La bibliographie qui suit est une compilation de
base des principales études sur la fantasy, un
genre qui flirte avec le merveilleux, le conte de fée,
la science-fiction et le fantastique et qui s'est
vraiment démarqué après l'immense succès des
oeuvres de Tolkien, au point même de supplanter
la science-fiction. Le mot n'ayant toujours pas
d'équivalent valable en français, nous avons gardé
le terme "fantasy" désignant des oeuvres
d'imagination se déroulant dans des lieux
imaginaires où la magie est fonctionnelle, où volent
les dragons et rôdent les orcs, les elfes et autres
entités de ces mondes fabuleux. Sauf recoupements
inévitables, cette bibliographie ne recense pas les
études sur le conte populaire, le conte de fée, le
merveilleux, la littérature jeunesse et autres
domaines connexes. Dans certains de ses ouvrages,
notamment allemands et anglo-saxons, le mot est
pris dans un sens très large, incluant les autres
genres de l'imaginaire. Nous avons retenu les
ouvrages où il était question des oeuvres d'au
moins deux écrivains. Pour les études sur les
auteurs individuels (Tolkien, Lord Dunsany, C. S.
Lewis, Pullman, etc) , il y aura un autre hors série
plus tard. Cette bibliographie comprend deux
parties : la littérature & le cinéma
