Fantastic Worlds: Myths, Tales, and Storiesby Eric S Rabkin
Synopses & Reviews
As the first international anthology to cover the entire scope of fantastic narrative, Fantastic Worlds presents over fifty tales, myths, and stories, ranging from Genesis to Ovid, Hans Christian Andersen to J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe to James Thurber, and Franz Kafka to Italo Calvino. Including tales of fairies and elves, ghost stories, high fantasy, and stories of social criticism and the conflict between science and religion, this volume presents a diverse selection of writings that all share the same capacity to liberate the human spirit through the wild mental acrobatics of fantasy.
Covers fantastic narrative from ancient myths to modern science fiction in more than fifty tales which represent man's imagination in etiology, entertainment, and wonder.
