One of the first great works of nineteenth-century fantasy fiction, Phantastes inspired many of the great Christian and fantasy authors of the twentieth century. A fairy tale for adults, it is the captivating story of a wealthy young man who takes an unplanned journey into a fantastic nether world. Led by an enchanting sprite (discovered inside an old desk once owned by his deceased father), he meets a diverse cast of characters, among them a fairy queen, as well as sinister figures who threaten his spiritual well-being.
Outstanding for its imaginative characters, vivid action, and subtle yet powerful moral messages, this book, first published 100 years ago, earned MacDonald recognition as "The Grandfather of Modern Fantasy," and a tribute from W. H. Auden as "one of the most remarkable writers of the 19th century." Of this work, C. S. Lewis wrote, "It will baptize your imagination."
Enhanced with 14 illustrations by Pre-Raphaelite artist Arthur Hughes, Phantastes offers readers an enlightening experience and a memorable literary journey.
