Lewis, and Madeleine L Engle; he is recognized as a mentor to Lewis Carroll and heavily influenced Carroll s decision to submit Alice s Adventures in Wonderland for publication.

I was not familiar with George MacDonald but I became acquainted with his works after I had read how C.S. Lewis was very much influenced by him. I am not well versed on poetry but I appreciated "The Hidden Life" and the message it conveyed to me. The visual imagery produced through the authors words made me think of the calmness of wheat fields blowing in the wind. This is certainly a beautiful poem and one which I will always remember. Excerpt: " So four long years his life went to and fro; Betwixt the scarlet gown and rough blue coat; The garret study and the wide floored barn; The wintry city and the sunny fields. In each his quiet mind was well content; because he was himself, where'er he was". Simply beautiful.
