12 Poets #5: George MacDonald

imacdod001p1Well, it’s time sadly to say goodbye to Christina Rossetti, but also time to say hello to a new poet. This month we will be looking at another great Victorian writer, the Scottish novelist, preacher and poet George MacDonald. MacDonald is more famous perhaps for his fantasy novels for children, but he was, like most Victorian writers, extraordinarily prolific, producing reams of sermons, devotions, realist novels, essays and, less famously, poems. So this month we will go on a journey of discovery through his poetry. Who knows what we will find. I hope you can all join me along the way.

  1. For months I have been telling myself that I need to take a poetry class. But your posts are so educational (and from a wonderfully-Christ-centered world view) that I will probably put off going away for an education and just keep reading your posts. I learn something new almost every time I come here. Thanks!!!!
