Review quote

W. H. Auden "George MacDonald is pre-eminently a mythopoeic writer. . . In his power to project his inner life into images, beings, landscapes which are valid for all, he is one of the most remarkable writers of the nineteenth century."C. S. Lewis "What George MacDonald does best is fantasy fantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. And this, in my opinion, he does better than any man."Madeleine L'Engle "Surely George MacDonald is the grandfather of us all all of us who struggle to come to terms with truth through fantasy.""show more
