Summary

Summary

Here are dozens of surprising aspects of the life and writings of C. S. Lewis, George MacDonald, and Dante. (George MacDonald loved the writings of Dante, and C. S. Lewis loved the writings of both Dante and MacDonald.) Contents range from the quick, surprising fun of "Who Is This Man?" to the practical, down-to-earth instruction of "C. S. Lewis's Free Advice to Hopeful Writers" and the adventurous scholarship of "Spring in Purgatory" and "Mining Dante".


Author Notes

Kathryn Lindskoog plunged into an independent academic-honors project on C. S. Lewis in 1954, met him in 1956, & has been writing & teaching about him ever since. Although crippled with progressive multiple sclerosis, she has taught literature courses at several colleges as well as New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary & Fuller Seminary. Lewis originally opened the door to George MacDonald & Dante for her, & that has now led to this extraordinary array of discoveries about all three.
