9780861714766: The Dharma of Dragons and Daemons: Buddhist Themes in Modern Fantasy
Críticas:

"A timely and valuable contribution to our understanding of the contemporary imagination... Thanks to this new approach, adults who guiltily read works of fantasy can now realize the ethical and cultural worth of their pursuit, and parents will be empowered to use children's reading to guide them to the deepest realms of the spirit and of the imagination."--Joseph O'Leary, professor of English literature at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan

"Loy and Goodhew illuminate non-Buddhist stories to show us how they can speak to us and our children in Buddhist ways."--Sumi Loundon, editor of Blue Jean Buddha: Voices of Young Buddhists

""The Dharma of Dragons and Daemons" is an accessible and inspiring interpretation of some modern fantasy novels and films. The authors convincingly reveal how the myths and stories, the wizards, hobbits and princesses, the expeditions to lands of the dead, bring alive truths of existence in ways that illuminate traditional Buddhist teachings. The book offers a first glimpse from a Buddhist perspective into why many of us find fantasy so enriching and important, and along the way addresses many important questions about the meaning of Buddhist teachings when translated into modern Western terms."--Thomas Jones PhD, co-editor of Urthona, the magazine of Buddhism and the Arts.

"Readers who love fiction and Buddhism will be twice rewarded by The Dharma of Dragons and Daemons. First, because Loy and Goodhew beautifully discuss the buddhadharma in ways immediately relevant for contemporary life and Western practitioners; and, secondly, in the fiction of beloved fantasy authors ranging from Tolkien to Le Guin they reveal how those classic stories achieve the dramatization of ancient spiritual wisdom."--Charles Johnson, National Book Award-winning author of Middle Passage

Descripción Wisdom Publications,U.S., United States, 2004. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In order to live, we need air, water, food, shelter.and stories. This book is about Buddhist stories: not about stories to be found in Buddhism, but about the Buddhism to be found in some of the classics of contemporary fantasy including the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Hayao Miyazaki, Michael Ende, Philip Pullman, and Ursula K. LeGuin. Many books are called groundbreaking, but this one is truly unique and sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in fantasy literature. It employs a Buddhist perspective to appreciate some of the major works of modern fantasy--and uses modern fantasy fiction to elucidate Buddhist teachings. In the tradition of David Loy s cutting-edge presentation of a Buddhist social theory in The Great Awakening, this pioneering work of Buddhist literary analysis, renown scholar David Loy and Linda Goodhew offer ways of reading modern fantasy-genre fiction that illuminate both the stories themselves, and the universal qualities of Buddhist teachings. Authors examined include J.R.R. Tolkien, Philip Pullman (of The Amber Spyglass trilogy, from whose works the word daemon is borrowed in the title), Ursula K. LeGuin, and the anime movie Princess Mononoke. Nº de ref. de la librería BZV9780861714766
