C S Lewis is best known for Narnia and apologetic classics, but he also authored a highly popular adult science fiction trilogy following the interplanetary adventures of scholar Arthur Ransom. Professor David Downing offers a critical appraisal of these fascinating works.
A critical study of C.S. Lewis' Ransom Trilogywhich analyses Lewis' methods and meanings, concentrating on this trilogy but also including relevant secondary work. The study is developed through specific internal analysis of the three texts but also by the incorporation of details of Lewis' life. Lewis' literary scholarship and reasoned defence of Christian values incorporated into a network of analogies, echoes, and correspondences within the trilogy are also examined.
