Transcript THURSDAY, 2 - 3:30 P.M. by one Prime mover and First Agent: love. The characters who love experience the expansion and multiform transformation of matter, that is, a universe full of greater possibilities. The characters who either refuse love, mistake it, or never encounter it live in a maddening world of fixed motion and obsessive time. While the narrator's name often remains the same from story to story, the farcical, reduced language in stories without love lacks the poignant, lyrical quality of those that center on love, indicating that the realities governing affective existence permeate the domain of fantasy. Brian O'Laughlin, Loyola University. "The Nonexistent Knight: Calvino's Existential Fantasy." In Calvino's The Nonexistent Knight the author jibes at the philosophical meaning of essence and existence via an existential fairytale concerning an empty suit of armor masquerading as a real man. FANTASY IN THE WORKS OF ROGER ZELAZNY Room 112 Chair: Carl B. Yoke, Kent State University. Joseph Francavilla, University of Buffalo. "These Immortals: Another View of Immortality in Roger Zelazny's Fiction." Roger Zelazny departs in his treatment of immortality from a very pervasive dystopian tradition which includes the key formulations involving spirits of the dead, the Lotus-Eaters, and the struldbrugs in The Odyssey and Gulliver's Travels. Zelazny's immortal is a divine, Promethean figure who uses his extended lifetime to protect and sacrifice for the people and things he cherishes, and to erase his "classical" flaws in the process of redefining his identity. Zelazny's view of immortality is generally positive without being Utopian or completely unambivalent. Joseph Sanders, Lakeland Community College, Mentor, Ohio. "Zelazny's Dilvish Series." Although a relatively minor part of Zelazny's work, the Dilvish series is not negligible. In particular, since the stories were such a long- term project, study of them shows how Zelazny's writing has matured over the years while his interests have remained constant. Zelazny's style has become more informal or mixed in diction, while his organization appears looser. At the same time, Zelazny demonstrates a continued distrust of immutable verities, a wry uneasiness in the presence of "pure" motives, and a chastened acceptance of the need to improvise constantly if one is to reach some humanly acceptable satisfaction. Gregory M. Shreve, Kent State University. "Intimate Circuits: Man-Computer Communion in Coils." Coils is a love story, about love between man and woman, and man and machine. Ttie central premise presented by Saberhagen and Zelazny is that the basis of love is communion, a joining of intellect and spirit. This communion is possible between man and intelligent machine if man is capable of surpassing communication and entering a more intimate form of union, the emotional. Through his psychic abilities the protagonist establishes a link with a central machine consciousness. His communion with this entity is an exploration of the emotional forms that man and intelligent machine may establish share. FANTASY AND PSYCHE Room 116 Chair: Jo M. Turk, Florida Atlantic University. David Halperin, M.D., New York City. "Richard Dadd: The Artist as Inpatient." The career of Richard Dadd is as notable for its artistic achievement as for its tragedy. A promising artist in Victorian England, he murdered his father during a psychotic episode. Confined to Bedlam for the rest of his life, he then created a series of visionary and fantastic paintings, among them his acknowledged masterpiece, The Fairy Fellar's Master Stroke. This paper will attempt an explication of this extraordinary work within the framework of a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic understanding of Dadd's life. In addition, the issue of Dadd's hospitalization within the context of both Victorian and modern perspectives on hospitalization and institutionalization will be discussed. Paul Gaston, Southern Illinois University. "Doorways to Fantasy in Davies' 'Deptford Trilogy' ." Although the novels which comprise Robertson Davies' "Deptford Trilogy" do not belong to the genre of fantasy writing, they are concerned throughout with means of access to fantasy. As each major character must face the threats which fantasy can pose, so each requires the restorative forces which fantasy can provide. But doorways to fantasy are not easily discovered. And those which give access to its authentic force may well open onto long, obscure corridors, with no clear end in sight. "THE YELLOW PERIL" IN SCIQJCE FICTION Room 118 William F. Vfti and Vincent Miranda. Discussion: How the Image of the Asian in American Science Fiction Contributes to Racial Discrimination. Names of further panel participants not available at press time. 12
