Fantasy, Myth and the Measure of Truth by William Gray
Book DescriptionThis 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.
