Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.
Grade 3-5?Lawrie has successfully translated Lewis's introductory volume of the "Chronicles of Narnia" (HarperCollins) into a kind of elegant, Edwardian comic book. The 17 chapters of the original have been reduced to 7. Remarkably, this is a true abridgement of Lewis's writing, with his words, particularly the dialogue, faithfully preserved. Only the name of the great wolf who serves the wicked queen has been changed. Neatly framed speech balloons vie for space with hand-printed sections of descriptive paragraphs. The large, parchment-colored pages burst exuberantly with colorful drawings of the four children and the animals they meet beyond the wardrobe. Each one is framed with decorative columns, vines, borders, or flowering plants, appropriate to the adventures they enclose. Something is lost, of course, in the use of pictures on a page rather than mental pictures produced by reading the novel. But children who might never be drawn to the full-length book will certainly be attracted to this charming, action-filled version, and, as often happens, readers of the abridged story may well turn to the original to recapture their delight.?Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
