Title in English: Through a Strange Landscape: Characteristics and Inner Structuring of Fantastic Literature
The best works of fantasy tell stories about our world, about human consciousness and its boundaries. Their shift beyond the limits of the natural world and space-time allows a direct, clearer, and larger perspective. Through symbols, metaphors, and allegory, fantasy tackles universal issues and problems of our world. However, fantasy is a priori criticized as trivial, escapist literature not worthy of the time of a picky reader. As such, it is often relegated to the sidelines and gets only limited feedback. The ambition of this study is therefore to initiate a broader discussion about the phenomenon of fantasy literature and to draw attention to the issue of its reflection.
