Synopsis

The Imaginative World of C.S. Lewis is a fascinating study of the ideas of one of the most influential Christian authors and advocates of this century. In this engaging work, Mineko Honda demonstrates how Lewis participated in objective Reality through the writing of his imaginative stories and fantasies. She begins her study with a discussion of Lewis' idea of imagination and then considers the style of his apologetic works. She goes on to examine Lewis' attitudes as an imaginative author, focusing on how he relates himself to the world of objective Reality. In an analysis of The Great Divorce and Till We Have Faces, Honda explores Lewis' notion that human beings can perceive Reality through imagination and ultimately attain it and become a part of it in heaven. Full of important insights on Lewis' imaginative works, this book will appeal to Lewis enthusiasts or anyone seeking reassurance that their lives are meaningfully connected to a higher reality.

Mineko Honda is Associate Professor in English in the International Politics and Economics Department at Nishogakusha University in Japan.
