Charles Butler's picture

Charles Butler

UK flag (1963 - )

Charles Butler is the author of several fantasies for children. He also teaches English literature at the University of the West of England. In Four British Fantasists, he surveys juvenile fantasy through the lens of his professional scholarship, in a detailed analysis of the work of four acclaimed modern writers. He has chosen Alan Garner, Diana Wynne Jones, Susan Cooper and Penelope Lively as his subjects, identifying them -- with good reason -- as shining examples of the modern Golden Age of children's fantasy: inheritors of the traditions of both Edith Nesbit and J R R Tolkien.
