Liverpool University Press

Concentrating on Lilith, this chapter examines how George MacDonald employs shape-shifting characters for spiritual and social purposes. Lack of fixity is at once an expression of religious conviction and an exercise of the imagination. MacDonald’s fairy tales are not an escape from reality but a means of critically engaging with it.
