Lilith: Large Print

Lilith: Large Print

by George MacDonald

Overview

"Equal if not superior to the best of Poe", raved poet W. H. Auden about this classic Victorian novel. A fantasy novel for adults that's rich with symbolism and suspense, and considered to be one of the most important visionary novels of the nineteenth century. A recent heir to his parents' English country manor, Mr. Vane has been troubled by visions of an elderly gentleman in his library. Curious, he follows the old man through a passageway and discovers a dusty mirror that leads him on a spiritual journey into another world. As he travels through time in scenes that range from the beautiful to the grotesque, he encounters a series of mysteries that reveal a deeper reality. Is Vane dreaming ... or going mad? With classic themes of good and evil, identity and free will, suffering and salvation, Lilith is a thought-provoking, sometimes puzzling, allegory that will challenge your intellect and stay with you long after the last page is turned.
