Book Description

Regarded as one of the best authorities on the fiction of C.S. Lewis, Thomas Howard presents in this work brilliant new insights into Lewis' fiction and helps us to see things we may not have seen nor appreciated before. Focusing on Narnia, the space trilogy and Til We Have Faces, Howard explores with remarkable clarity the moral vision in the imaginary world of the master storyteller Lewis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Further Up and Further In 22 Mar. 2006
By Gord Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With the buzz generated by the new Narnia movie it makes absolute sense that Ignatius would title this book as a Narnia tie-in. As one of those who dislikes buying the same book under two different titles, however, I feel constrained to note that it's actually a reprint of Howard's C.S. Lewis: Man of Letters. It may also be related to an earlier Howard book entitled The Achievement of C.S. Lewis. I have no idea if this new edition has been edited or updated, but there's only one chapter on Narnia. The rest of the essays focus on what is generally termed Lewis' "space trilogy" (one essay for each of the three books) and his last fiction work, 'Till We Have Faces."

Readers may have seen Howard on a recent Narnia-related special on the Hallmark Channel, of which this book is a natural follow-up. I had the opportunity to hear some of this material given in lectures by Howard at Seattle Pacific University in connection with a C.S. Lewis conference. In Howard's book, The Novels of Charles Williams, he suggests reading the chapter for the relevant Williams novel as a sort of companion. He further developed this "reader's" approach in Dove Descending, a recently published guide to T.S. Eliot's poetry cycle, The Four Quartets. That advice especially applies here for readers of Lewis' three volume space trilogy, the Narnian Chronicles and 'Till We Have Faces. Readers new to Howard might find his discursive, ruminating style somewhat off-putting; when will he get to the point? But longtime Howardphiles (of which I am one) find his thoughtful rambles absolutely addicting. Regardless, Lewis fans will find here a literate and sympathetic reader who loves the books as much as they do, one uniquely qualified to take them further up and further in.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best companion for the Lewis' fiction. 11 Jan. 2013

Howard is an original and faithful lewisian teacher. One can see things up to now undiscovered and enjoy again Narnia, the Ransom's books and Till We Have Faces.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Lewis' lovers! 17 Mar. 2015
By SueBob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're a C.S. Lewis lover, you must have this book. Thomas Howard is an exceptionally great writer, ( on any subject) and his understanding of Lewis' work is right on target. It's a guide, but much more. His impressions of Lewis' writings are deep, illuminating, and delightful. I read it twice -- so far -- and will be re-reading it over time. I especially enjoyed his writings on the Space Trilogy -- I love these books, but they appear to be seldom read, and it was wonderful to read Howard's "examination' of them. Everything by Thomas Howard is a must-read, anyway. This book is a real treat.
