Light Princess by George MacDonald

Book Description

George MacDonald (1824-1905), the great nineteenth-century innovator of modern fantasy, influenced not only C. S. Lewis, but also such literary masters as Charles Williams and J. R. R. Tolkien. Though his longer fairy tales, "Lilith" and "Phantastes" are particularly famous, much of MacDonald's best fantasy writing is found in his shorter stories. In this volume, editor Glenn Sadler has compiled some of MacDonald's finest short works - marvellous fairy tales and stories certain to delight readers familiar with MacDonald and those about to meet him for the first time.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » McKinley has the grace to suggest that "Any reader who is pleased. . .by this book should read the original." So they should; though this edition is shorter by half, it is no less difficult since she has retained MacDonald's comic, ironic, but elaborate prose (pruning it skillfully, to be sure). Treherne's flamboyantly lavish pen-and-watercolors will surely attract readers, so there is probably a place for this edition in our impatient, visually-oriented world. But the edition of choice for this classic spoof about a princess who lacks gravity in every sense is still the unabridged one, unobtrusively illustrated by Maurice Sendak with love and sensitivity as well as humor. (Kirkus Reviews)
