          Sinopsis
          This carefully crafted ebook: "A Voyage to Arcturus" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. A Voyage to Arcturus combines fantasy, philosophy, and science fiction in an exploration of the nature of good and evil and their relationship with existence. Described by critic and philosopher Colin Wilson as the "greatest novel of the twentieth century", it was a central influence on C. S. Lewis' Space Trilogy, and through him on J. R. R. Tolkien, who said he read the book "with avidity". An interstellar voyage is the framework for a narrative of a journey through fantastic landscapes. The story is set at Tormance, an imaginary planet orbiting Arcturus, which, in the novel (but not in reality) is a double star system, consisting of stars Branchspell and Alppain. The lands through which the characters travel represent philosophical systems or states of mind, through which the main character, Maskull, passes on his search for the meaning of life.David Lindsay was an author now best remembered for the philosophical science fiction novel A Voyage to Arcturus. The secret of Lindsay's originality as a novelist lies in his metaphysical assumptions.
          Acerca de David Lindsay

          David Lindsay (1876-1945) is a writer best known for his first novel, A Voyage to Arcturus. Published in 1920, it has been called "the greatest imaginative work of the twentieth century" (Colin Wilson), "a stupendous ontological fable" (E H Visiak), "a masterpiece... an extraordinary work" (Clive Barker), "that shattering, intolerable, and irresistible work" (C S Lewis), and "less a novel than it is private kabbalah" (Alan Moore). John Grant, in The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, called it "a masterpiece of allegorical fantasy".Lindsay himself said that as long as publishing existed he would have readers, however few, and has been proved right. A Voyage to Arcturus, and his subsequent novels The Haunted Woman (1922), Sphinx (1923), The Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly (1926) and Devil's Tor (1932) have found a growing audience of devotees, enabling his unpublished novels (The Violet Apple, and the unfinished The Witch) to be brought out in the 1970s. He has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Bulgarian, Russian, Japanese, Catalan, Romanian and Turkish.
