The story of a young man, Anodos, and his adventures in fairyland, which ultimately reveal the human condition.
-Publisher



The classic fantasy that influenced C. S. Lewis and Tolkien, considered one of George MacDonald’s most important works, is the story of the young man, Anodos, and his adventures in fairyland which ultimately reveal the human condition. “I write, not for children,” wrote George MacDonald, “but for the child-like, whether they be of five, or fifty, or seventy-five.” All-at-once written with an innocent whimsy and soulful yearning, the heart of Anodos’ journey through fairyland reveals a spiritual quest that requires a surrender of the self. MacDonald’s fantasy novel as well as his other works have had major influence on many authors who considered him their mentor:


C. S. Lewis said, “I have never concealed the fact that I regarded him as my master; indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him.”


J. R. R. Tolkien called his fairy tales “stories of power and beauty.”


Madeleine L’Engle said, “Surely, George MacDonald is the grandfather of us all—all of us who struggle to come to terms with truth through fantasy.”

George MacDonald

George MacDonald (1824-1905), Scottish poet, preacher, and novelist was one of the most original and influential writers of Victorian Britain. He wrote over 50 books with millions of copies sold, and he was one of the most popular authors of the day on both sides of the Atlantic. Drawn to the pulpit early, MacDonald eventually left to pursue his writing. Numbered among Dickens, Trollope, and other giants of the age as a novelist, MacDonald ended his career with over 50 books ranging from fantastical literature, to children's stories, to critical essays, and numerous novels. In addition to writing, MacDonald lectured extensively. MacDonald's fiction combined the man's immense spiritual understanding with his innate storytelling ability. His works have influenced writers like C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and many others.- Publisher.
