Product description 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. Amazon.com Review " Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe," the great 20th-century poet W.H. Auden said of this novel, 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 (inhabiting a universe with the early Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, and Oscar Wilde--not to mention Thomas Hardy), this is the story of the aptly named Mr. Vane, his magical house, and the journeys into another world into which it leads him. 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. --Doug Thorpe About the Author (1824-1905) The great nineteenth-century innovator ofmodern fantasy, whose works influenced C. S. Lewis, J. R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams. "I do not write forchildren," MacDonald once said, "but for the childlike,whether of five, or fifty, or seventy-five."
