Summary
"Presents the genre from a holistic perspective, arguing that this subgenre of fantasy literature is misunderstood as result of decades of incomplete and reductionist literary studies. Asserts mythopoeic fantasy is the most complete literary expression of a worldview based on the existence of supernatural powers and could transform social consciousness with renewed emphasis on anticipating the future"--Provided by publisher
