Most widely held works by Clive S Lewis
The chronicles of Narnia by C. S Lewis( Book )

28 editions published between 1970 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, and epic battles between good and evil -- what more could any reader ask for in one book? The book that has it all is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, written in 1949 by Clive Staples Lewis. But Lewis did not stop there. Six more books followed, and together they became known as The Chronicles of Narnia. For the past fifty years, The Chronicles of Narnia have transcended the fantasy genre to become part of the canon of classic literature. Each of the seven books is a masterpiece, drawing the reader into a land where magic meets reality, and the result is a fictional world whose scope has fascinated generations. This edition presents all seven books -- unabridged -- in one impressive volume. The books are presented here according to Lewis' preferred order, each chapter graced with an illustration by the original artist, Pauline Baynes. Deceptively simple and direct, The Chronicles of Narnia continue to captivate fans with adventures, characters, and truths that speak to readers of all ages, even fifty years after they were first published

Love is the commonest these of serious imaginative literature and is still generally regarded as able and enabling passion. Love has not always taken such precedence, however, and it was in fact not until the eleventh century that French poets first began to express the romantic species of passion which English poets were still writing about in the nineteenth century. This book is intended for students of medieval literature from A-level upwards. Anyone interested in the `Courtly Love' tradition

Nach "Der König von Narnia" (BA 11/05) sowie "Das Wunder von Narnia" (BA 2/07) liegt nun der 3. Teil der "Chroniken ..." neu übersetzt vor. Um der Sklaverei zu entkommen, wollen Shasta und das sprechende Pferd Bree nach Narnia fliehen. Auf ihrer Reise treffen sie auf Prinzessin Aravis, mit der die beiden zunächst nach Tashbaan ziehen. Als sie dort den Plan des Prinzen Rabadash aufdecken, Archenland und Narnia anzugreifen, beschliessen sie den König des Archenlandes zu warnen. - Interessante Charaktere in einem actionreichen Abenteuer mit vielen zauberhaften Momenten machen diesen - unabhängigen - Band spannend und stark. Die bildreiche Sprache Lewis', sein kluger Humor und warmherziger Ton wurden von den Übersetzern erneut flüssig und gekonnt in aktuellen Sprachgebrauch übertragen, der märchenhafte Charme dabei bewahrt. Die Übersetzung U. Neckenauers (z.B. Brendow, BA 5/93) kann im Bestand bleiben, bei Neu- oder Ersatzkauf sollte die neue Fassung bevorzugt werden. Wo Band 1 und 2 bereits ausgetauscht wurden, sollte wegen der Kontinuität der Namen ("Susan", Schloss "Cair Paravel") auch dieser vorliegen

Out of the silent planet by C. S Lewis( Book )

7 editions published between 1959 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first book of C.S. Lewis's legendary science fiction trilogy, Dr. Ransom is kidnapped and spirited by spaceship to the mysterious red planet of Malandra. He escapes and goes on the run, jeopardizing both his chances of ever returning to Earth and his very life. First published in 1943, this classic interplanetary fantasy continues to delight readers around the world. Written during the dark hours immediately before and during the Second World War, C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which Out of the Silent Planet is the first volume, stands alongside such works as Albert Camus's The Plague and George Orwell's 1984 as a timely parable that has become timeless, beloved by succeeding generations as much for the sheer wonder of its storytelling as for the significance of the moral concerns. For the trilogy's central figure, C.S. Lewis created perhaps the most memorable character of his career, the brilliant, clear-eyed, and fiercely brave philologist Dr. Elwin Ransom. Appropriately, Lewis modeled Dr. Ransom after his dear friend J.R.R. Tolkien, for in the scope of its imaginative achievement and the totality of its vision of not one but two imaginary worlds, the Space Trilogy is rivaled in this century only by Tolkien's trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Readers who fall in love with Lewis's fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia as children, unfailingly cherish his Space Trilogy as adults; it, too, brings to life strange and magical realms in which epic battles are fought between the forces of light and those of darkness. But in the many layers of its allegory, and the sophistication and piercing brilliance of its insights into the human condition, it occupies a place among the English language's most extraordinary works for any age, and for all time. Out of the Silent Planet introduces Dr. Ransom and chronicles his abduction by a megalomaniacal physicist and his accomplice via space ship to the planet Malacandra. The two men are in need of a human sacrifice and Dr. Ransom would seem to fit the bill. Dr. Ransom escapes upon landing, though, and goes on the run, a stranger in a land that, like Jonathan Swift's Lilliput, is enchanting in its difference from Earth and instructive in its similarity
