Classics vs Harry Potter #3: Remus Lupin

COMIC –  Behind the name: Remus Lupin (check the site for new comic!)

Originally drawn for the Iris Classics Centre’s Festival of Imagined Worlds, J K Rowling Section. The author studied French with Classics at Exeter University, and these comics are devised to explore the possible etymology (word-meaning) behind the names of particular characters. The explanations of the links between meaning and background are purposely missing – it was much more fun at the Festival to ask the kids to make the connections themselves, after which they got a copy to take home. Discussions welcome!
