Lilith A Romance review í 3 Lilith is a story concerning the nature of life death and salvationAfter he followed the old man through the mirror nothing in his life was ever right again It was a special mirror an As my brother accurately described it it starts out as a sort of Christian acid tripAlice in Wonderland type experience For the first half of the book you have almost no idea what is actually going on but it s worth sticking it through because later it all falls into place The story takes it s premise from an old Jewish myth about a companion named Lilith whom God gave to Adam before Eve She was an angelic being not human and couldn t reconcile herself to the vocation of bearing Adam s children to populate the earth They had a single child together before their relationship was abandoned and Lilith was replaced by a fitting companion taken from Adam s side Because of Eve s later fruitfulness Lilith bore an eternal hatred towards the human race Most of the myth remains in the background however and the story centers on a man who stumbles through a mirror into an alternate realm where Adam Eve and Lilith continue to carry out their perpetual feud The climax of the story involves Adam the Father of mankind and Mara the Lady of Sorrows leading Lilith grudgingly toward repentance A parallel plot line involves the main character slowly learning how little it is he actually knows about what he has hitherto simply called reality Only after he willingly choosing to lie down in the House of the Dead is he able to rise to a fullness of life of which he has never before even dared to dream CS Lewis has been uoted as saying that this book baptized his imagination and for good reason The writing style leaves something to be desired it is heavy and plodding in places but the sheer myth of it is amazing In my opinion the entire story was worth the final few chapters which turn out to be a glimpse of what earthly life will be like after the resurrection of the dead It is absolutely beautiful in its description If you have yet to long for the world to come this story may help take you a long way down that road And better yet teach you to look for the glimpses of the heavenly kingdom which even now break through into the present world Here is my favorite passage along those lines from Lilith Now and then when I look round on my books they seem to waver as if a wind rippled their solid mass and another world were about to break through Sometimes when I am abroad a like thing takes place the heavens and the earth the trees and the grass appear for a moment to shake as if about to pass away then lo they have settled again into the old familiar face At times I seem to hear whisperings around me as if some that loved me were talking of me but when I would distinguish the words they cease and all is very still I know not whether these things rise in my brain or enter it from without I do not seek them they come and I let them goStrange dim memories which will not abide identification often through the misty windows of the past look out upon me in the broad daylight but I never dream now It may be notwithstanding that when most awake I am only dreaming the But when I wake at last into that life which as a mother her child carries this life in its bosom I shall know that I wake and shall doubt no I wait asleep or awake I waitOur life is no dream but it should and will perhaps become one The Goodbye Girl Vocal Selections right again It was a special mirror an As my brother accurately described it it starts out as a sort of

Lilith A Romance review í 3 E most profound It is a story concerning the nature of life death and salvation In the story MacDonald mentions a cosmic sleep that heals tortured souls preceding the salvation of all George MacDonald is one of the most severely underrated authors of all time A contemporary to Lewis Caroll and major influence on CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien this man s imagination apparently knew no bounds and that is incredibly apparent in his masterpiece Lilith Narrated by a nameless everyman figure it follows his adventures in a world he discovers after inheriting his father s house and many unsettling circumstances there leading him to a mirror which reveals another realm Incredibly complex this story is really like a series of events that the narrator witnesses in this realm all leading down to a confrontation with Lilith the legendary first wife of Adam in various cults of Jewish faith Ultimately it is a story of the nature of evil and the hope of redemption but it is packed with literary allusion and stunning imagery that the reader will not soon forget Written with a deft wit and a finesse for the subtleties of human nature MacDonald deserves to be in the ranks of he highest of fantasy and allegorical writers rather than collecting dust at the bottom of knowledge s shelf

    (EBOOK / KINDLE) Lilith A Romance Author George MacDonald What to say about this book Well it's the darker companion to Phantastes It's an immersive fantasy dream experience that transcends plot though it has one It's a Christian exhortation to the reader die to self if you would live forever It is by turns odd humorous witty sweet downright chilling and glorious It's often a blend of The Pilgrim's Progress and Alice in Wonderland but I love it than both those book
