Summary Sections one and two of this book analyze C. S. Lewis's eleven novels, showing how Lewis counters the growing cult of the ugly and helps restore a clearer understanding of the nature of good and evil. Sections three and four turn to Lewis's non-fiction works to assess what advice Lewis can give educators at all levels who would steer their students away from chronological snobbery and values-free education toward a true re-engagement with the past. The book concludes with a commentary on Screwtape's Letters that exposes what Satan's main temptation tactics have been since the 1960s and a bibliographical essay of books by and about Lewis.--From publisher's description.
Subject Lewis, C. S. (Clive Staples), 1898-1963 -- Criticism and interpretation.
