C.S. Lewis: His Literary Achievement

C.S. Lewis: His Literary Achievement

This book is the first thorough analysis of the whole of Lewis' fiction to show it has behind it a considerable sophistication of literary technique and patterning. The works discussed include THE PILGRIMS REGRESS, THE RANSOM TRILOGY, THE GREAT DIVORCE, the NARNIA books and TILL WE HAVE FACES

PRAISE FOR C.S. LEWIS: HIS LITERARY ACHIEVEMENT
This is a positively brilliant book, written with splendor, elegance, profundity and evidencing an enormous amount of learning. This is probably not a book for a first time reader of Lewis. But for those who are more broadly read in the Lewis corpus this book is an absolute gold mine of information. The author gives us a magnificent overview of Lewis' many writings, tracing for us thoughts and ideas which recur throughout, and at the same time telling us how each book differs from the others. I think it is not extravagant to call C. S. Lewis: His Literary Achievement a tour de force."
