About this book

Scholars have discussed the work of C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) for decades, but they have focused on Lewis's Christian and pagan allusions and have largely ignored his other important themes. This book is dedicated to Lewis's vision of our relationship to nature and the environment. Matthew T. Dickerson and David O'Hara examine The Chronicles of Narnia and the Ransom books, as well as The Great Divorce, The Abolition of Man, and Lewis's essays and personal correspondence, connecting his writing with that of authors more traditionally associated with environmentalism, such as Wendell Berry, Aldo Leopold, and Gary Snyder.
