Critical Essays on C.S. Lewis, Seite 4

This volume, edited by a colleague of C.S. Lewis, traces his critical reputation from his earliest days down to his death in 1963. Lewis was a critical theorist at a time when theory was unfashionable, and his theory of narrative, especially, has dropped from view in recent years. In his lifetime he was famous above all as a theologian, a novelist and a writer of children's stories. But he was also a highly innovative thinker about the theory of literature, a pioneer of response-theory and an eminent literary historian, especially of the Renaissance. This collection will rebuild his reputation as a scholar and a teacher, and dispose of the myth that theory is inimical to the British academic mind.
