Hardwick, Paul
Children's Literature in Education, v31 n1 p23-30 Mar 2000
Discusses connecting with the Middle Ages in adolescent fiction. Discusses how, in "The Owl Service," Garner addresses a relationship between adolescence in the late twentieth century and an aspect of the past--specifically the Middle Ages. Considers how "The Owl Service" is a story energized by myth, concerning the participation of successive generations in mythic patterns. (SC)
