C. S. Lewis' adaptation of the Cupid and Psyche myth is particularly notable for its considerable deviations from the classical story which first appeared in Apuleius' The Golden Ass. In Lewis' version of this myth, Till We Have Faces, Lewis focuses on the sacrificial element of Psyche's marriage to Cupid-or, as Lewis renames him, the Shadowbrute. Lewis casts Psyche's sister, Orual, as the protagonist of the novel. Through Orual's perception of the marriage of Psyche to Cupid, Lewis' audience is forced to accept Lewis' defense of pre-Christian paganism. Lewis emphasizes the gory details of sacrifice to the gods in an attempt to legitimize bloody, violent pagan religions on the basis of their sincerity and power. He clearly and repeatedly asserts that the darker and the more amorphous the religion, the more true, holy, and compelling that religion is. Indeed, Lewis seems to suggest that the kind of bloody, savage religion described in Frazer's The Golden Bough is prototypical of Biblical ideas and foreshadows or lays the groundwork for Christianity. Most notable is Lewis's insistence that transformation of Psyche and Orual into divine figures necessitates violence. The Psyche of Till We Have Faces is largely reminiscent of Lewis' character Lucy Pevensie of The Chronicles of Narnia in that both Psyche and Lucy both embrace a participatory epistemology; both Psyche and Lucy participate with the god and accept that their intense longing for the god denotes truth. In contrast, Orual actively insists on disbelief, much like the dwarves of Lewis' The Last Battle, because of her refusal to participate in pure, sacrificial love. As a result, Orual is imprisoned by her own consuming, selfish love for Psyche.

The first study of C.S. Lewis to offer a detailed examination of "Till We Have Faces," Peter J. Schakel's book is also the first to explore the tension between reason and imagination that significantly shaped Lewis' thinking and writing. Schakel begins with a close analysis of "Till We Have Faces" which leads the readers through the plot, clarifying its themes and it discusses structure, symbols and allusions. The second part of the book surveys Lewis' works, tracing the tension between reason and imagination. In the works of the thirties and forties reason is in the ascendant; from the early fifties on, in works such as the Chronicles of Narnia, there is an increased emphasis on imagination - which culminates in the fine "myth retold," "Till We Have Faces." Imagination and reason are reconciled, finally in the works of the early sixties such as "A Grief Observed" and "Letters to Malcolm." PETER J. SCHAKEL is Professor of English at Hope College, Holland, MI. "This book is what Lewis scholarship ought to be. It is the most thoughtful, careful Lewis study yet." - Peter Kreeft "Reason and Imagination" is a remarkable achievement, literary criticism that is both wise and moving." - Margaret Hannay "Peter Schakel brings to C. S. Lewis scholarship what has often been lacking, namely rigorous scholarly method and real critical detachment. His study of "Till We Have Faces" is a major contribution to Lewis studies." - Thomas Howard

Have you ever read or tried to read Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold and wondered what it was all about?Not every Lewis reader is a Lewis scholar. Most pick up one of his stories or essays out of curiosity, not with academic intent nor with the hope of reading all of his works. After teaching this novel for a decade, I determined to write a guide that would help any reader fully appreciate C.S. Lewis's final, and favorite, work of fiction. In Till We Have Faces, Lewis paints an unexpected picture of redemption. As Orual relates her selective memoir, she finds that her questions about the gods fall away. While Lewis's retelling brings an unusual completion to the original Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche, this companion is a blend of summary and commentary that brings greater understanding of the characters, symbolism, and implied Christian themes outside of a classroom discussion.www.ThyLyre.com

Religious discourse has become alien to the secular and skeptical western societies of the twentieth century. There is real discomfort when religious discourse appears either in the popular press or in society. But even in a secular society, there is still a psychological need (one might even use the stronger word will), if not to believe, then at least to hope. Dr. Filmer states this need is met in the literature of fantasy.

C. S. Lewis embodied the Christian mind because he saw the world as a coherent unity. His writing consistently pursued the good, the true, and the beautiful. He used nonfiction to point out the reasonableness of Christianity and used his fiction to create compelling illustrations that make faith in Christ an obvious and attractive conclusion. This book explores the Christian mind of C. S. Lewis across the spectrum of the genres he worked in. With contributors from diverse disciplines and interests, the volume illuminates the many facets of Lewis's work. The Christian Mind of C. S. Lewis assists readers to read Lewis better and also to read other works better. The overarching goal is, just as Lewis would have desired, to help people see Christ more clearly in the world and to be more like Christ.

Word and Story has broken new ground by enlisting well-known scholars in the examination of Lewis's ideas about language and narrative, both as stated in theory and as exemplified in practice. Never before has such clear, significant, and thorough work in these areas been brought together in one place. This compilation of sixteen essays demonstrates how an awareness of Lewis's ideas about language and narrative is essential to a full understanding and appreciation of his thought and works. The contributors examine Lewis's poetry, The Dark Woods, Studies in Words, and other works that have so far received little attention, in addition to more familiar parts of the Lewis canon. By approaching Lewis primarily as an artist and theorist, not just a Christian apologist, these essays offer new insights into his creative imagination, critical acumen, and his craftsmanship as a writer. One comes away from this book with a fresh vision and with heightened expectation, eager to return to Lewis's works.
