:

<p>The characters, plots, and potent language of C. S. Lewis's novels reveal everywhere the modern writer's admiration for Dante's <i>Divine Comedy. </i> Throughout his career Lewis drew on the structure, themes, and narrative details of Dante's medieval epic to present his characters as spiritual pilgrims growing toward God. </p>

<p>Dante's portrayal of sin and sanctification, of human frailty and divine revelation, are evident in all of Lewis's best work. Readers will see how a modern author can make astonishingly creative use of a predecessor's material-in this case, the way Lewis imitated and adapted medieval ideas about spiritual life for the benefit of his modern audience. </p>

<p>Nine chapters cover all of Lewis's novels, from<i> Pilgrim's Regress</i> and his science-fiction to <i>The Chronicles of Narnia </i>and <i>Till We Have Faces.</i> Readers will gain new insight into the sources of Lewis's literary imagination that represented theological and spiritual principles in his clever, compelling, humorous, and thoroughly human stories.</p>
