Ever Yours CD

Ever Yours is a CD-ROM of the complete works of George MacDonald in .rtf (Word compatible) and .pdf format. MacDonald generally worked on three or four books at a time, producing about fifty books in a forty-year period. This CD contains his complete works, plus Louisa MacDonald´s stage adaptation of Pilgrim´s Progress II. The works are arranged chronologically, partly to invite comparisons between the books written close to one another and also to give a perspective of his unfading genius. From Phantastes, a Faerie Romance in 1858, to his crowning achievement, Lilith, a Romance in 1895, MacDonald´s faith and imagination remained strong. A handful of his writings are considered masterpieces and classics, but all his books convey a unique and consistent vision of the harmony of creation and the love of the Creator.

Informing the Inklings

Magdalen College, where C.S. Lewis taught in Oxford, was an appropriate site for the “Informing the Inklings” conference hosted by the George MacDonald Society. Participants explored how MacDonald and fellow literary figures such as S.T. Coleridge, Lewis Carroll, Charles Kingsley, and Andrew Lang paved the way for 20th century fantasists such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. The twelve essays collected in this book examine this rich lineage of mythmakers. Contributors include Stephen Prickett, Malcolm Guite, Trevor Hart, and Jean Webb as well as other Inklings experts. Like the authors they write about, these scholars believe imaginative fiction has the power to enrich and even change our lives.

Shadows and Chivalry: C. S. Lewis and George MacDonald on Suffering, Evil and Goodness - By Jeff McInnis

SHADOWS AND CHIVALRY studies the influence of George MacDonald, a nineteenth-century Scottish novelist and fantasy writer, upon one of the most influential writers of modern times, C. S. Lewis - the creator of Narnia, literary critic, and best-selling apologist. While other books, quoting Lewis himself, have only mentioned the fact that Lewis called MacDonald his "master," and that MacDonald's Phantastes helped "baptize" Lewis's imagination, this study attempts to trace the overall effect of MacDonald's work on Lewis's thought and imagination. Without ever ceasing to be a story of one man's influence upon another, the study also serves as an exploration of each writer's thought on, and literary visions of, good and evil. Lastly, using the metaphor of chivalry, McInnis looks at what Lewis and MacDonald believed to be greater than either suffering or hell: the severe and tender Love who longs to save.

George MacDonald experts are increasingly evaluating his entire corpus within the nineteenth century context. This volume provides further evidence that MacDonald will eventually emerge from the restrictive and somewhat misleading reputation of being C.S. Lewis' spiritual "master."
