This book shows how the fantasy tradition culminating in Pullman’s His Dark Materials inherits the Romantic quest to transpose spiritual and moral values, once the prerogrative of organized religion, into new myths. Wary both of escapist fantasy and ‘grand narratives’, it explores how stories can generate a new vision.The myth which is expressed through the metaphor always carries a truth that is deeper than the obvious story, a truth that may be transcendent.

Ideas, principles, morals, ethical beliefs, and facts expressed by the two stories may sometimes conflict with one another, but that doesn't matter when it happens because each story has its own.As nouns the difference between myth and truth is that myth is a traditional story which embodies a belief regarding some fact or phenomenon of experience, and in which often the forces of nature and of the soul are personified; a sacred narrative regarding a god, a hero, the origin of the world or of a people, etc while truth is the state or quality of being true to someone or something.
