Cover image of Thinking Queerly: Medievalism, Wizardry, and Neurodiversity in Young Adult TextsThinking Queerly: Medievalism, Wizardry, and Neurodiversity in Young Adult Texts

By Jes Battis

Why do we love wizards? Where do these magical figures come from? This volume traces the wizard from medieval Arthurian literature to contemporary young adult adaptations. By exploring the link between Merlin and Harry Potter, or Morgan la Fey and Sabrina, readers will see how the wizard offers spaces of hope and transformation for young readers. In particular, this book examines how wizards think differently, and how this difference can resonate with both LGBTQ and neurodivergent readers, who’ve been told they don’t fit in.

Want this book? Don't want to leave it to chance? Buy Chaucer's Polyphony from De Gruyter.
