PH 338
Contemporary Images of Man in Fantasy Novels


This course examines the Postmodern situation and the nature of the Human Person in four popular sets of Fantasy Novels. We reveal how we see the limitations contemporary life, man’s place, and the nature of good and evil, by how we alter those limitations in stories that alter the fundamental metaphysical and moral features of our world. We will consider two sets of novels influenced by World War II: Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings and C.S. Lewis’s Narnia series, and contrast them with two recent series: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling and The Golden Compass series by Philip Pullman. The course will examine what we think of the real, its metaphysics and moral structure, by how we conceive the unreal.
