Return of the Hero: Rowling, Tolkien, and Pullman

Editorial Overview

The success of Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings and Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy is something of a surprise. Even adult readers seem to prefer these books to more 'serious' literature. In Return of the Hero Christopher Wrigley analyses why this should be the case, and looks at how the books relate to sexuality, religion and in particular the idea of an initiation rite.
