These 17 essays from the seventh annual J. Lloyd Eaton Conference
examine the relationship between fantasy and science fiction.They
propose that fantasy and science fiction are not isolated
commercial literary forms, but instead are literary forms worthy of
the recognition reserved for traditional literature. Discussion of
genre identification ranges from the standard forms of literary
criticism embodied in Aristotle s "mimesis "and "poesis "to
innovative and possibly controversial points of view such as a
theory of humor, a philosophy of time, and a detailed analysis of
Dr. Seuss s "Cat in the Hat."The essays provide not only a detailed
study of literary elements but also the historical treatment of the
material, its commercial use, and its relationship to similar
literary forms such as the gothic tale and horror fiction. While
few of the essayists agree with one another, they all contribute
creative insights to the debate."
