Summary
Many of the developments and concerns of the twentieth century have been anticipated by the writers of fantasy fiction. In this collection of essays, Kath Filmer has gathered specialist writers who examine the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, H. G. Wells, Ursula Le Guin and others, as works of social and cultural criticism. Essays in this book also deal with contemporary writers of fantasy - Angela Carter, Salman Rushdie, and children's writers Alan Garner and Madeleine L'Engle. Other essays focus upon sword and sorcery novels and the way in which elements of television news can be read as fantasy. This is a book for all those who read and enjoy fantasy, and who want to deepen their appreciation of favourite authors in the genre
