    About "George MacDonald"

      • George MacDonald

        George MacDonald was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister.Known particularly for his poignant fairy tales and fantasy novels, George MacDonald inspired many authors, such as G.K Chesterton, W H Auden, J.R.R Tolkien, C S Lewis, and Madeleine L Engle Lewis that wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his master Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train station bookstall, I began to read A few hours later, said Lewis, I knew that I had crossed a great frontier G K Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had made a difference to my whole existence Elizabeth Yates wrote of Sir Gibbie, It moved me the way books did when, as a child, the great gates of literature began to open and first encounters with noble thoughts and utterances were unspeakably thrilling Even Mark Twain, who initially disliked MacDonald, became friends with him, and there is some evidence that Twain was influenced by MacDonald.For information, please see enpedia wiki George_M

    2. The Wise Woman - great story of two spoiled girls and one woman bringing in some discipline. More interestingly the wise woman represents God, and the whole story is filled with imagery.
