high fantasy n. 1971 E. Cameron High Fantasy: ‘A Wizard of Earthsea’ in Horn Book (vol. 42, no. 2) Apr. 130 It is not in the least surprising that Ursula Le Guin should have written, in A Wizard of Earthsea, a work which is a noble example of the term ‘high fantasy’. Of this term she has said, ‘I think “High Fantasy” a beautiful phrase. It summarizes, for me, what I value most in an imaginative work: the fact that the author takes absolutely seriously the world and the people which he has created…that he plays his game with all his skill, and all his art, and all his heart. When he does that, the fantasy game becomes one of the High Games men play.’
