Światy i przyroda w literaturze fantasy - na podstawie utworów Tolkiena i Sapkowskiego
The study investigates the picture of the worlds created by Tolkien and Sapkowski in their prose. The idea of the study is to show the differences and similarites between the prose of John R. R. Tolkien, the author who created fantasy genre, and the prose of Andrzej Sapkowski, one of the greatest Polish fantasy writers, who wrote his books fifty years after Tolkien. The study shows the integrity of elements taken from the real world and these created by the authors. Sapkowski implements his prose with the elements of the worlds created by Tolkien. Nevertheless, Sapkowski himself introduces new races, plants, and other elements into his worlds. The following study draws upon a conclusion that fantasy literature is constantly evolving but still, every piece of fantasy literature, to a certain extent, is based on this of Tolkien.
