George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian clergyman. After attending the University of Aberdeen, MacDonald became a minister and turned to writing "adult fantasy" with a strong Christian theme. MacDonald's works inspired later generations of poets and fantasy writers, including W. H. Auden, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, E. Nesbit and Madeleine L'Engle.
