Taking up the various conceptions of heroism that are conjured in the Harry Potter series, this collection examines the ways fictional heroism in the twenty-first century challenges the idealized forms of a somewhat simplistic masculinity associated with genres like the epic, romance and classic adventure story. The collection's three sections address broad issues related to genre, Harry Potter's development as the central heroic character and the question of who qualifies as a hero in the Harry Potter series. Among the topics are Harry Potter as both epic and postmodern hero, the series as a modern-day example of psychomachia, the series' indebtedness to the Gothic tradition, Harry's development in the first six film adaptations, Harry Potter and the idea of the English gentleman, Hermione Granger's explicitly female version of heroism, adult role models in Harry Potter, and the complex depictions of heroism exhibited by the series' minor characters. Together, the essays suggest that the Harry Potter novels rely on established generic, moral and popular codes to develop new and genuine ways of expressing what a globalized world has applauded as ethically exemplary models of heroism based on responsibility, courage, humility and kindness.

Cartea The Hero Paradigm in Fantasy Novels este una interdisciplinară și se înscrie în perimetrul studiilor culturale literare, cu descinderi în mitologie, antropologie culturală, şi studiile filmului. Tipologia eroului este analizată aşa cum apare în mitologie şi basm, înainte de a fi investigate romanele fantastice scrise de J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis și J.K. Rowling, romane de secol XX ale căror rădăcini se regăsesc în cele două genuri precedente ale modului literaturii fantastice. Aceleaşi romane au fost ecranizate, trecând din modul lecturii în cel al vizualului şi chiar în cel al virtualului (al jocurilor video/pe computer). Cartea argumentează că eroii par să se afle în cădere liberă de-a lungul secolelor, ajungându-se la o epocă posteroică în secolul al XX-lea. Însă literatura fantastică și filmele bazate pe astfel de romane par să înlocuiască mitologia și eroismul tipic acesteia, reușind să insufle un nou interes în paradigma eroică.
