Synopses & Reviews
A Victorian Fantasy. Lilith, MacDonald's last fantasy work powerfully suggests dark self discoveries in another world. Redemption is difficult to the self purposed soul. Complex symbolism.
A fantasy novel for adults, Lilith is the story of the aptly named Mr. Vane, his magical house, and the journeys into another world into which it leads him. Encountering one mystery after another, he explores the mystery of humanity's fall from grace--and of their 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 senses 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. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
