The C. S. Lewis Chronicles Summary


The C. S. Lewis Chronicles: The Indispensable Biography of the Creator of Narnia, Full of Little-Known Facts, Events and Miscellany by Colin Duriez

C S Lewis (1898-1963) is known around the world for his beloved and classic series "The Chronicles of Narnia", which includes "The Lion", the "Witch and the Wardrobe". One of the greatest writers and thinkers of modern times, he was an eminent scholar, who taught at Oxford and Cambridge, and was a close friend of J R R Tolkien. "The C S Lewis Chronicles" takes a refreshingly different and highly illuminating approach to the life, thought and work of this extraordinary man. It is both a greatly accessible and authoritative biography of Lewis, reconstructing his life and times in minute chronological detail - as well as an utterly intriguing and entertaining collection of little-known Lewis and Narnia miscellany and trivia. A biography like no other, it provides invaluable and detailed insight into Lewis' remarkable personal, creative, spiritual and intellectual life and legacy, and is the perfect companion for every reader who cherishes his timeless work.

The C. S. Lewis Chronicles Reviews


'With his usual thorough research, Duriez offers an in-depth look at Lewis' everyday life from his formative years to his final ones... If ever a biography deserved to be called "The Life and Times", this is the one.' David C Downing, author of Into the Wardrobe 'Duriez's C. S. Lewis Chronicles may employ the most unorthodox of biographical methods in getting there, but it delivers one of the most intimate and satisfactory pictures of C. S. Lewis that I have ever seen. I revelled in it and regard it as almost jolly as actually being in the same room with him' Phyllis Tickle Author of The Divine Hours and The Shaping of a Life 'Colin Duriez sheds new light, opens new perspectives, and brings fresh insight to the life of a man who has deeply enriched, and continues to enrich, the lives of others. This book incisively charts the journey of a lifetime' Brian Sibley Author of C.S. Lewis Through the Shadowlands
