177 pp, 8 3/4" H. "Around the world, fantasy writers are drawing more and more from ancient Welsh mythic tales and folklore. What is the secret of their timeless appeal? (The author) examines the contemporary retelling of the old Welsh stories and explores the way they treat the deepest and most urgent of all human needs - the need to belong. She discusses fantasy novels by popular authors such as Lloyd Alexander, Madeleine L'Engle, Alan Garner and Stephen Lawhead. Historical romances have fantasy elements too - such as those by Sharon Penman, Edith Pargeter and Barbara Erskine. Arthurian literature and films are also reviewed in a discussion of the Celtic notion of the hero and its importance, on a personal level, for the individual reader." Contents: Introduction: Welsh Myth and the Sense of Belonging; Eternal Triangles and the Cycles of Myth; Reconstructing the Present from the Stories of the Past; Children from Dysfunctional Families: Instruments of Mythic Healing; The Place of the Pig-Keeper: To Know Oneself; Arthurian Novels and the Spirit of the Welsh Place; Belonging and the Right of Possession: Children's Novels; Welsh Myth in Historical Novels; The Film Hero and Welsh Mythology; Myth, Theology and Belonging; Notes; Index. Light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling, very light edge wear, very light rubbing, two small areas of tiny scuffs at bottom of spine.
