“Lilith” is the 1895 fantasy novel by George MacDonald, the pioneering and widely influential Scottish writer and Christian minister. It is the story of Mr. Vane, the owner of a library that seems to be haunted by a former librarian, a spirit that resembles a raven. When Vane finally encounters the wraith, called Mr. Raven, he comes to discover that it knew his father, who now resides in “the region of the seven dimensions”. Vane follows the apparition through a mirror to this strange new world where he encounters the house of beds, where dreamers sleep in death until the end of the world, the Little Ones, who are children prevented from ever growing up, and Lilith, the beautiful and charming princess of Bulika. Vane vows to help the Little Ones after meeting and falling in love with Lona, the eldest of the children. A fantastical journey with great battles and heartbreaking tragedy, Vane searches for truth and redemption in a mystical world. “Lilith” is considered one of MacDonald’s darkest and most profound works, one that concerns the very nature of life, death, and salvation itself.
