Book Overview
A repackaged edition of the revered author's treasury of essays and stories which examine the value of creative writing and imaginative exploration. C. S. Lewis--the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia , and many other beloved classics--presents a well-reasoned case for the importance of story and wonder, elements often ignored by critics of his time. He also discusses his favorite kinds of stories--children's stories and fantasies--and offers insights into his most famous works, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover In Of Other Worlds , Lewis presents essays that provide a well-reasoned case for the importance of story and wonder, elements often ignored by critics of his time. The fairy tale, he explains, stirs and troubles him (to his life-long enrichment) with the dim sense of something beyond his reach and, far from dulling or emptying the actual world, gives it a new dimension of depth. He elaborates his favorite kinds of stories--children's stories and fantasies--and offers insights into his most famous works, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy. A must-read for fans of Lewis's creative works.
