This unit examines fantasy literature through a study of contemporary texts. It aims to bring together adult and children's fantasy to explore how these two genres operate. It introduces students to popular and successful fantasy works as well as the scholarly and media responses to these texts. Students will develop approaches to fantasy literature based on thinking through how it communicates, what it communicates about, and how it relates to its context. The unit then challenges students to take off the training wheels, by exploring a variety of fantasy works that do not already have a body of criticism surrounding them. Students will learn to read fantasy texts through theoretically informed frameworks that are developed through dialogue in the unit and to think critically about the importance of the fantastic in literature.
