Is Harry Potter Gothic?

We’ve got castles and ghosts… a battle between good and evil… corrupt power structures…

Mazes and labyrinths… sinister and unpredictable architecture… the uncanny and hidden monsters…

Hybrids and the undead… magic and the sublime… the reluctant hero and the values under siege.

So yes… probably but there is room for interpretation.
