Summary
"This critical work explores the role of the portal in fantasy, investigating ways in which magical nexus points, and movement between worlds, are used to illustrate real-world power dynamics. Through an examination of high-low fantasy, fairy tales, literature, and science fiction, the portal is identified as an object (or person) of profound metaphorical and cultural significance"--Provided by publisher
