This publication makes connections among mythopoeic fantasy--works that have interaction the numinous--and the serious apparatuses of ecocriticism and posthumanism. Drawing from the tips of Rudolf Otto within the notion of the Holy, mythopoeic fable is a way of subverting normative modes of notion to either stumble upon the numinous and to problem the perceptions of the wildlife. starting with S.T. Coleridge's theories of the mind's eye as embodied within the Rime of the traditional Mariner, the publication strikes directly to discover typical mythopoeic fantasists corresponding to George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien. Taking a step open air those males, fairly inspired by way of Christianity, the concluding chapters speak about Algernon Blackwood and Ursula Le Guin, whose works evoke the numinous with no particularly Christian worldview.
