The Central Myth

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 12:12 PM

Wikipedia on film producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura
(Harvard AB (1980) in Intellectual History*) —

"His tenure at Warner Bros. included discovering and
shepherding The Matrix  into production, and the
purchase of the rights to the Harry Potter  books by 
J. K. Rowling."

From the previous post

"But he enters into the central myth of
this book at another, higher level as well;
for he is an artist, a potter . . . ."

— Wendy Doniger O'Flaherty on 
Claude Lévi-Strauss, author of 
The Jealous Potter
