Introduction by C. S. Lewis

In October 1857, George MacDonald wrote what he described as a kind of fairy tale, in the hope that it will pay me better than the more evidently serious work. This was Phantastes one of MacDonald?'s most important works; a work which so overwhelmed C. S. Lewis that a few hours after he began reading it he knew he had crossed a great frontier.

The book is about the narrator?'s (Anodos) dream-like adventures in fairyland, where he confronts tree-spirits and the shadow, sojourns to the palace of the fairy queen, and searches for the spirit of the earth. The tale is vintage MacDonald, conveying a profound sadness and a poignant longing for death.

Synopsis:

Anodos enters a dream-like fairyland of tree-spirits and magic, where he searches for the spirit of the Earth
