Chapter 13Landscapes of growth, faith, and doubt
Mixing and mapping fantasy geography and contemporary political issues
The research literature on the hallmarks and history of fantasy has become quite comprehensive, and includes analyses of specific works or series in the genre. A large number of fantasy studies examine typical themes, motifs, and characteristics of the genre such as the struggle between good and evil, the chosen child, and the passage between the primary and secondary worlds. Although several research studies on fantasy have pointed out that maps are provided in many books to help readers find their way to the various places and navigate the depicted landscapes, fewer explore the mystical, fantastic, and magic places displayed in the maps.
