Whited and M. Katherine Grimes describe in “What Would Harry Do? J.K. Rowling and Lawrence Kohlberg’s Theories of Moral Development”: “Although Harry’s dilemmas involve creatures and…

    Every human has a name. It is our nature, our instinct to be called something. Names are the normal. Everyone gets a name at birth and life goes on, but people have discovered new uses for names. Authors are using fake names, or pseudonyms, to conceal their writing for many different reasons. Pen names allow authors to overcome inequality and help authors to be seen professionally. The article “What’s in a Name” states, “Rowling’s publishers feared that young boys—the presumed audience of the…
