Middle-Class Fantasy

Most fantasy books center around royalty and nobility, at least in part. These books focus on the point-of-view of middle-class characters: merchants, artisans, sailors, soldiers, shopkeepers and everyone else. Urban fantasy books don't really belong on this list, since most modern characters are middle-class.

message 1: by Hazel (new)

Hazel Gold The Hobbit should definitely not be listed here. "The king under the mountain" is not particularly middle class. Dragonlance also, for one thing Laurana is a princess. I'd say the same for Stardust, although I'm not that familiar with it.


message 2: by Mary (new)

Mary Catelli The Hobbit is told from the point of view of the definitely middle class hobbit. Laurana is only one character in Dragonlance, and not even point of view much. Stardust, the main character was raised middle class -- or working class -- and his status does not change until near the very end.
