The second book of Lewis's sci-fi trilogy, this is a sharp, sophisticated fantasy that deals with an old problem, temptation, in a new world, Perelandra. "Mr Lewis has a genius for making his fantasies livable".-The New York Times. Written during the dark hours immediately before and during the Second World War, C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which Perelandra is the second 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. In Perelandra, Dr. Ransom is recruited by the denizens of Malacandra, befriended in Out of the Silent Planet, to rescue the edenic planet Perelandra and its peace-loving populace from a terrible threat: a malevolent being from another world who strives to create a new world order, and who must destroy an old and beautiful civilization to do so.… (mer)

"As long as what you are afraid of is something evil, you may still hope that the good may come to your rescue. But suppose you struggle through to the good and find it is also dreadful? How if food turns out to be the very thing you can't eat and home the very place you can't live and your very comforter the person who makes you uncomfortable. Then, indeed, there is no rescue possible: the last card has been played. "

I first read this years ago, as a teenager, and it went entirely over my head. This time, I really connected with the story. This is the second volume of Lewis' "Space Trilogy", set in 1942 during WWII. While the Allies are fighting the Nazis on Earth, Dr. Ransom is called by Maleldil to go to Perelandra to prevent the evil that is consuming Earth from spreading there. To do so, he will need to engage in moral, spiritual, and ultimately mortal combat with the creature that has infiltrated Perelandra's defenses by concealing itself in the body of his old enemy, Dr. Weston. Lewis' descriptions of Perelandra's beauty are wonderfully vivid, as are his descriptions of the moral and spiritual corruption of the evil trying to invade it. Recommended. ( )

A Trilogia Cósmica criada por Lewis é o resultado de uma aposta entre o autor e o seu grande amigo J.R.R. Tolkien. Segundo relatos, a escolha dos temas foi decidida através do cara ou coroa. Lewis ficou com a viagem no espaço, e Tolkien com a viagem no tempo. Tolkien acabou por não cumprir a aposta, enquanto Lewis não parou até terminar a trilogia.
A famosa amizade entre os dois autores ficou eternizada pela criação do personagem principal, Elwin Ransom, professor e filólogo, como Tolkien. Nestas aventuras do Dr. Ransom pelo espaço encontramos criaturas mágicas, um mundo de encantos, batalhas épicas e revelações de verdades transcendentes.
Neste livro, o segundo da empolgante trilogia de ficção científica de C.S. Lewis, o doutor Ransom é chamado ao paradisíaco planeta de Perelandra, ou Vénus, que revela ser um mundo belíssimo, como um Éden. Ramson fica horrorizado, porém, ao descobrir que o seu antigo inimigo, o Dr. Weston, também chegou até ali e, mais uma vez, representa um perigo para o planeta que os hospeda e para a vida de Ransom. Enquanto Weston, dominado por forças do mal, tenta prejudicar Perelandra, Ransom empenha-se numa luta desesperada para salvar a inocência do planeta.

I first read this book in 2011 and enjoyed it then. I found it more meaningful the second time around, now that I am older, in the Perelandran sense. ( )

As I left the railway station at Worchester and set out on the three-mile walk to Ransom's cottage, I reflected that no one on that platform could possibly guess the truth about the man I was going to visit.
