A fascinating collection of essays in which C.S. Lewis reflects on the work of contemporary authors and gives his views on different aspects of the art of writing fiction.


Lewis, famous for his ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ and other fantasy writings, discusses the theme of ‘story’ – particularly in regard to fairy tales and science fiction. Essays include:


‘On Three Ways of Writing for Children’
‘On Science Fiction’
‘The Hobbit’
‘Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings’
‘George Orwell’


He also comments on the novels of Charles Williams, Ryder Haggard and Dorothy L Sayers.


Many of the literary critics of Lewis’s day encouraged readers to look for literature in drudgery, cynicism, distaste and social justice. Anything else was branded ‘escapist’. Here C.S. Lewis argues his corner as the champion of romance and fantasy.
