Agreed. His works remain some of the greatest and most inspiring ever written.

Uh....no. C.S. Lewis (1898-1963).

An amazing mind who wrote brilliant philosophy, theology, classical studies, poetry, science fiction, memoirs and the wonderful Narnia saga. smile

C. S. Lewis has been a constant inspiration to me.

Amazing, how so much he was influenced by his friend, J.R.R.Tolkien, who even helped convert Lewis to Catholicism over a long night.

Loved Lewis's books when I first read them, grew up when the Narnia series first appeared, still have first editions of some of them, purchased when they came out.

It was only later that I realized how much of Lewis's writing consisted of his "versions" of the work of his friends. Narnia derives from Middle-Earth. "That Hideous Strength" is a stylistic copy of the work of Charles Williams, a wonderful writer of quirky fantasy novels, centered in a very strong spirituality.

But the best book, by far, IMHO, is Lewis's "'Til We Have Faces," a re-telling of the Cupid and Psyche myth, with a sometimes startling viewpoint. Challenging, moving, memorable. I cherish my first edition.

Is anyone here familiar with this book?



Among other things contributing to our notions of the middle ages, it discusses Lewis and Tolkien and their creations. I haven't read it all yet, but I've checked out parts of it, and I plan to read it all soon. Thoughts?

Not quite. Tolkien was a little upset when Lewis did not choose Catholicism. Still they were good friend. R.I.P. Narnia has always been my favorite book series.
