Описание:Why do some critics see fantasy as a cult? Is there a link between fantasy and environmentalism? The book answers questions such as, what is the relationship between fantasy and medieval romance? Why Are Critics Afraid of Dragons? examines the reasons for this neglect, and presents a new critical paradigm for understanding and valuing genre fantasy on its own terms. It presents a substantial contribution to theories of fantasy literature, offering historical perspectives and critical insights into the scholarly heritage of fantasy, and will be a useful resource to students and researchers of popular culture and appeal to a general readership. By examining the social contexts of fantasy from fairytales to the mass-market genre, the book draws innovative conclusions about fantasys place in the field of literature and its relevance to contemporary audiences. Fantasy literature is hugely popular amongst readers worldwide yet has long been shunned by literary critics. It is the first study of its kind, combining critiques of fantasy from Coleridge to Tolkien, Todorov and Le Guin with cultural criticism and ecofeminism, reconstructing fantasy as a complex field of cultural production.

Danse Macabre

I am not suggesting that Ira Levin is either Jackie Vernon or George Orwell masquerading in a fright wig-nothing so simple or simplistic. I am suggesting that the books he has written achieve suspense without turning into humorless thudding tracts (two novels of the Humorless, Thudding Tract School of horror writing are Damon, by C. Terry Cline, and The Exorcist, by William Peter Blatty-Cline has since improved as a writer, and Blatty has fallen silent . . . forever, if we are lucky). Levin is one of the few writers who has returned more than once to the field of horror and the supernatural and who seems unafraid of the fact that much of the material the genre deals with is utterly foolish-and at that, he has done better than many critics, who visit the genre the way rich white ladies once visited the children of New England factory slaves on Thanksgiving with food baskets and on Easter with chocolate eggs and bunnies. These slumming critics, unaware both of their own infuriating elitism and their total ignorance of what popular fiction does and what it is about, are able to see the foolishness spawned as a by-product of the bubbling potions, the pointy black hats, and all the other clanking huggermugger trappings of the supernatural tale, but are unable to see-or refuse to see-the strong and universal archetypes that underlie the best of them ...»
