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.… (mehr)

I’ve always been curious about George MacDonald’s works, but in retrospect, this probably wasn’t the greatest first book to pick up by him. Thankfully, I was able to listen to it in audio—otherwise, I would have never finished the story! Overall, I found this book somewhat confusing to understand, as it seemed like we were always jumping around in this fairy/fantasy world doing random things. The descriptions were beautiful, and the imaginative location was interesting to explore, but the story itself didn’t tie together very well for me. I’m sure there were allegorical portions of the book, but figuring out what they are is a bit beyond me. Not a great first read, but I’m looking forward to trying out some of his other works, and maybe one day I’ll come back to this one and understand its purpose better! ( )

this early book of fantasy begins well, with one of the best descriptions of being in a dream ever written. It falls off towards the end as it morphs into a sermon on the morality of self sacrifice. Nonetheless, the strain begun here runs to Morris, then Eddison and Cabell, and, at last, to Tolkien. A very good read, unless you are a fantasist of violence, complete and total. ( )

This is such a whimsical book. The tone and atmosphere feel like a real life fairy-tale. The story is slow and steady, and a bit too meandering in the middle, but still delightful to read. I could have done without quite so many "singing" poems, not to say they all should be cut out, but I didn't feel that they all were necessary to the story. ( )

I liked a couple of McDonald's fantasies for kids, so I thought I'd try one aimed at an older audience. About six or so chapters in, I was pretty much done. After Dostoyevsky's huge paragraphs, I didn't really want more huge paragraphs--- especially of the sentimentalist vein. Soooo I'll pick this one up again later, hopefully.

One of my favorite books, but not one of the best books I’ve read by any objective measure; its language is awkward even considering its age, its poems can plod, and it wanders into innumerable diversions. But this book was fundamentally formative for my teenaged self and I love it in its weird, genuine, imaginative way. Each chapter begins with a quote from another work, and a lot of those have stuck with me through the years. For instance: “When bale is highest, boote is nighest” (which means, roughly, “help is nearest when things are worst”). Or this portion of the Ballad of Sir Andrew Barton::

“‘Fight on, my men!’, Sir Andrew says,
“A little I’m hurt but yet not slain!
I’ll but lie down and bleed awhile
And then I’ll rise and fight again!”

"Fight on, my men, Sir Andrew sayes,

A little Ime hurt, but yett not slaine,

Ile but lye downe and bleede awhile,

And then Ile rise and fight againe."

Ballad of Sir Andrew Barton
In good sooth, my masters, this is no door. Yet is it a little window, that looketh upon a great world.

Afterwards I learned, that the best way to manage some kinds of painful thoughts, is to dare them to do their worst; to let them lie and gnaw at your heart till they are tired; and you find you still have a residue of life they cannot kill.
