If you’ve loved Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series and Space Trilogy, get an inside look from his mind about those worlds he created. In “Of Other Worlds,” Lewis makes the case for the importance of story and wonder.
The fairy tale, he explains, “stirs and troubles him (to his life-long enrichment) with the dim sense of something beyond his reach and, far from dulling or emptying the actual world, gives it a new dimension of depth.”
Lewis was an English Literature professor at Oxford and Cambridge, a philosopher, a scholar, a theologian, and is most well-known as a writer and novelist.
“Of Other Worlds,” is a repackaging of essays and short stories that powerfully convey the importance of imagination when it comes to the stories we create and the worlds to which we allow our minds to journey.
