This selection from the writings of C. S. Lewis gathers together forty book reviews, never before reprinted, as well as four major essays which have been unavailable for many decades. A fifth essay, 'Image and Imagination', is published for the first time. Taken together, the collection presents some of Lewis's finest literary criticism and religious exposition. The essays and reviews substantiate his reputation as an eloquent and authoritative critic across a wide range of literature, and as a keen judge of contemporary scholarship, while his reviews of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings will be of additional interest to scholars and students of fantasy.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Thanks to the tireless work of Walter Hooper, who has worked for five decades to keep C. S Lewis's works in print, “Image and Imagination” by C. S. Lewis is the first new writing of Lewis’ in years. “Image and Imagination” is yet another important collection of essays and reviews to the Lewis canon. The title essay, never before published, is essential reading for all C. S. Lewis fans, and the reviews are as winsome and candid as the Collected Letters that Mr. Hooper released a few years ago. “Image and Imagination” is a fitting tribute on the fiftieth anniversary of C. S. Lewis's death and the unveiling of the monument to Lewis in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey.
