Overview

Designed to deepen the appreciation and understanding of new Lewis readers and longtime enthusiasts alike, this comprehensive companion provides invaluable biographical, textual and historical insight into C. S. Lewis' remarkable personal, spiritual and intellectual legacy.

Walter Hooper, an eminent C. S. Lewis scholar and one of the trustees of the C. S. Lewis estate, has created an accessible, organized, all-in-one resource that features: A complete chronological biography that traces Lewis' life from his childhood in Belfast and war experience in France to his brilliant academic career at Oxford and Cambridge, through his religious conversion, the publication of each of his books, and his late marriage and widowhood.

A Who's Who listing of Lewis' family, teachers, pupils, spiritual mentors and friends, including Dorothy L. Sayers, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the "Inklings," a circle of friends with whom Lewis gathered for some 30 years to share compositions and "enjoy a golden age of talk about poetry, language, myth and imagination."

A What's What guide to the significance of places and things, from The Book of Common Prayer to the Cherbourg House preparatory school where a young Lewis "ceased to be a Christian."

A Key Ideas exploration of Lewis' thoughts on everything from enchantment, reason, imagination and joy to democratic education, myth and the masculine and feminine.

Giving thoughtful attention to each of Lewis' writings, and filled with telling detail, the C. S. Lewis Companion and Guide offers Lewis readers unparalleled access to the life and life's work of an extraordinary man.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
What more can be said about C.S. Lewis who, though dead for over 30 years, still figures prominently on religion bestseller lists, provides grist for graduate theses and fuels not a few acrimonious debates? No new revelations are forthcoming from Hooper, Lewis's secretary during the summer before his death. Rather, he has assembled available information, arranging it chronologically, alphabetically and topically in this introduction to Lewis's life and times. Section one is a straightforward biography rife with references to Lewis's writings and to the explanatory entries in the three sections that follow: "Who's Who," mini-biographies of Lewis's most formative friends and associates; "What's What," definitions and place descriptions; and "Key Ideas," summaries of Lewis's attitudes toward subjects as diverse as quiddity and pagan Christs. The entries in the last three sections are too few and too long to serve as a complete Lewis encyclopedia, but many are fascinating essays in their own right. (May)
