Product Description This reissue of a treasured classic offers a window into the people and places that shaped the life of beloved author, scholar, and apologist C. S. Lewis. In photographs and text (much of it in Lewis's own words), Douglas Gilbert and Clyde S. Kilby introduce us to such memorable friends as J. R. R. Tolkien and transport us to such magical places as the deer park outside Lewis's rooms at Magdalen College, Oxford. We also meet Lewis as a talented and brilliant child in Belfast, captivated by the myths and legends of the North, already writing and illustrating imaginative stories and poems at a young age. While the book includes an essay tracing Lewis's struggle to find faith and a chronology of his life, it is not a biography per se but rather a personal introduction, a composite portrait of a fascinating individual and the world in which he lived. Attractively laid out in a fresh new format, this volume will be prized both by longtime fans of Lewis and by those encountering him for the first time. From Publishers Weekly This classic 1973 book, re-issued to coincide with Hollywood's attention to C.S. Lewis's Narnia series, offers readers a "personal introduction" to Lewis through photo and text. Kilby, an English professor who died in 1986, was a friend of Lewis's, and strikes an admiring tone in an opening essay on the great writer's spiritual evolution from atheist to Christian. Then Lewis's early life is presented in the usual sepia manner: we see the expected photos from his boyhood in Belfast, but we also glimpse facsimiles of some of the child prodigy's illustrated stories about "Animal-Land." That approach is followed in the rest of the book as well, which is not a simple photo-biography so much as a generous homage to the places Lewis lived and loved. Gilbert's photos-of Magdalen Tower in Oxford, of the pub where the Inklings read their work aloud, of beloved landscapes in England, Ireland, and Scotland-blend with historical images of Lewis and his companions. Although some of Gilbert's own photos of people and urban scenes seem dated, the landscapes are timeless and gorgeous. The book closes with a helpful chronology of Lewis's life.

Lewis: Images of His World ?The constant and ever-growing audience for C. S. Lewis, for both his own work and books about him, will welcome this book. It captures his life and circle and ambience in superb photographs, many in color, of persons and places. . . . This will be basic to Lewis studies and a joy to enthusiasts of his work.? ?
