The first two essays make use of individual works or writers to raise general problems about the thematics of fantasy. John Gerlach considers the possibility both that the creation of fantasy may depend on certain themes and that these themes may have been "exhausted," may have lost their generative power. Through detailed analysis of a single story, García Márquez's "Very Old Man with Enormous Wings," a modern work which seems to have as its theme the impotence of fantastic themes themselves, Gerlach concludes that fantasy, if viewed as a linguistic process rather than as the result of that process, in fact has endless resources, becomes the "wings," or higher theme of language itself.
S. Lewis was ambivalent, rather than George Macdonald, who justifies the odd principle as to literary fantasy that Lewis brought forth on behalf of Macdonald: The texture of his writing as a whole is undistinguished, at times fumbling. . But this does not dispose of him even for the literary critic. What he does best is fantasyfantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. . It begins to look as if there were an art, or a gift, which criticism has largely ignored. It may even be one of the greatest arts; for it produces works which give us (at the first meeting) as much delight and (on prolonged acquaintance) as much wisdom and strength as the works of the greatest poets.
But I cannot effect such a division without first expounding and also criticizing the Freudian account of the two principles. Though Freud assigns temporal priority to the pleasure/pain principle, I will discuss the reality principle first, precisely because of its high irrelevance to any theory of fantasy. Freud's principle of reality modifies, dominates and regulates the pleasure/pain principle, and so compels the human urges for fulfillment to go by detours and postponements, obstacles set by the external universe and by society.
