Book Description :

A repackaged edition of the revered author’s retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche—what he and many others regard as his best novel. C. S. Lewis—the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics—brilliantly reimagines the story of Cupid and Psyche. Told from the viewpoint of Psyche’s sister, Orual, Till We Have Faces is a brilliant examination of envy, betrayal, loss, blame, grief, guilt, and conversion. In this, his final—and most mature and masterful—novel, Lewis reminds us of our own fallibility and the role of a higher power in our lives.

Book Description :

The first study of C.S. Lewis to offer a detailed examination of "Till We Have Faces," Peter J. Schakel's book is also the first to explore the tension between reason and imagination that significantly shaped Lewis' thinking and writing. Schakel begins with a close analysis of "Till We Have Faces" which leads the readers through the plot, clarifying its themes and it discusses structure, symbols and allusions. The second part of the book surveys Lewis' works, tracing the tension between reason and imagination. In the works of the thirties and forties reason is in the ascendant; from the early fifties on, in works such as the Chronicles of Narnia, there is an increased emphasis on imagination - which culminates in the fine "myth retold," "Till We Have Faces." Imagination and reason are reconciled, finally in the works of the early sixties such as "A Grief Observed" and "Letters to Malcolm." PETER J. SCHAKEL is Professor of English at Hope College, Holland, MI. "This book is what Lewis scholarship ought to be. It is the most thoughtful, careful Lewis study yet." - Peter Kreeft "Reason and Imagination" is a remarkable achievement, literary criticism that is both wise and moving." - Margaret Hannay "Peter Schakel brings to C. S. Lewis scholarship what has often been lacking, namely rigorous scholarly method and real critical detachment. His study of "Till We Have Faces" is a major contribution to Lewis studies." - Thomas Howard

Book Description :

C. S. Lewis' adaptation of the Cupid and Psyche myth is particularly notable for its considerable deviations from the classical story which first appeared in Apuleius' The Golden Ass. In Lewis' version of this myth, Till We Have Faces, Lewis focuses on the sacrificial element of Psyche's marriage to Cupid-or, as Lewis renames him, the Shadowbrute. Lewis casts Psyche's sister, Orual, as the protagonist of the novel. Through Orual's perception of the marriage of Psyche to Cupid, Lewis' audience is forced to accept Lewis' defense of pre-Christian paganism. Lewis emphasizes the gory details of sacrifice to the gods in an attempt to legitimize bloody, violent pagan religions on the basis of their sincerity and power. He clearly and repeatedly asserts that the darker and the more amorphous the religion, the more true, holy, and compelling that religion is. Indeed, Lewis seems to suggest that the kind of bloody, savage religion described in Frazer's The Golden Bough is prototypical of Biblical ideas and foreshadows or lays the groundwork for Christianity. Most notable is Lewis's insistence that transformation of Psyche and Orual into divine figures necessitates violence. The Psyche of Till We Have Faces is largely reminiscent of Lewis' character Lucy Pevensie of The Chronicles of Narnia in that both Psyche and Lucy both embrace a participatory epistemology; both Psyche and Lucy participate with the god and accept that their intense longing for the god denotes truth. In contrast, Orual actively insists on disbelief, much like the dwarves of Lewis' The Last Battle, because of her refusal to participate in pure, sacrificial love. As a result, Orual is imprisoned by her own consuming, selfish love for Psyche.

Book Description :

Haunted by the myth of Cupid and Psyche throughout his life, C.S. Lewis wrote this, his last, extraordinary novel, to retell their story through the gaze of Psyche's sister, Orual. Disfigured and embittered, Orual loves her younger sister to a fault and suffers deeply when she is sent away to Cupid, the God of the Mountain. Psyche is forbidden to look upon the god's face, but is persuaded by her sister to do so; she is banished for her betrayal. Orual is left alone to grow in power but never in love, to wonder at the silence of the gods. Only at the end of her life, in visions of her lost beloved sister, will she hear an answer.

Book Description :

Although Till We Have Faces (1956) was written late in C.S. Lewis's life (1898-1963), during the peak of his literary renown, the novel remains one of Lewis's least known and least accessible works. Due to its relatively ancient and obscure source material, as well as its tendency towards the esoteric, a healthy interpretation of the novel necessitates a wider look at Lewis's life-long body of work. By approaching Till We Have Faces through the framework of Lewis and the corpus of his work, the reader can see two principal conflicts that characterize the work as a whole, and, more specifically, the protagonist Orual's attempts at reconciliation with the gods. The first is Orual's tension between rationalism and romanticism, as seen through the framework of Lewis's The Pilgrim's Regress and Surprised by Joy; the second is Orual's perverted sense of love, particularly her affection for her sister Psyche, as understood through Lewis's The Four Loves and The Great Divorce. By analyzing Orual's resolution of these two conflicts, illuminated through Lewis's other books, the reader can see the deeper themes hiding within Lewis's "myth retold," namely, the finitude of man and the inexpressibility of the divine.

Book Description :

Religious discourse has become alien to the secular and skeptical western societies of the twentieth century. There is real discomfort when religious discourse appears either in the popular press or in society. But even in a secular society, there is still a psychological need (one might even use the stronger word will), if not to believe, then at least to hope. Dr. Filmer states this need is met in the literature of fantasy.

Book Description :

C. S. Lewis embodied the Christian mind because he saw the world as a coherent unity. His writing consistently pursued the good, the true, and the beautiful. He used nonfiction to point out the reasonableness of Christianity and used his fiction to create compelling illustrations that make faith in Christ an obvious and attractive conclusion. This book explores the Christian mind of C. S. Lewis across the spectrum of the genres he worked in. With contributors from diverse disciplines and interests, the volume illuminates the many facets of Lewis's work. The Christian Mind of C. S. Lewis assists readers to read Lewis better and also to read other works better. The overarching goal is, just as Lewis would have desired, to help people see Christ more clearly in the world and to be more like Christ.
