Today, November 22, 2008, is the 45th anniversary of the death of the wonderful writer Clives Staples Lewis...more commonly known, of course, as C.S. Lewis. He is author of such wonderful and varied works as The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce and non-fiction classics like Mere Christianity and The Problem of Pain and perhaps the most popular and well known of all, the children stories The Chronicles of Narnia. Something for every taste!
Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S.Lewis
