Description

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.show more

Back cover copy

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.show more
