by George MacDonaldWith the exceptions of The Gray Wolf, The Cruel Painter, and Uncle Cornelius, this collection is not quite fantasy.The stories are tedious yet beautifully-written.This collection comprises preachy and descriptive stories of marriage, life and death, ghosts and phantoms, and a shapeshifter.The narration is introspective and gabby throughout, though of course what did I expect from Victorian fiction?
I'm sure I'll be reading more George McD in the months to come. I enjoyed the haunted and twilit feeling of his writing and language; I'm certain I'll enjoy the pure fantasy of the novels Lilith or Phantastes quite a bit more than I did this hit-or-miss collection.
