Fantasy permits its readers a certain distance from pragmatic affairs and offers them a clearer insight into them. It offers a parallel reality, which gives us a renewed awareness of what we already know. Fantasy invites the reader to recover a belief which has been beclouded by knowledge, to renew a faith which has been shattered by fact. As the pace of modern life quickens, the fascination for fantasy literature quickens simultaneously.
