A decent enough lecture series and uite comprehensive Rabkin covers the significant contributions to science fiction and fantasy including fairy tales and the like from the Grimm brothers and earlier to modern day including recurring themes and stories Which is why this series is 24 lectures long instead of the usual 12 I didn t necessarily buy all of his symbolism and interpretations I realize sex is a dominant theme in literature but I don t know that literature is about sex uite as often as "Rabkin thinks it is Then too he sees allusions that I m "thinks it is Then too he

#sees allusions that #
allusions that m entirely sure the authors intended Of course there are themes and ideas in the cultural memory and I have no trouble believing that authors can unintentionally reflect or allude to other works or archetypes But making the argument that such allusions were intentional reuires a stronger correlation or additional behind the scenes insightStill Rabkin knows his stuff and is not unpleasant to listen to even if he s not the most scintillating lecturer I ve ever heard And lectures like this are a great source of recommended reading lists which I always appreciate Be warned here you will find statements such as thisIn fact the union of these pieces in the tripartide manner or uadripartide manner of Freud or Jung is what gives psychological strengthI ll fully admit that I am being incredibly unfair in taking the above uote out of context but that I am being incredibly unfair in taking the above uote out of context but wanted to illustrate what I mean when I say that there is to Rabkin s lectures than many readers starting with myself are looking forConsider this an advanced analysis of FantasyScience Fiction from the point of view of a professor with theories to advance on the subjects I might suggest Micheal Drout s From Here To Infinity An Exploration of Science Fiction Literatureand Rings Swords and Monsters Exploring Fantasy Literature for of an overvi.

Ew of the mediums as well as a bit of an accessible start Though Drout s stance that all Fantasy after Tolkein is a reaction to Tolkein is short sightedI will say this though Rabkin had taught me something about HG Wells and specifically about War of the Worlds that I wasn t aware of Arthur C Clake as well There s a lot in here and while some of it is academic dissertation gone wild there is plenty of value as well Terrific series That Will Help You To will help you to appreciate the fantastic in literature eg fables children s literature Tolkien sci fi Alice in Wonderland Virginia Woolf magical realism and much Most listeners will have read many of the books that Dr Rabkin talks about but he brings out in a believable way some of the deeper layers of meaning that I never saw in my surface readings A few notes from the lecture on children s lit1 Characters typically the hero is a child or animal Relationships are between children animals and a parent figure Children have full autonomy2 Plot often simple episodic clearly goal directed may be motivated by a single emotion and typically with a happy ending3 Theme simple and typically with a single problem with a clear solution4 Style restricted vocab but they often use cute or periphrastic language problem with a clear solution4 Style restricted vocab but they often use cute or periphrastic language they employ verse and nonsense5 Format Format matters illustrations size edition color font styleWhy do adult like children s lit1 They enjoy it on its own terms or for nostalgia2 Some children s books are also adult books3 Can be used to comment on children4 Use of the form by adults to deal simplistically with a complex adult problem eg Orwell s Animal FarmThe second half of the course moves into an exploration and discussion of science fiction which Dr Rabkin defines in my recollection as fiction that s made plausible against a background of science and technology It s a wonderful Audience; 6 HG Wells We Are All Talking Animals; 7 Franz Kafka Dashed Fantasies; 8 Woolf Fantastic Feminism Periods of Art; 9 Robbe Grillet Experimental Fiction Myth; 10 Tolkien Mass Production of the Fantastic; 11 Children's Literature and the Fantastic; 12 Postmodernism and the Fantastic; 13 Defining Science Fiction; 14 Mary Shelley Grandmother of Science Fiction; 15 Hawtho. ,
