Selected Literary Essays.

New York: Cambridge University, 1969. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Near Fine copy with an ink line to the fore-edge in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with two closed snags to the spine. Selected Literary Essays includes over twenty of C. S. Lewis’s most important literary essays, written between 1932 and 1962. The topics discussed in this volume range from Chaucer to Kipling, from "The literary impact of the authorized version" to "Psycho-analysis and literary criticism," to Shakespeare and Bunyan, and Sir Walter Scott and William Morris. Common to each essay, however, are the lively wit, the distinctive forthrightness, and the discreet erudition which characterize Lewis's best critical writing. Other works included in this uncommon collection are essays on John Donne, Jane Austen, Shelley, Dryden & Eliot, William Morris, Kipling, and other broader topics. Item #25792
