Item description for C. S. Lewis: Writer, Dreamer, and Mentor by Lionel Adey...

Examines the life of the eminent British writer and scholar, and suggests that his extraordinary range and variety of writing was due to his many personal, literary, and intellectual influences

Publishers Description
From early childhood, C. S. Lewis engaged the world around him primarily through the medium of books. He read voraciously, and his own writing covers a broad range of genres. This new study by Lionel Adey is unique in its attempt to trace the development of C. S. Lewis as a maker and reader of books. Adey shows how the two sides of Lewis's personality, the "Dreamer" and the "Mentor," affected his writing in its various modes: literary history and criticism, fiction for adults and for children, poetry, essays and addresses, and letters. Adey also discusses the formative biographical events in Lewis's life and offers an estimate of Lewis's achievement and legacy as a writer.

Reviews - What do customers think about C. S. Lewis?

Short and Sweet  Jan 22, 2004
While the editorial reviews suggest this does not offer anything new, and that may very well be the case if you are familiar with all of the materials available on Lewis, it seems to me that this book was a short and sweet review of the essential elements of information on Lewis' works. A summary of such works as "The Allegory of Love" in four pages can help someone even after having read Allegory. This applies to other writings as well. In that respect, this may not offer much that is new, but it offers a very handy review of what Lewis was about in a way that reduces the work it would normally take to find this out.
