry Potter' : A (Post)Structuralist Reading of Two Popular Myths Paperback / softback


The study combines theories of myth, popular culture, structuralism and post-structuralism to explain the enormous appeal of "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter".

Although much research already exists on both stories individually, this book is the first to explicitly bring them together in order to explore their set-up and the ways in which their structures help produce ideologies on gender and ethnicity.

Hereby, the comparison yields central insights into the workings of modern myth and uncovers structure as integral to the success of the popular genre.

It addresses academic audiences and all those wishing to approach the tales from a fresh angle.
