Format: Hardcover
Lewis himself thought it unimportant, and even wrong, to be too curious about the private life of an author, as if you could work backwards into the "real" meaning of an author's writing through some sort of half-baked Freudian analysis (uh, does Wilson's book come to mind?!). Fortunately this book does not attempt to do so, since it is not really about is private life, but rather various angles of his public, mainly academic, life at Oxford and Cambridge. Of course personal tidbits are there, and they are quite enlightening and usually humorous, but you won't find the deep dark secret or alter ego that too many readers become obsessed with. Nor does the book paint a rosy picture in a hagiographic tone. It is just first-hand accounts of those who knew Lewis in varying degrees of intimacy at various stages of his life, some longer than others, showing that his life, like any other, is marked by the quotidian quality of normality. The only difference is that he was a genius with a rare talent for articulation and clear thinking, and his heart was kind; Sort of like a Spock with a sense of humor and a faith in God.

Here you find Lewis the frustrated poet, Lewis the analytical machine who argued for the joy of debate like his hero Johnson, Lewis the Inkling, Lewis the privately charitable (giving huge sums of money away to people he barely knew, widows in particular), Lewis the absent-minded Chair, Lewis the man of infinite memory recall, Lewis the scholar and popular lecturer, Lewis the godfather, Lewis the theologian unpopular with his colleagues for it, Lewis the tutor, Lewis the defender of Truth, Lewis the literary scholar, etc. Each essay has its own style, some better than others, some longer than others.

Enjoyed this book edited by Dr. Poe and his daughter Rebecca Whitten Poe. I found it to be a very interesting book about C. S. Lewis. A first hand look at his academic and work portion of his life. Mainly about his academic life at Oxford and Cambridge.
I find Dr. Poe an interesting author as well, as he is a Christan scholar and a relative of Edgar Allen Poe.
I've met both he and his daughter at Edger Allen Poe 100th birthday remembrance last year. Charming people.
