Publisher's Description

George MacDonald (1824-1905), the great nineteenth-century innovator of modern fantasy, influenced not only C. S. Lewis but also such literary masters as Charles Williams and J. R. R. Tolkien. Though his longer fairy tales Lilith and Phantastes are particularly famous, much of MacDonald’s best fantasy writing is found in his shorter stories. In this volume editor Glenn Sadler has compiled some of MacDonald’s finest short works — marvelous fairy tales and stories certain to delight readers familiar with MacDonald and those about to meet him for the first time.

Author Bio

(1824-1905) The great nineteenth-century innovator ofmodern fantasy, whose works influenced C. S. Lewis, J. R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. "I do not write forchildren," MacDonald once said, "but for the childlike,whether of five, or fifty, or seventy-five."

Editorial Reviews

W. H. Auden
"George MacDonald is pre-eminently a mythopoeic writer. . . In his power to project his inner life into images, beings, landscapes which are valid for all, he is one of the most remarkable writers of the nineteenth century."

C. S. Lewis
"What George MacDonald does best is fantasy — fantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. And this, in my opinion, he does better than any man."

Madeleine L'Engle
"Surely George MacDonald is the grandfather of us all — all of us who struggle to come to terms with truth through fantasy."

    MacDonald was C. S. Lewis's spiritual mentor, even though they did not know each other. He was at his best when writing stories for children. These tales, the one titled and the others in this collection, are eye-opening events for all ages.

    Although allegorical, no story in this collection suffers from the heavy hand familiar to anyone who has read Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. Instead, MacDonald's wry sense of humor informs his writing, making it enjoyable to all who read his stories.

    A great book but do not stop at this one. MacDonald's other stories are worth reading, particularly, Lilith.

    This book has been truly inspiring. The Wise Woman will teach you about yourself and show you what you don't like, that is; if you are open to it. Every Christian needs to contemplate the message George MacDonald is teaching us in this beautiful hidden language. Ask the Holy Spirit, I am sure He will show you in your heart.
