Navigating the Golden Compass
Religion, Science and Daemonology in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials Trilogy
Edited by Glenn Yeffeth
The His Dark Materials series is an unusual sort of young adult series: one that appeals to adults as much as if not more than to their children, thanks to its richly imagined world and unflinching exploration of life’s greatest questions.
This anthology includes essays ranging from what Dust has in common with drugs to the position of children in contrast to other YA series, to what His Dark Materials has to say about the scientific and religious practices of our modern era.
