About the Author

George MacDonald (1824–1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister known for his contributions to fantasy literature and his profound influence on writers such as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and W.H. Auden. MacDonald's use of fantasy as a medium for exploring deep spiritual and moral themes was pioneering. His work blended elements of folklore and myth with Christian allegory, creating narratives that resonated with both children and adults. A master of the fairy tale and fantasy genres, MacDonald's notable works include 'Phantastes' (1858) and 'The Princess and the Goblin' (1872), which are still celebrated for their imagination and spiritual depth. His collection of essays 'A Dish of Orts: Chiefly Papers on the Imagination, and on Shakespeare' (1893) reflects his literary theory and criticism, underscoring the importance he placed on the imagination as a spiritual and artistic faculty. MacDonald's approach to Shakespeare is also noteworthy, showcasing his reverence for the Bard and a sophisticated understanding of dramatic art. Regarded as a literary forerunner to modern fantasy, George MacDonald's legacy is evident in the works of many who regarded him as a master mentor in the art of mythopoeic storytelling.
