Fantasy Fiction: Pure-escapist Literature

Fantasy fiction is an interesting genre to comprehend. I would personally say that it is really 'pure-escapist literature'; something that ultimately helps us to rediscover the world with open eyes, open arms, and of course an open mind.

In these modern times, we all have access to technology, along with knowledge in abundance, right at our very fingertips. Because of this, we often lack a sense of discovery, wonder and imagination. It is fantasy literature and film which seeks to reaffirm this, to enlighten us to the possibility that anything is possible, any dream is possible.

If I was asked to name my favourite fantasy novel as an adult, I would have to say that it is a close-call between The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks, Lord of The Rings by J.R.R Tolkein (of course) and, most recently, A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Each of Martin's large cast of characters is rich and believable, and it's actually extremely difficult not to become completely lost in all the action from the very first page!

When it comes to my favourite fantasy films, again we have Lord of The Rings, inevitably Harry Potter and, most recently, I have to say that The Hunger Games is most enjoyable. I must also mention the recent revival of the fairy-tale stories, for these remakes have been taken to a much darker place than the animated Disney versions I grew up with, and are definitely worth a watch.

When it comes to fantasy fiction and the supernatural, I guess what it really teaches us is to always believe in ourselves and continue to hope that good things will happen to good people, an encouraging theory in a world of economic crises and turmoil.

Private Member's Club, Home House of Portman Square, are also keen enthusiasts of this type of literature and are soon to put on an event called 'Once Upon a Time'. From Beatrix Potter to Roald Dahl, Hans Christian Anderson to CS Lewis and JK Rowling... enter the magical pages of every story, fable, old wives' tale and fictional tale you have ever read... Dress to impress and choose your favourite character from any story ever written... Its set to be a truly fantastical party!
