W.H. Auden said of this novel, "Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe," the great 20th-century poet. But the comparison only begins to touch on the richness, density, and wonder of this late 19th-century adult fantasy novel. First published in 1895 this is the story of the aptly named Mr. Vane, his magical house, and the journeys into another world.

Overview

W.H. Auden said of this novel, "Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe," the great 20th-century poet. But the comparison only begins to touch on the richness, density, and wonder of this late 19th-century adult fantasy novel. First published in 1895 this is the story of the aptly named Mr. Vane, his magical house, and the journeys into another world. Meeting up with one mystery after another, including Adam and Eve themselves, he slowly but surely explores the mystery of the human fall from grace, and of our redemption. Instructed into the ways of seeing the deeper realities of this world--seeing, in a sense, by the light of the spirit--the reader and Mr. Vane both sense that MacDonald writes from his own deep experience of radiance, from a bliss so profound that death's darkness itself is utterly eclipsed in its light.
