Description

"The Rough Guide to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials" explores the beguiling world of Philip Pullman's classic trilogy. The guide covers Pullman's inspiration from science and literature, including string theory, climate change and dark matter, Milton, Blake and fantasy fiction. The Story and characters are unraveled with insight into the key mysteries and events and how everyone from Lyra Belacqua to the golden monkey demon fit in to the author's grand design. You'll find everything from the story behind the filming and cast of the first "His Dark Materials" film, The Golden Compass to how the Victorian era shaped Pullman's imagination, with a tour of Oxford's Exeter College, Geneva (home of the Magisterium), Venice (Cittagazze), and of course where to catch the Northern Lights. Pullman shares his views on religion, and discover what organised religion has to say about his books. Cut threw the darkness and step into another universe with "The Rough Guide to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials".
