Meet the Author

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.

Vivid
5 stars By Matthew Poole, Mar 07 2017
I like this story a bit better than Phantastes as I find it more vivid and engaging, though I'd say Phantastes has got a wholesome cottagey kind of quality Lilith doesn't. Felt more of a parallel in Lilith to Narnia as well.
