Stephen R Donaldson And The Modern Epic Vision

by Christine Barkley, Stephen R Donaldson And The Modern Epic Vision Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Stephen R Donaldson And The Modern Epic Vision book, This critical study analyzes Stephen R. Donaldson’s role as a modern writer who uses the fantasy genre to discuss situations and predicaments germane to the modern world. Donaldson reclaims an epic vision in his Thomas Covenant novels that is lacking in most modern literature. Chapters demonstrate how this use of epic heroism helps solve seemingly insurmountable problems and provides more meaning and purpose for individuals. As Donaldson’s characters learn to transcend their world, the reader is engaged in a serious, enlightened discussion about the need for imagination, responsibility and acceptance to resolve such problems as alienation, pollution, disease and despair.

He is welcomed as the reincarnation of a legendary saviour, but Covenant is convinced he's having delusions.
