أي شخص واقعي هو شخصية ريتا سكيتر على أساس؟

6

قرأت قبل بضع سنوات أن ريتا سكيتر (ربما) كانت مستندة إلى شخص حي حقيقي.

أعتقد أنه كانت امرأة أميركية تكتب سيرًا ذاتية القلم عن العائلات الشهيرة. هل يمكن لأي شخص مساعدتي؟

لا أحد ، على الأقل ليس عن عمد.

في مقابلة على مهرجان أدنبره للكتاب عام 2004 ، سئلت عن شخصية سكيتر. هنا علمنا أن سكيتر ظهرت في مسودة مبكرة لـ حجر الفيلسوف ، وتدعي أيضًا أن سكيتر لا يعتمد على أي شخص حقيقي:

I love Rita. You know when Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron for the first time, in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone? Everyone says, “You’re back” and he realises for the first time that he is famous. In a very early draft, Rita, a journalist, was there and she ran up to him. For some reason she was called Bridget—I forget why. Anyway, she detained him too long in the Leaky Cauldron and I really needed to get him moving, so I thought that I would not put her there.

As I was writing book one, I was planning the rest, and book four was supposed to be where Harry’s fame became a burden to him. It really starts to weigh on him when he is exposed to the wider wizarding world so I thought that that would be the perfect place for Rita to come in. She was still called Bridget at the time.

I didn’t realise that by the time I wrote book four I would have met quite a lot of Ritas and people would assume that I was writing Rita in response to what had happened to me, which was not in fact the truth. However, I am not going to deny that writing Rita was a lot more fun having met a few people I had met. I actually quite like Rita. She is loathsome—morally, she’s horrible—but I can’t help admiring her toughness. She is very determined to do the job and there is something quite engaging about that.

قام الكثير من الأشخاص بتخمينات من الذي يعتمد عليه سكيتر ، ولكن رولينج وناشريها كانوا متسقين في القول بأنه لا يوجد مصدر إلهام مقصود.

كان هناك سؤال ذو صلة سابقًا في المقابلة نفسها:

Are any of your characters based on real people?

The only character who is deliberately based on a real person is Gilderoy Lockhart.

إنها لم تكشف أبدًا من الذي استند إليه Lockhart ، على الرغم من وجود تخمينات في وسائل الإعلام. إذا كانت ريتا سكيتر تقوم عمدا على شخص حقيقي ، أتخيل أنها ستخبرنا - إما أن سكيتر كان يقوم على شخص حقيقي ، أو أن لوكهارت لم تكن الوحيدة - حيث أنها تمكنت من الحفاظ على سرية هذا الشخص. لا أرى أي سبب يدعوها للكذب مباشرة حول هذا في الاقتباس الثاني.

هذا ما وجدته ، من PotterDomain.webs.com :

Some have speculated that Rowling's fraught relationship with the press was the inspiration behind the character Rita Skeeter. However, Rowling noted in 2000 that the character actually predates her rise to fame: "People have asked me whether Rita Skeeter was invented [to reflect Harry Potter's popularity], but in fact she was always planned." "I tried to put Rita in Philosopher's Stone - you know when Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron for the first time and everyone says, "Mr. Potter you're back!", I wanted to put a journalist in there. She wasn't called Rita then but she was a woman. And then I thought, as I looked at the plot overall, I thought, that's not really where she fits best, she fits best in Four when Harry's supposed to come to terms with his fame.

يبدو أنها كانت تملك الفكرة فقط ولم تكن تستند إلى أي شخص ، مما بحثت عنه (بحثت في مواقع أخرى أيضًا). قد أكون مخطئا مع ذلك.
