"The Imagination: Its Function and Culture" by George MacDonald

5 stars
This essay, first published in 1867 in A Dish of Orts, was a breath of fresh air. In a culture that has taken possession of our imagination, MacDonald's critique of and invitation to its proper function is lifting. It was an inspirational read and a call to think correctly about the role of the imagination and how to rightly engage it.
