Contents Memories. The tutor -- Magdalen, 1936-1939 -- Oxford, 1946 and after -- Reflections. Interplanetary voyaging -- Myth and magic -- Reason and romanticism -- The writer as scholar.
Summary This uniquely personal book, the fruit of a thirty-year friendship with C.S. Lewis, offers an intimate portrait of Lewis the tutor, scholar, and friend, along with new insights into his towering literary and scholarly achievement.
From his rare vantage point as student, friend, and colleague, John Lawlor provides an unforgettable account of studying under Lewis and an enchanting depiction of undergraduate life at Oxford between the wars. To round out his picture, Lawlor draws on his recollections of other associates of Lewis and offers an exposition of Lewis's science fiction and the Chronicles of Narnia.
C.S. Lewis: Memories and Reflections is illustrated with previously unpublished personal correspondence, annotations from Lewis's personal library, and a hitherto unrecorded photograph of a young Lewis newly returned to Oxford from the First World War.
