In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

71 There are other matters one wouid like Wolff to examine in greater detail. More could be made of the problem of influence: of an earlier writer such as VJilliam Blake on MacDonald; of MacDonald's influence (conscious or unconscious) on Lewis Carroll's uterine Imagery in ALICE IN WONDERLAND; and of MacDonald's specific influence on the twentieth century neo-medievalists C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, "these matters are dismissed with only passing mention. One would also like to see more copious use of diaries and letters, but perhaps these were not available,, One should not cavil at studies of minor Victorian novelists; such studies do not make the best-seller list and are meant for the specialist. Scholars of the period can thank Wolff for his painstaking reading of MacDonald, for it presents a new interpretation—the Freudian—of MacDonald's work. — E. S. L.
