About the author

Biography of York, Michael

Michael York, May 27, 1942 - Michael York was born in Fulmer, England, on May 27, 1942. He performed on stage with the National Youth Theatre in London and on international tours. He also belonged to the Oxford University Dramatic Society, having graduated Oxford in 1964. He was also a member of the Dundee Repertory, and Laurence Olivier's National Theater Company - where he worked with Franco Zeffirelli, who gave him his film debut as Lucentio in "Taming of the Shrew" in 1967 and his breakthrough role as Tybalt in "Romeo and Juliet" in 1968. He first appeared onscreen in "The Mind Benders" in 1962, and got his first good film role in "Accident" in 1967. He also appeared on TV earning acclaim for his portrayal of Jolyon in "The Forsyte Saga" in 1967. Perhaps York's best role was the part of Brian Roberts in "Cabaret" in 1972, followed by Count Andrenyi in "Murder on the Orient Express" in 1974 and D'Artagnan in several Musketeers films.

Michael York has starred in over 50 TV movies, continued stage work, starred on Broadway, made many spoken word recordings and written and lectured internationally. His autobiography, published in 1993 was titled "Accidentally on Purpose". He was also a recipient of the O.B.E., or Officer of the British Empire.

Biography of Lewis, C. S.

C. S. (Clive Staples). Lewis, "Jack" to his intimates, was born on November 29, 1898 in Belfast, Ireland. His mother died when he was 10 years old and his lawyer father allowed Lewis and his brother Warren extensive freedom. The pair were extremely close and they took full advantage of this freedom, learning on their own and frequently enjoying games of make-believe. These early activities led to Lewis's lifelong attraction to fantasy and mythology, often reflected in his writing.

He enjoyed writing about, and reading, literature of the past, publishing such works as the award-winning The Allegory of Love (1936), about the period of history known as the Middle Ages. Although at one time Lewis considered himself an atheist, he soon became fascinated with religion. He is probably best known for his books for young adults, such as his Chronicles of Narnia series. This fantasy series, as well as such works as The Screwtape Letters (a collection of letters written by the devil), is typical of the author's interest in mixing religion and mythology, evident in both his fictional works and nonfiction articles.

Lewis served with the Somerset Light Infantry in World War I; for nearly 30 years he served as Fellow and tutor of Magdalen College at Oxford University. Later, he became Professor of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University. C.S. Lewis married late in life, in 1957, and his wife, writer Joy Davidman, died of cancer in 1960. He remained at Cambridge until his death on November 22, 1963.
