Publisher's Description

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."

Special Features
• Full color printing throughout, with beautiful, new color renditions of all 33 of Arthur Hughes’ original illustrations.

Author Bio

George MacDonald (1824–1905) is well known for writing fantasy and fairy tales that have inspired notable authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien, W. H. Auden, Madeleine L’Engle, G. K. Chesterton, Elizabeth Yates, Mark Twain and C. S. Lewis. The Scottish author once served as pastor of Trinity Congregational Church, Arundel, and later was also engaged in ministerial work in Manchester. He eventually settled in London and taught at the University of London, and lectured successfully in the United States during 1872–1873. MacDonald was also editor of Good Words for the Young for a time.

    C.S. Lewis was greatly influenced by George MacDonald and his books, especially Phantastes. I myself who have been greatly influenced by C.S. Lewis was quite excited to read various George MacDonald books, including Phantastes. Phantastes is truly a remarkable story. Anodos's journey is much like our own life journeys and choices we make along the way that help or hinder us. It is very helpful to learn from Anodos's experiences. I highly recommend this book.
