"Without Contraries Is No Progression": Dust as an All-Inclusive, Multifunctional Metaphor in Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials."
Bird, Anne-Marie
Children's Literature in Education, v32 n2 p111-23 Jun 2001
Draws on Milton's "Paradise Lost" and on motifs found within Gnostic mythology and the poetry of William Blake to explore how Philip Pullman reworks the Judeo-Christian myth of the Fall in his trilogy, "His Dark Materials." Finds at its center "Dust": a conventional metaphor for human physicality in which good and evil, and spirit and matter coexist. (SR)
