Description


Follow the young man Anodos on his adventures in fairyland---a quest that requires the surrender of the self and reveals the struggles of the human condition. Written with whimsy yet soulful yearning, MacDonald's classic fantasy greatly influenced writers such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Includes color renditions of Arthur Hughes's original illustrations.

About the Author


George MacDonald (1824 1905) is well known for writing fantasy and fairy tales that have inspired notable authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien, W. H. Auden, Madeleine L Engle, G. K. Chesterton, Elizabeth Yates, Mark Twain and C. S. Lewis. The Scottish author once served as pastor of Trinity Congregational Church, Arundel, and later was also engaged in ministerial work in Manchester. He eventually settled in London and taught at the University of London, and lectured successfully in the United States during 1872 1873. MacDonald was also editor of "Good Words for the Young" for a time."
