Overview

Introduction by C. S. Lewis

"Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe," wrote W. H. Auden in his introduction to the 1954 reprint of George MacDonald’s Lilith, which was first published in 1895.

It is the story of Mr. Vane, an orphan and heir to a large house—a house in which he has a vision that leads him through a large old mirror into another world. In chronicling the five trips Mr. Vane makes to this other world, MacDonald hauntingly explores the ultimate mystery of evil.

A deep profound story of spiritual significance. MacDonald never wrote without purpose; it is beautifully done and interesting to read. I didn't understand this (and Phanteses) until I was older, although I first read it when I was about twelve years old. MacDonald is a unique writer of myth as well as theology etc. with a vivid imagination; he is my favorite writer.

As a long time fan of Rev. MacDonald, I have read all of his fantasy novels. (Except Castle Warlock, which is awfully hard to find for under $50.) Of all of his novels and short stories, LILITH is the best. Lilith brings together all of the elements of writing that Rev. MacDoanld was such a master of: Charachter, Imagery, Suspence, Plot, Allegory, Setting. I recomment this book and other George MacDonald books to every reader of fantasy. Read his works and you will know from whince Tolkein and Lewis's ideas came!
