This was the very first celebration of the Chronicles of Narnia (begun in 1955, before the final volume was published), and is still the only one of its kind. Furthermore, it is the only book about himself and his writing that C. S. Lewis ever praised.
The preface is by Walter Hooper. The introductory chapter is called Making Pictures. The three main chapters are Spoiled Goodness: Lewiss Concept of Nature, The Coming of the Lion: Lewiss Concept of God, and Possible Gods and Goddesses: Lewiss Concept of Man. The concluding chapter is called Weaving a Spell. END

Kathryn Lindskoog became a C. S. Lewis scholar in 1955 and has been publishing occasional books and articles about him ever since. In 1956 she won a scholarship to summer school at the University of London and asked Lewis if she could meet him. He invited her to have tea with him in the Royal Oxford Hotel, and she found him the friendliest, merriest person she had ever met. Seven of her nineteen books are about Lewiss life and works, and most of the others refer to him in one way or another. Lindskoog has given up college teaching and lecturing because of advanced multiple sclerosis. She lives in Orange, California, and still writes books and articles and publishes a quarterly newsletter called THE LEWIS LEGACY.Review:
C. S. Lewis in a handwritten note: ...I read it at once. You are in the centre of the target everywhere. For one thing, you know my work better than anyone else I've met: certainly better than I do myself. (I've no recollection whatever of The World's Last Night and can't imagine what it was about!) But secondly you (alone of the critics I've met) realize the connection or even the unity of all the books -- scholarly, fantastic, theological -- and make me appear a single author not a man who impersonates half a dozen authors, which is what I seem to most. This wins really very high marks indeed.
Edmund Fuller in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: An excellent exposition of the sinewy theology that underlies the Narnia tales.
Colin Manlove, in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA (Twaynes Masterwork Studies): For the main books on the CHRONICLES OF NARNIA we can start with Kathryn Lindskoog Lindskoogs success is in enriching and deepening our understanding of the implications of the Narnia stories. she shows how the books are part of a far larger fabric of imagery and ideas. It is small wonder that C. S. Lewis valued this book. END -- Publisher Comments
