About this title

Présentation de l'éditeur:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold" is a 1956 parallel novel by C. S. Lewis. It is a retelling of the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche, which had haunted Lewis all his life, and which is itself based on a chapter of "The Golden Ass" of Apuleius. The first part of the book is written from the perspective of Psyche''s older sister Orual, and is constructed as a long-withheld accusation against the gods. Although the book is set in the fictional kingdom of Glome, Greece is often invoked to give the story a setting in time, as well as to allow for an interplay between the Hellenistic, rationalistic world-view and the powerful, ''irrational'', and ''primitive'' one. The story is a re-telling of the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche, from the point of view of Orual, Psyche''s ugly sister (as she is seen in the usual telling). The first book begins as the complaint of an old woman who is bitter at the pain and injustice of the gods. "
