Scepticism and Hope in Twentieth-Century Fantasy Literature
Religious discourse has become alien to the secular and skeptical western societies of the twentieth century. There is real discomfort when religious discourse appears either in the popular press or in society. But even in a secular society, there is still a psychological need (one might even use the stronger word will), if not to believe, then at least to hope. Dr. Filmer states this need is met in the literature of fantasy.
Kath Filmer received her Ph.D. from the University of Queensland and was co-founder of The Inner Ring: The Mythopoeic Literature Society of Australia and managing editor of its journal, The Ring Bearer. She has published works on polemic literature and on C.S. Lewis in particular in Extrapolation, Seven, and Mythlore.
