Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant: Variations on the Fantasy Tradition

Portada
Kent State University Press, 1995 - 275 páginas
Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant' examines Donaldson's first three novels in an attempt to define their place in the fantasy canon. The book begins with an extensive introduction to the fantasy genre in which W.A. Senior eloquently defends fantasy against charges of being mere escapism, or simply juvenile, and not warranting serious critical consideration.

I farmed this text for several ideas and citations about American Fantasy. Through Senior's examination of the Covenant series I compiled an extensive understanding of geographic symbolism in literature. Additionally, the author's insights about Fantasy brings many questions to light about Donaldson, the Fantasy tradition, and literature in general.
This work shows exemplary research and analytic work.
