Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954. In ’54 he was elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University. He held that position until his retirement.
Mr. Lewis attracted new readers and reached his vast audience by writing over 30 popular books such as the Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce and The Silent Planet. His “Narnia” books have sold over 100 million copies and have been the basis for three major films.
CS Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and one of the most influential writers of his day.
