release date: Nov 01, 2022
On Writing (and Writers)
A definitive collection of wisdom on every style of writing and a celebration of the transformative power of the written word from one of the most influential writers and thinkers of the modern age, C. S. Lewis, the beloved author of the Chronicles of Narnia series, Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, and other revered classics. Featuring over one hundred excerpts—some short and some essay length—drawn from his wide body of letters, books, and essays, On Writing (and Writers) brings together C. S. Lewis’s reflections on the power, importance, and joy of a life dedicated to writing. Writers and devoted readers will be enriched and inspired by Lewis’s commentary on a range of genres, including: On Good Writing On Writing Fiction On Writing Poetry On Writing for Children On Writing Science Fiction On Christian Writing On Writing Persuasively On Other Writers Wise and practical, On Writing (and Writers) reveals Lewis’s thoughts on both mechanics and style, including choosing adjectives, the art of expression, how to connect with readers, and the core principles of clear, impactful writing. A window into the mind of one of the greatest public intellectuals of the twentieth century—a gifted writer whose influence and insights remain relevant six decades after his death—this engaging collection reveals not only why Lewis loved the written word, but what it means to “gladly teach” the art of writing, so that wise readers can “gladly learn.”

The Pilgrim's Regress, Wade Annotated Edition

release date: Jul 28, 2020
The Pilgrim's Regress, Wade Annotated Edition
C. S. Lewis''s allegory enhanced with a wealth of annotations, including notes by Lewis himself Modeled after John Bunyan''s famous Pilgrim''s Progress, C. S. Lewis''s Pilgrim''s Regress represents a number of firsts for Lewis--the first book he wrote after his conversion to Christianity, his first book of fiction, and the first book he published under his own name. This splendid annotated edition, produced in collaboration with the Marion E. Wade Center in Wheaton, Illinois, helps readers recover the richness of Lewis''s allegory. Often considered obscure and difficult to read, The Pilgrim''s Regress nonetheless remains a witty satire on cultural fads, a vivid account of spiritual dangers, and an illuminating tale for generations of pilgrims old and new. Editor David C. Downing''s critical introduction provides needed biographical and cultural context for fully appreciating The Pilgrim''s Regress. Downing relies throughout both on his own expertise and on previously unpublished sources from Lewis himself to identify allusions to other authors, translate quotations, and explain humor hidden within Lewis''s text. Among the hundreds of annotations are references that draw parallels to Lewis''s later works, including Mere Christianity, Surprised by Joy, and the Chronicles of Narnia.
