Jamie Williamson, The Evolution of Modern Fantasy

  • Beschrijving

From Antiquarianism to the Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series

Palgrave, 2015. 1e druk. Paperback.

In this comprehensive study, Williamson traces the literary history of the fantasy genre from the eighteenth century to its coalescence following the success of Tolkien's work in the 1960s. While some studies have engaged with related material, there has been no extended study specifically exploring the roots of this now beloved genre.*
