"The Lord of the Rings," "Twilight," and Young-Adult Fantasy Books : The New Yorker - 6 views

  •  
    Adam Gopnik discusses the appeal of high fantasy in YA. He misses the mark, I think, in not discussing Joseph Campbell's influence in all of this, and he's condescending throughout much of the piece, but it's an interesting analysis aside from these two admittedly major issues.
