The Arthurian legend in JK Rowlings Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to investigate if there are traces of the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. When studying the legend one immediately notices certain aspects it has in common with Harry Potter, the most obvious one being magic. At the beginning of the Goblet of Fire there are not that many links to the Arthurian legend except for the title, Goblet of Fire. The other half of the novel, though, contains many links that are fairly easy to notice. Perhaps the most important link between the legend and Harry Potter is the Goblet of Fire and the Holy Grail, since the two are linked in several ways. Taken together, these similarities make it evident that Rowling was inspired by, and made extensive use of, the Arthurian legends in her novels.
