Beschreibung

Explores the significance of the ten books C.S. Lewis said influenced him most from the perspectives of both his personal life and written works.

In 1962, The Christian Century published C.S. Lewiss answer to the question, What books did most to shape your vocational attitude and your philosophy of life? Lewis responded with ten titles, ranging from Virgils Aeneid to James Boswells The Life of Samuel Johnson and from George Herberts The Temple to Boethiuss The Consolation of Philosophy. C.S. Lewiss List brings together experts on each of the ten books to discuss their significance for Lewiss life and work, illuminating his own writing through those he most admired.

Autorentext
Clive Staples Lewis, known as Jack to his friends, was born in 1898. Lewis and his good friend J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of the Inklings, an informal writers club that met at a local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewiss fascination with fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends, coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood, led him to write.
