Greška u novoj priči Dž. K. Rouling


Iako je prošlo više od jedne decenije kako je britanska spisateljica Džoana Rouling završila sa pisanjem serijala knjiga o Hariju Poteru ona, na svom sajtu, i dalje objavljuje priče iz sveta čarobnjaka.

Posetioci sajta su primetili grešku u najnovijoj kratkoj priči koja bi trebalo da bude uvod u predstojeći film Fantastične zveri i gde ih naći. U priči se najavljuje održavanje Magičnog kongresa u Americi.

“MACUSA relocated to Baltimore, where President Able Fleming had his home, but the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, followed by the arrival of the No-Maj Congress in the city, made MACUSA understandably nervous and they departed for Washington.

It was in Washington that President Elizabeth McGilliguddy presided over the infamous ‘Country or Kind?’ debate of 1777. Thousands of witches and wizards from all over America descended upon MACUSA to attend this extraordinary meeting, for which the Great Meeting Chamber had to be magically enlarged. 

The issue for discussion was: did the magical community owe their highest allegiance to the country in which they had made their homes, or to the global underground wizarding community? Were they morally obliged to join American No-Majs in their fight for liberation from the British Muggles? Or was this, simply put, not their fight?”

Dž. K. Rouling piše kako je ovaj kongres bio održan u Vašingtonu 1777. godine. Autorki je promakla činjenica da je Vašington osnovan tek 1790. godine , a ime je dobio godinu dana kasnije. Dakle, trinaest, odnosno četrnaest, godina nakon što je u njemu zakazan Magični kongres.

Istina je da magični svet ne mora biti striktno vezan za događaje u zvaničnoj istoriji Normalaca tako da je možda ovo opravdanje ovog navodnog propusta.
