Story as a Bridge to Transformation: The Way beyond Death in Philip Pullman's "The Amber Spyglass."
Lenz, Millicent
Children's Literature in Education, v34 n1 p47-55 Mar 2003
Explains that in "The Amber Spyglass," Philip Pullman extends the psychological depth of literature for young readers by presenting in palpable terms a confrontation with death met by the human capacity for dealing creatively, through story, with personal mortality. Contends that Pullman's portrayal of the power of storytelling is placed within the context of the Platonic tradition and neo-Platonic, 19th-century Romanticism. (PM)
