LALW222 Fantasy Worlds 3cr


Modern fantasy literature consists of fantastic
stories set in imagined  worlds. It features
characterscreated by the author rather than drawn
directly from traditional myths and legends. The
course examines the origins of the genre, which
emerged during the nineteenth century, and which
has taken both epic and satiric forms. Although
some attention is given to the legends,
folktales, and romances that provided models and
inspiration to fantasy authors, the main focus is
on the classic works of the genre.
