Mabon (Autumn Equinox) [Sep. 21st, 2003|02:49 pm]
Miss Von Trapp
I'm going to a party this evening with some fellow Wiccans to celebrate Mabon. Yay!!

Updated a page of my .co.uk yesterday so that there is now a Current Projects page...

Heres those George MacDonald links for eldritch00 :
My favourite stories :

http://www.johannesen.com/UncleCornelius.htm

All: http://www.johannesen.com/OnlineGMD.htm

The two novels I have read are:

Phantastes- Original Printing 1905 Edition with the black and white illustrations by Arthur Hughes.

A Victorian-Era Fantasy. MacDonald's first faery romance awakens fairy land adventures to a young man coming of age 21. Battles with fear, disobedience, romance stir his need for the divine.

and...

Lilith A and Lilith Published Edition (A Duplex)- Reprinted from the1890 Original Manuscript and the1896 Published Edition

A Victorian Fantasy. Lilith, MacDonald's last fantasy work powerfully suggests dark self discoveries in another world. Redemption is difficult to the self purposed soul. Complex symbolism.

About George MacDonald
http://www.johannesen.com/GMD.htm

George MacDonald (1824-1905) was one of my favourite authors as a young girl...he predates CS Lewis, and I read his books when I was about 10 or so, having finished the Complete Chronicles of Narnia, That Hideous Strength etc etc from my grandfather's bookshelf...

Although his writing (as does CS Lewis) has an undercurrent of christian doctrine throughout, his writing is so fantastic that it must not be dismissed on this account.

*grin*

Well, I'm off...

You're a Victorian-era corset. How refined.
