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.

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.

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