The Road to the Dark Tower: Exploring Stephen King’s Magnum Opus
AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO THE DARK TOWER SERIES—INCLUDING BOOK-BY-BOOK ANALYSIS AND INSIGHT INTO STEPHEN KING’S CREATIVE PROCESS.
In 1970, Stephen King embarked on what would become the crowning achievement in his literary career-the Dark Tower. The seven-volume series, written and published over a period of 30 years, was inspired by Robert Browning’s poem “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” as well as J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, and the spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone.
