ANGL 537 C. S. Lewis: Author, Apologist, and Anglican


This course will examine selected writings of C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) with special attention to the Anglican character of his work. It will begin with Lewis's philosophical arguments against naturalism (including consideration of Elizabeth Anscombe's critique), and then consider his thought on the Trinity, Incarnation, ethics, gender, war, eschatology, and the spiritual life. It will conclude with analysis his last two works of fiction, The Last Battle (for children) and Till We Have Faces (for adults), both published in 1956.
