The Dharma of Dragons and Daemons

Buddhist Themes in Modern Fantasy

from Loy, David R./ Goodhew

The literary minded, and especially science fiction/fantasy readers will be surprised and delighted by this enjoyable look at some favourite authors, including Tolkien and Lord of the Rings. This pioneering work - in the tradition of David Loy's cutting-edge presentation of a Buddhist social theory in the Great Awakening - illuminates some of modern fantasy's greatest works, and the universal qualities of the Buddhist teachings they embody. Authors and works examined include J.R.R.Tolkein's Lord of the Rings, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea series, Michael Ende's Momo, and the anime Japanese movie Princess Mononoke.
