Rowling returns with a new Harry Potter storyAcclaimed author JK Rowling has written a new Harry Potter story and published it on her website, Pottermore, reports India Today.
The author’s latest work has been titled ‘Defence Against the Dark Arts Teacher’ — a biography of Dolores Umbridge.
Rowling, 49, had previously said Umbridge is the character she dislikes the most, explaining: ‘Her desire to control, to punish, and to inflict pain, all in the name of law and order, are, I think, every bit as reprehensible as Lord Voldemort’s unvarnished espousal of evil.’
Umbridge is based on a real person, according to the author, who has previously said she once worked alongside a woman who was ‘the most bigoted, spiteful champion of the death penalty’.
‘I have noticed more than once in life that a taste for the ineffably twee can go hand-in-hand with a distinctly uncharitable outlook on the world. A love of all things saccharine often seems present where there is a lack of real warmth or charity,’ Rowling added.
