Why read fantasy?

Such a difficult question, believe it or not. There are a multitude of reasons and I'm discovering this as I'm working on a paper that will place Fantasy within a cultural historical frame.

But there weren't any particular authors, come to think of it, that decisively influenced me one way or the other. Part of the reason might be because I consider certain works to be exactly the same as fantasies in scope, terminology, and impact, yet aren't labelled as much by most. view post
