Kotopoulos H. Triantafyllos, Chagianni Aggeliki, Papantonakis Georgios: Seeking for traces of Greek culture in the fictional world of Harry Potter

Abstract
 
The world-wide Harry Potter phenomenon concerns in a critical level many Literature’s approved researchers and scientists. The relative studies that were worked out are innumerable and they cover a wide range of the literary analysis’ discipline fields. In our study we will try to find out and show off the infiltration of the Greek culture and heritage in the origin of the names, in the presentation of the characters and the magic attributes that characterize them that are included organically in the plot of the ultimate fictions Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. All of them demarcate a field of research, which examines if Rowling as a writer proceeded consciously in the embodiment of these elements or they were included in the context of a wider humanitarian culture that penetrates unconsciously in the contemporary literary texts.
