Still image from Rings, Kings & Things: Program 1

Introduces fantasy as an important and popular literary genre. Discusses what it is, and identifies three of its common elements: magic, always an important part of the story; myths, these usually form its basic structure; and medievalism, the general time period and setting of most fantasies. Examines "The Lord of the Rings" for illustrations of these three elements. Looks at the qualities of fantasy's hero-types, using King Arthur and Beowulf as heroic examples.

    Kind of 90s, but the content is strong and it is entertaining too.
