Introduction by C. S. Lewis
Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe, wrote W. H. Auden in his introduction to the 1954 reprint of George MacDonald s Lilith, which was first published in 1895.
It is the story of Mr. Vane, an orphan and heir to a large house -- a house in which he has a vision that leads him through a large old mirror into another world. In chronicling the five trips Mr. Vane makes to this other world, MacDonald hauntingly explores the ultimate mystery of evil.
