Este volumen, que presenta quince nuevos ensayos destinados tanto a acad\u00E9micos como a otros lectores de fantas\u00EDa, explora muchos de los ejemplos m\u00E1s significativos del g\u00E9nero moderno, incluyendo las obras de H.P. Lovecraft, The Hobbit, C.S., de J.R.R. Tolkien. Las Cr\u00F3nicas de Narnia de Lewis, la serie Harry Potter de J.K. Rowling, la serie Juego de tronos de George R.R.

Estos variados estudios plantean cuestiones fascinantes sobre el g\u00E9nero, las historias literarias y art\u00EDsticas, y la suspensi\u00F3n de la incredulidad exigida no s\u00F3lo a los lectores de fantas\u00EDa, sino tambi\u00E9n a los estudiantes de la antig\u00FCedad. Desde arp\u00EDas a hobbits, desde C\u00EDclopes a Cthulhu, y todo tipo de monstruos y mitos intermedios, este estudio comparativo de los cl\u00E1sicos y la fantas\u00EDa revela profundas similitudes entre las formas antiguas y modernas de imaginar el mundo. Aunque la antig\u00FCedad y la actualidad difieren en muchos aspectos, en su base, la literatura antigua resuena profundamente con la imagen de la fantas\u00EDa moderna de mundos en movimiento y cuerpos en movimiento.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3227771093#Person\/stevens_benjamin_eldon<\/a>> ; # Benjamin Eldon Stevens<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3227771093#Person\/rogers_brett_m<\/a>> ; # Brett M.
