Description

"C.S. Lewis and R.W. Emerson: Common Threads and Divergent Viewpoints" - Steven J. Smith

"Warren and Jack: Friends and Brothers" - Constance Rice

My paper is about Warren Lewis, C.S. Lewis’s older brother, and the impact Warren had on his brother’s life and writing and his important contribution to The Inklings. Warren Lewis is often overlooked by scholars or is spoken of only in regards to his struggle with alcoholism. As a brother and friend, he plays an integral part in C.S. Lewis’s life.

"The Chronicles of Narnia: The Exhibition - Using C.S. Lewis to Promote Science in the Movies" - Woody Wendling

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Exhibition is a touring exhibit of scenes, props, and costumes from the first two Narnia movies. The Exhibition has appeared in science museums throughout the United States. It is natural to link Narnia and science, as C.S. Lewis also write science fiction (the Ransom space trilogy) and critiqued scientism. The Exhibition begins with Lewis artifacts on loan from the Marion E. Wade Center. The awe-inspiring experience of entering Narnia through the wardrobe is surely the highlight in The Exhibition. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (LWW) section features the wardrobe and the witch, but not the lion. The LWW section gives prominence to Jadis’s deep magic, but completely omits the deeper magic of Aslan’s death (on Edmund’s behalf) and resurrection. Narnia: The Exhibition catches C.S. Lewis’s environmental vision, but misses his supernatural vision. It captures Lewis’s ecology, but leaves out his theology.
