Om författaren

C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis, "Jack" to his intimates, was born on November 29, 1898 in Belfast, Ireland. His mother died when he was 10 years old and his lawyer father allowed Lewis and his brother Warren extensive freedom. The pair were extremely close and they took full advantage of this freedom, visa mer learning on their own and frequently enjoying games of make-believe. These early activities led to Lewis's lifelong attraction to fantasy and mythology, often reflected in his writing. He enjoyed writing about, and reading, literature of the past, publishing such works as the award-winning The Allegory of Love (1936), about the period of history known as the Middle Ages. Although at one time Lewis considered himself an atheist, he soon became fascinated with religion. He is probably best known for his books for young adults, such as his Chronicles of Narnia series. This fantasy series, as well as such works as The Screwtape Letters (a collection of letters written by the devil), is typical of the author's interest in mixing religion and mythology, evident in both his fictional works and nonfiction articles. Lewis served with the Somerset Light Infantry in World War I; for nearly 30 years he served as Fellow and tutor of Magdalen College at Oxford University. Later, he became Professor of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University. C.S. Lewis married late in life, in 1957, and his wife, writer Joy Davidman, died of cancer in 1960. He remained at Cambridge until his death on November 22, 1963. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

(eng) C. S. Lewis first published A Grief Observed under the alias "N. W. Clerk". Don't separate that name, unless there will ever be an author called N. W. Clerk turning up.

Kort biografi
Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) was a British writer and lay theologian. He held academic positions in English literature at both Oxford University (Magdalen College, 1925–1954) and Cambridge University (Magdalene College, 1954–1963). He is best known for his works of fiction, especially The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy, and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain.

Lewis and fellow novelist J. R. R. Tolkien were close friends. They both served on the English faculty at Oxford University and were active in the informal Oxford literary group known as the Inklings.[1] According to Lewis's memoir Surprised by Joy, he was baptised in the Church of Ireland, but fell away from his faith during adolescence. Lewis returned to Anglicanism at the age of 32, owing to the influence of Tolkien and other friends, and he became an "ordinary layman of the Church of England".[2] Lewis's faith profoundly affected his work, and his wartime radio broadcasts on the subject of Christianity brought him wide acclaim.

Lewis wrote more than 30 books[3] which have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies. The books that make up The Chronicles of Narnia have sold the most and have been popularised on stage, TV, radio, and cinema. His philosophical writings are widely cited by Christian apologists from many denominations.

In 1956, Lewis married American writer Joy Davidman; she died of cancer four years later at the age of 45. Lewis died on 22 November 1963 from kidney failure, one week before his 65th birthday. In 2013, on the 50th anniversary of his death, Lewis was honoured with a memorial in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey.
C. S. Lewis first published A Grief Observed under the alias "N. W. Clerk". Don't separate that name, unless there will ever be an author called N. W. Clerk turning up.

Del 4.

"Den här berättelsen börjar på en järnvägsstation, där syskonen Peter, Susan, Edmund och Lucy sitter och väntar på tåget för att resa till skolan. Men plötsligt kändes det som om någon drog i dem bakifrån och i nästa ögonblick försvann hela järnvägsstationen...
Istället stod barnen i ett busksnår. Kunde de ha kommit tillbaka till Narnia?
Eftersom Narnia har en egen tid, hade det gått hundratals år sedan barnen var där senast, förra hösten. Nu var mycket annorlunda. Människor hade erövrat landet och tystat djuren och träden och fördrivit dvärgar och fauner. Barnen ställs av lejonet Aslan inför uppgiften att jaga bort inkräktarna och upp sätta gammalnarniernas rättmätige ledare, prins Caspian, på tronen."… (mer)

En fantasyklassiker för barn och en introduktion till den tidlöst magiska värld som C. S. Lewis skrivit om i sina böcker om Narnia. Denna känns inte precis lika magisk eller medryckande; det verkar som om det mesta som står i boken bara gör det för att ge en förklaring till allt drt magiska i senare böcker. Och de behöver ingen förklaring. Visst finns här Lewis bekanta humor, barnsliga språk och övertydligt kristna budskap, men det hela känns bara som en utdragen och onödig introduktion till ett av de bästa fantasyvärldar som någonsin skapats. En bok att läsa om man vill veta mera, men inget måste för att kunna njuta av Lewis skapelse.… (mer)

Nu har jag för första gången läst något av C.S. Lewis. Dock inte Narnia, som vore det mest förväntade, ej heller hans science fiction, utan en längre utläggning om vad Lewis själv kallar den medeltida Modellen, vilken i princip kan identifieras med ett Kuhnskt paradigm: hela den världsbild som under medeltiden användes för att förstå vad som försiggick på kosmisk nivå.

En sådan kan egentligen knappast vara helt homogen genom tider och platser, men likväl kan man om man är kortfattad nog ändå ge en någorlunda rättvisande bild, inkluderande sfärernas rörelse, änglaskarornas hierarkier, människan och hennes själ (och hur denna opererar), bestar och andar, elementen och temperamenten. När syftet dessutom främst inte är att redogöra för modellen för dess egen skull (ett ämne intressant nog i sig själv), utan för att moderna människor bättre skall förstå vad det är de läser i medeltida dikter eller skådespel från renässansen – i synnerhet när de inte själva inser att de missförstår – så är de tvåhundra sidorna precis rätt längd.

Lewis är också en underhållande skribent, med förmågan till lagom drastiska liknelser och personligt tilltal, vilket gör läsandet till en än större glädje. Vill man lära sig mer om hur medeltidens människor tänkte och varför de skrev saker de skrev (inte för att de var galna, utan för att de utgick från andra premisser), så kan The discarded image varmt rekommenderas.

Första delen i C S Lewis trilogi om den rena andligheten i Universum och andliga korruptionen på planeten Jorden. Boken är hyllad av många kritiker och ställer också frågor. I detta fall hamnar huvudpersonen på Venus tillsammans med en mer skum "konkurrent" om de två första människorna på Venus, kanske som en slags Bibelns Eden återbesökt med huvudpersonens konkurrent i rollen som ormen i paradiset. Med huvudpersonen som försöker vara guds utsände. Eller hur det nu ska uttolkas. Fortsättes av Perelandra och "That hideous strength" (Vredens tid).… (mer)
