about

This book shows how the fantasy tradition culminating in Pullman's His Dark Materials inherits the Romantic quest to transpose spiritual and moral values, once the prerogrative of organized religion, into new myths. Wary both of escapist fantasy and 'grand narratives', it explores how stories can generate a new vision.
WILLIAM GRAY is Professor of Literary History and Hermeneutics, and Director of the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy at the University of Chichester, UK.
