- 14 October, 3:00-5:00 at Glen Eyrie Castle: C. S. Lewis and the Myth of Love: Unveiling the Mysteries of Till We Have Faces
- Here’s the description of the Sunday Myth of Love event, from the Anselm page: On Sunday afternoon in Glen Eyrie’s Great Hall, Andrew Lazo will present a lecture that promises answers to the puzzles presented by C. S. Lewis’s sometimes maddening last novel, Till We Have Faces. This book has compelled and confounded readers since its publication in the 1950s. And while Lewis referred to this myth retold as “far and away my best book,” many of its secrets have remained hidden in the decades since it appeared. But for the last dozen years, Andrew has been digging into the depths of Till We Have Faces, and in the process he’s made startling discoveries, discoveries which help to bring the whole of Lewis’s thought and work into sharper focus. In unveiling much of what has remained hidden, Lazo has uncovered important clues to understanding the overarching, underlying meaning and message of Lewis’s life and work. In this talk, Andrew shares the results of his work.
C. S. Lewis: Life and Legacy, Philosopher, Fantasist, and “Mere” Christian Fifty-five years after his death, Clive Staple Lewis (1898-1963), Irish-born Oxford don, Cambridge professor, and best-selling author, still attracts and inspires readers and thinkers everywhere. In this absorbing daylong program, Lewis scholar Andrew Lazo offers insights into Lewis personal life, published works, and enduring appeal.
