Wizardry And Wild Romance: A Study Of Epic Fantasy., Moorcock,  Michael
470 Moorcock, MichaelWizardry And Wild Romance: A Study Of Epic Fantasy. 02576
Victor Gollancz: London. 1987.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
''Moorcock shows the roots of fantasy in such medieval chivalric romances as 'Amadis of Gaul'. He traces influences from the Gothic tale (such as 'Melmoth The Wanderer' or 'The Mysteries of Udolpho') and 19th century romantic fiction, and provides a wide-ranging survey of growth of fantasy in the 20th century. On the one hand there are pulp magazine writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard and H. P. Lovecraft; on the other, there is the more respectable tradition of Cabell, Tolkien and Peake. On either side Moorcock shows informed appreciation of work he regards as genuine and original, and outpoken condemnation of the hackneyed, the unadventurous and the cosy. Among modern writers, such figures as Gene Wolfe, Robin McKinley, Robert Holdstock and Gene Wolfe are discussed knowledgeably.''
