C.S. Lewis is one of the very best critics writing in English in the twentieth century. There is no essay by Lewis on any writer that does not provoke attention and inspire awe at his energy and clarity of mind.
—Claude Rawson, Maynard Mack professor emeritus of English, Yale University
Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than 30 books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classic Mere Christianity.
