Good and Evil in Popular Children's Fantasy Fiction: How Archetypes Become Stereotypes That Cultivate the Next Generation of "Sun" Readers.
Robinson, C. Neil
English in Education, v37 n2 p29-36 Sum 2003
Considers how the depiction of good and evil as discernibly polarized opposites in the most popular of juvenile fantasy texts cultivates a perception in children that the real world is similarly organized. Proposes that the dichotomized view of good and evil that these texts promote, rather than cultivating a broad educated outlook, prepares readers more adequately for the simplistic polarities of the tabloid press.
