The Circle of the Imagination: George MacDonald's Phantastes and Lilith This article grew out of a curiosity as to why, after decades of writing novels of real life, fairy tales for children, poems and sermons, George MacDonald returned to the peculiar mode of his early romance Phantastes () in his late work Lilith ().

Besides PHANTASTES, I've read THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN, THE PRINCESS AND CURDIE, LILITH, and two or three of his Scottish novels that had been homogenized into modern English.

My favorite, be far, was LILITH, easily MacDonald's darkest and most profound work. MacDonald's Lilith, for instance, played a big role on how certain characters and plots would come about in books such as: Till We Phantastes. Lewis had heretofore been on a search for joy.

The cover is one of the darkest in the series to date. One could point to some of the illustrations in this edition of Phantastes or, more so, to the Dover book that reprints Walter Crane’s decorations for Spenser’s Faerie Queene (a work close in spirit to Phantastes).

Like Phantastes, Lilith also influenced C. Lewis, and in his book The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, he pays tribute to MacDonald by making Lilith a primary ancestor of the White Witch.

What he does best is fantasy—fantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. An enchanting early masterpiece of fantasy fiction, Phantastes tells the story of a young man's journey to, and adventures in, a fairy tale netherworld.

Outstanding for its imaginative characters, vivid action, and subtle yet powerful moral messages, this is the book that earned MacDonald recognition as "The Grandfather of Modern Fantasy.". This book took me ages to finish. I picked it up towards the end of May, but only finished it on the 4th of August.

I wanted to read this book because C.S. Lewis, one of my favourite authors of all time, wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his 'master'. .Find Phantastes and Lilith by MacDonald at over 30 bookstores. Buy, rent or sell.
