About the author

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.

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 6reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by I had to purchase this book for a class. However, I really like that it has all the C.S. Lewis classics in one volume. The book is not heavy either so it's not a problem to carry in my backpack. I am going to keep this book for many years to come. 09/26/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by C. S. Lewis Signature Classics If you have never read these, (or if it has been years since you did), you will find C. S. Lewis' books Mere Christianity, Screwtape Letters, Miracles, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, A Grief Observered, and The Abolition of Man are timely for today! All these treasures are included in one paperback for the cheapest price you will find on the internet. Lewis' expert ability to comunicate Christian views in practical ways has never been surpassed. Read them, or read them again, and strengthen your faith! 10/08/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Treasure Thats Affordable Though the cover of the book is different from the one depicted here, the book is an overall great value. I can't tell you enough of how these works of C.S. Lewis are thought-provoking and seriously deep. Each work strikes a chord within the soul. 03/22/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Great Buy C.S. Lewis is one a the few classic authors who have had a tremendous impact on literature in the 20th century. One low price for many of C.S. Lewis's most important works. C.S. Lewis will challenge your presuppositions and make you think for yourself. This is a great collection for anyone looking to learn more about Christianity and for those looking to go deeper and learn more. I highly recommend it 08/31/2007
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A must read... This book is a very valuable buy since it has 7 of the most famous books written by C.S.Lewis. Having read through "Mere Christianity", I could say that C.S.Lewis is like the Apostle Paul of the 20th Century. His work is very profound and thought provoking. His background on aethism and his conversion into Christianity lay a powerful background to the book. Another one of the fabulous read would be "Screwtape Letters". (Working on reading the rest....) 01/30/2008
