Letters of C. S. Lewis (Harvest Book)by C. S. Lewis
Synopses & Reviews
"Lewis...forced those who listened to him and read his words to come to terms with their own philosophical presuppositions."--Los Angeles Times
The letters collected here cover a vast range of subjects--books, nature, people, and every aspect of God and His world--and extend from C.S. Lewis's early days as a student and atheist up to a few weeks before his death. His correspondence with family, friends, and even fans, offers readers an opportunity to share Lewis's wit and originality.
Introduced and edited by Walter Hooper, this volume represents an important revision to the collection of Lewis's letters published in 1966: several letters have been added, proper dates have been restored to some, correspondents' names to others. And, as in the original volume, selected entries from Lewis's own diary are included, as is Warnie Lewis's fascinating memoir of his brother's life.
C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) gained international renown for an impressive array of works both popular and scholarly: a science fiction trilogy, children's books, a novel, poetry, literary criticism, and numerous books on Christianity. Among his most celebrated achievements are Out of the Silent Planet, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, and Surprised by Joy.
“Yes, autumn is really the best of the seasons: and I’m not sure that old age isn’t the best part of life. But of course, like Autumn, it doesn’t last.”
What better way to know a writer’s innermost thoughts than by reading their letters? This volume collects C.S. Lewis’s correspondence with family, friends, and fans, and spans from his youth as a student to just a few weeks before his death. Witness his conversion from atheism to Christianity, as well as his thoughts on books, nature, humanity, and God.
Introduced and edited by Walter Hooper, this volume includes selected entries from Lewis's own diary, and Warnie Lewis's fascinating memoir of his brother's life.
"If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels." —The New Yorker
An important revision and expansion of the earlier collection of Lewiss letters. Entries from Lewiss diary are included, as is Warnie Lewiss memoir of his brothers life. Edited by Walter Hooper and W. H. Lewis; Introduction by Hooper; Index.
