I took a walk on Spaulding's Farm the other afternoon. I saw the settingsun lighting up the opposite side of a stately pine wood. In the great room I mainly spent my time, reading books of science,old as well as new; for the history of the human mind in relation tosupposed knowledge was what most of all interested me. Ptolemy, Dante,the two Bacons, and Boyle were even more to me than Darwin or Maxwell,as so much nearer the vanished van breaking into the dark of ignorance.

Its importance was recognized in its later revival in paperback by Ballantine Books as the fifth volume of the celebrated Ballantine Adult Fantasy series in September 1969. Lilith is considered among the darkest of MacDonald's works. Unusual book, but worth reading. This is one of George MacDonalds later works, but the only one I've read except for "The Princess and the Goblin" books as a child. Introduction by C. S. Lewis Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe, wrote W. H. Auden in his introduction to the 1954 reprint of George MacDonald’s Lilith. Lilith (written for adults, unlike "Princess") is somewhat wandering and psychedelic, but has more plot and better developed characters than I feared it would after the first few chapters.

So infers George MacDonald in Lilith. Well, in part only - for the mansion is a bit dark and decrepit. Incandescent and blazingly truthful, George MacDonald's 1895 fantasy on Life after life, is not just a book, its a portal. To what end that portal leads, I will leave the reader to discover for themself.

Lilith by George MacDonald. Notes and Questions by Dale Nelson. Those who have read MacDonald's classic children's book The Princess and Curdie may remember a similar idea. This study guide is much longer than those for the other books we read this semester. It is not meant to turn anyone off, but as an optional source of possible help as you read Lilith. In that book, the hero can grasp someone's hand, and judge their inner, spiritual state by whether he feels a human hand-or the claw or paw of an animal.

George MacDonald's best-known works are Phantastes, The Princess and the Goblin, At the Back of the North Wind, and Lilith, all fantasy novels, and fairy tales such as "The Light Princess", "The Golden Key", and "The Wise Woman"

Introduction by C. S. Lewis“Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe,” wrote W. H. Auden in his introduction to the 1954 reprint of George MacDonald’s Lilith, which was first published in 1895.It is the story of Mr. Vane, an orphan and heir to a large house -- a house in which he has a vision that leads him through a large old mirror into another world. In chronicling the five trips Mr. Vane makes to this other world, MacDonald hauntingly explores the ultimate mystery of evil.

I have restarted this book several times because there is so much and it is so interesting. Have also bought 4 more copies for my children and a friend. I'm not done sharing this book either. Classic! Warning...the surprise for me was it was freaky until I got used to the imagery. Made Poe look like a pussy-cat. But so much depth!!!!!!

This book is not for everyone, but if you find yourself longing for a mystical place that, at one time, you might have called home, you have something in common with the protagonist of this story. It is not fast paced by today's standards, but I never got bored with it. I would recommend it to the spiritually inclined.

This is the third time I have read this book, and each time I enjoy it more and get a deeper understanding of what it is really about. The first time I bought it for 25 cents at a yard sale, and was attracted to it because of the name (I didn't know back then that Adam was said to have a wife named Lilith, prior to the creation of Eve). I also didn't realize that George MacDonald was such a prolific writer of prose and poetry, mostly on religious themes. At that time my reaction to the book was that it was very strange and weird and I was entranced by it, and I knew that I would read it again when I was more ready for it. My second reading was about 20 years later; I reacted in somewhat the same way as the first time, but realized that there was a greater metaphor behind the story and the characters themselves. In this, my third reading, I saw everything much more clearly, understanding more of the greater meaning in the characters of Mr. Raven, the leopards, the "little ones", the "House of Death", even in the landscapes and the travels of Mr. Vane. I will read "Lilith" at least once or twice more in my life if I am given the time. I highly recommend it for seekers and "wonderers", and all readers whether Christian or of any other religious persuasion---although George MacDonald was a minister, I believe that this wonderful, timeless tale has something for everyone.

Unusual book, but worth reading. This is one of George MacDonalds later works, but the only one I've read except for "The Princess and the Goblin" books as a child. Lilith (written for adults, unlike "Princess") is somewhat wandering and psychedelic, but has more plot and better developed characters than I feared it would after the first few chapters. It's not a long book, and will probably stick in your head a long time after you finish it. It's probably best to know going in that "Lilith" is a figure in Jewish mythology, who was said to have been created as Adam's wife before Eve.

I just got shafted for the third time with a great sounding book published in an unreadable format. It's 8-1/2 x 11" and about 1/4 inch thick with a tiny font crammed onto each page. I do most of my reading on the bus and train and can't follow the text or even keep the book open on a bumpy ride. Book and font size are an important part of the presentation and this one completely misses the boat. I wish Amazon would quit pawning off these ridiculous publications on the unsuspecting reading public. I won't be trying to read it.

Lilith presented as someone to be salvaged by God and loved by God and not hated by men. In this in some ways we can see the fulfillment of the end of enmity and the redemption of mankind as he learns through Lilith that he too is responsible for his own decisions (instead of simply looking to blame the innocent).

A beautifully-told story, bursting with imagination and flights-of-fancy. A classic "fairy tale for adults" and children of all ages. This tale deserves the widest audience. Unforgettable and timeless.
If you're a CS Lewis fan, you need to read this book. I had this book in paperback form some years ago, and lent it to somebody and never got it back. It's just that good. :)

Although the writing's a bit archaic, in a style more akin to Tolkien's LOTR books, it's not an exceptionally hard nor long book to read. MacDonald was a much more solid writer in general than Tolkien (in his early days), and the style lends itself well to the story. Like Lewis, MacDonald used allegory in most, if not all, of his fantasy stories, and this is a great example of that. There's a lot of very complex imagery and symbolism-- most of which I'm sure I can't even comprehend.

Despite deeper meanings, there's still an intriguing story going on, one that's not hard to follow, and exciting to read. It feels like a folktale in some ways, but like deep myth in others. If you're a fan of older myth and folk tales, then you'll really enjoy this.
