The Reality, Mythology, and Fantasies of Unicorns
Unicorns aren’t only for little girls. If you read The Reality, Mythology, and Fantasies of Unicorns by W.B.J. Williams, you’ll learn that the idea of unicorns has been around for a very long time and has been written about by men and women alike. Williams has presented a literary piece that explains nearly everything you could want to know about unicorns, starting with their origin and how the original idea of them compares to our fantasy now.
Within the pages, two myths from history are explained: the endless battle between the lion and the unicorn and the unicorn’s horn. What follows concerns how unicorns are portrayed in art and literature. Each chapter reveals information about the mythical yet possibly real creature known as the unicorn from multiple sources and spanning history.
If the reader is aware that this book is more information than a fictional story, they will get a lot out of it. The reader should be prepared to read a book similar to a research paper, albeit a very well-written one. I found much of the information enlightening, especially when it drew from many persuasive sources from history.
