Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This huge volume is the first comprehensive encyclopedia of the fantasy field, offering an exciting new analysis of this highly diverse and hugely popular sphere of literature, from precursors such as Shakespeare and Dante, through Lewis Carroll, George MacDonald and L. Frank Baum to J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and their modern successors, like Ursula K. Le Guin, Peter S. Beagle, Stephen R. Donaldson and Jostein Gaarder. With over 4,000 entries and over 1 million words, it covers every aspect of fantasy - in literature, films, television, opera, art and comics.

Book News Annotation:

The encyclopedia of fantasy contains some 4,000 entries defining the techniques and terminology of the genre in both literature and film. Fantasy-philes and researchers will find short concise explications of themes and motifs (often linking works) and the most famous names in the business, including Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Ursula K. Le Guin. Of course, all notable screenings are duly noted--from every Frankenstein film ever made (yes, even the Brides of) to Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.
