Product Description

Review

‘It is without question the most important reference work on Lewis yet published and… will never be entirely superseded.’
Times Literary Supplement

‘Full of accurate scholarship, a definitive work in the most literal sense, this may well prove to be the last word on his subject.’
Daily Telegraph

‘It is, by any standards, an outstanding achievement. Hooper has pioneered what is almost a new literary genre. It is beautifully produced – and with not a dull sentence in it.’
CATHOLIC HERALD

‘Nine hundred pages of true refreshment of the spirit. Nothing is missing.’
METHODIST RECORDER

From the Back Cover

Clive Staples Lewis wrote some of the most enduring religious and fantasy literature of the 20th century. His best loved classics such as 'The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, Surprised by Joy,' and 'The Problem of Pain', continue to sell in their thousands and are surpassed only by his allegorical series of children’s books, based in the imaginary world of Narnia. The most popular of these, 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,' has been adapted for film and television. His life became the basis for the movie ‘Shadowlands’ which starred Anthony Hopkins. Lewis died in 1963, but more than thirty years later his work remains at the forefront of popular appeal.

Now Walter Hooper, one of the world’s leading scholars of C.S. Lewis’s work, has written the definitive C.S. Lewis handbook. Covering every type of publication – The Chronicles of Narnia, science fiction, literary criticism and religious – it features the following:
• A chronology of the events of Lewis’s life and a brief biography
• Detailed descriptions of the background and contents of each of the books, including the reactions of critics when they were published
• Lewis’s key ideas and thought
• A ‘who’s who’ of people in Lewis’s life and a ‘what’s what’ of locations and events

• An exhaustive bibliography of all his writings

'C. S. Lewis: A Companion & Guide' is an informative and enjoyable resource for study and general reference.

I am a CSC fan and this book is a "must" for me. As well as giving summaries of all of CSL's books it has en enormous amount of scholarly comment by Walter Hooper. It is also super value at the price. It is a mine of information and interesting to read. It has a very full index too.

Have recently begun re-reading C. S. Lewis' books and the Companion is helping me get so much more out of them. It is easy to read with excellent index.
