Overview

C. S. Lewis reworks the timeless myth of Cupid and Psyche into an enduring piece of contemporary fiction in this novel about the struggle between sacred and profane love. Set in the pre-Christian world of Glome on the outskirts of Greek civilization, it is a tale of two princesses: the beautiful Psyche, who is loved by the god of love himself, and Orual, Psyche’s unattractive and embittered older sister who loves Psyche with a destructive possessiveness. Her frustration and jealousy over Psyche’s fate sets Orual on the troubled path of self-discovery. Lewis’ last work of fiction, this is often considered his best by critics. “Exerts, far beyond most novels, that combination of … wonder and attraction.” “The most significant and triumphant work that Lewis has … produced.” “In Mr. Lewis’ sensitive hands the ancient myth retains its fascination while being endowed with new meanings, new depths, new terrors.” “Whenever [Wanda McCaddon] reads, a sensation of comfort creeps into the atmosphere. Her vocal clarity and understanding of the author’s meaning bring pleasure and even security to the listening of each work.” “[McCaddon’s] reading is well paced, her voice light, soft, or strained as the action waxes and wanes.”
