C.S. Lewis; a biography by Roger Lancelyn Green ( Book )
40 editions published between 1960 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born in Belfast in 1898 and sent to England for a public school education with his elder brother, Warren, C.S. Lewis exhibited a genius for imagination and perception from his earliest years. Later, his Chronicles of Narnia became children's classics and he was deluged with correspondence from his young readers." "During his lifetime C.S. Lewis suggested to his friend, Roger Lancelyn Green, that he would undertake his biography one day. After Lewis's death in 1963 Lancelyn Green and Walter Hooper, Lewis's personal secretary during the last months of his life, were approached by several of Lewis's friends who encouraged them to write his story. Lewis's brother Warren contributed a great deal to the research, and the authors had at their disposal a vast collection of letters and diaries and the unique recollections of many surviving family members and friends."--BOOK JACKET

Present concerns by C. S Lewis ( Book )
10 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
All but two of the essays here first appeared in newspapers and magazines, and, although their subjects are wide-ranging, they all share an infusion of Lewis's characteristic sanity and persuasiveness. In those essays between 1940 and 1945, Lewis reflects on questions generated by the war: Democratic values, the need for an updated chivalry, and the cynicism of the modern soldier. Other essays examine the threats to educational and spiritual fulfillment, while "Sex in Literature" and "On Living in the Atomic Age" address literary censorship and our very human survival--issues debated even more passionately today than in Lewis's lifetime

C.S. Lewis's lost Aeneid : arms and the exile ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) is best remembered as a literary critic, essayist, theologian, and novelist, and his famed tales The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters have been read by millions. Now, A.T. Reyes reveals a different side of this diverse man of letters: translator. Reyes introduces the surviving fragments of Lewis's translation of Virgil's epic poem, which were rescued from a bonfire. They are presented in parallel with the Latin text, and are accompanied by synopses of missing sections, and an informative glossary, making them accessible to the general reader. Writes Lewis in A Preface to Paradise Lost, "Virgil uses something more subtle than mere length of time ... It is this which gives the reader of the Aeneid the sense of having lived through so much. No man who has read it with full perception remains an adolescent." Lewis's admiration for the Aeneid, written in the 1st century BC and unfolding the adventures of Aeneas, a Trojan who traveled to Italy and became the ancestor of the Romans, is evident in his remarkably lyrical translation. C.S. Lewis's Lost Aeneid is part detective story, as Reyes recounts the dramatic rescue of the fragments and his efforts to collect and organize them, and part illuminating look at a lesser-known and intriguing aspect of Lewis's work. -- Jacket
