Details

Selected Literary Essays includes over 20 of C. S. Lewis’ most important literary essays, written between 1932 and 1962. The topics discussed in this volume range from Chaucer to Kipling, from “The Literary Impact of the Authorized Version” to “Psycho–Analysis and Literary Criticism”, to Shakespeare and Bunyan, and Sir Walter Scott and William Morris. Common to each essay, however, are the lively wit, the distinctive forthrightness, and the discreet erudition which characterize Lewis’ best critical writing.
