George MacDonald occupied a major position in the intellectual life of his Victorian contemporaries. This volume brings together all eleven of his shorter fairy stories as well as his essay "The Fantastic Imagination". The subjects are those of traditional fantasy: good and wicked fairies, children embarking on elaborate quests, and journeys into unsettling dreamworlds. Within this familiar imaginative landscape, his children's stories were profoundly experimental, questioning the association of childhood with purity and innocence, and the need to separate fairy tale wonder from adult scepticism and disbelief.ExploreSimilar booksBook lists with this bookWhy do people like this book?TopicsFolkloreFairy talesFairiesGenresComing soon...PreviewBookshop.orgAmazonFinderByEmma Bull,

When Elisa saw her own face she was horrified tofind it so brown and ugly. But as soon as she wet her slenderhand, and rubbed her brow and her eyes, her fair skin showedagain. Then she laid aside her clothes and plunged into the freshwater. In all the world there was no King's daughter as lovely asElisa. When she had dressed herself and plaited her long hair,she went to the sparkling spring and drank from the hollow of herhand. She wandered deeper into the woods without knowing whithershe went. She thought of her brothers, and she thought of thegood Lord, who she knew would not forsake her. He lets the wildcrab apples grow to feed the hungry, and he led her footsteps toa tree with its branches bent down by the weight of their fruit.Here she had her lunch. After she put props under the heavylimbs, she went on into the depths of the forest. It was so quietthat she heard her own footsteps and every dry leaf that rustledunderfoot. Not a bird was in sight, not a ray of the sun couldget through the big heavy branches, and the tall trees grew soclose together that when she looked straight ahead it seemed asif a solid fence of lofty palings imprisoned her. She had neverknown such solitude.
Ho Hsien-ku is shown as a comely girl sometimes dressed in elaborate robes, but more often wearing over a simple garment the leafy cape and skirt affected by the hsien. A large ladle is her recognized emblem. Its bowl, made of bamboo basketwork, is often filled with several objects associated with Taoist immortality, e.g., the magic fungus4 and peach5; sprigs of bamboo and p. 782 of pine1; and flowers of the narcissus2. The place of the ladle may be taken by the more picturesque long-stalked lotus bloom; and sometimes she holds just a fly-whisk or the basket of wild fruit and herbs gathered for her mother. 2b1af7f3a8
