Lectures or Books about C.S. Lewis?

Postby Valiant_Nymph » May 05, 2018 8:26 am

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a good bibliography and/or lectures about C.S. Lewis and his work. Can anyone recommend anything? :)

And I should say I've read Lewis' own autobiography, Surprised by Joy, already :)

The Narnian by Alan Jacobs is a pretty good bibliography. I read it a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I've also heard C.S. Lewis - A Life by Alister McGrath is a good one, but I haven't read it yet.

Not sure this fits in with what you are looking for, but have you ever listened to any lectures given by C.S. Lewis. There are only a few surviving, but it is wonderful to hear his voice! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYoU5_MQOU0&t=279s

Hi Valiant, just want to clarify - do you want a biography of Lewis (his life) or a bibliography (a list of books about him) ?

For biography, I recommend George Sayer's one,

For bibliography, a good place to start is the website Into the Wardrobe.

Hi Coracle,

Either would be good. I will check out both those recommendations! Thanks :)
