The characters, plots, and potent language of C. S. Lewis s novels reveal everywhere the modern writer s admiration for Dante s "Divine Comedy. " Throughout his career Lewis drew on the structure, themes, and narrative details of Dante s medieval epic to present his characters as spiritual pilgrims growing toward God.

Dante s portrayal of sin and sanctification, of human frailty and divine revelation, are evident in all of Lewis s best work. Readers will see how a modern author can make astonishingly creative use of a predecessor s material in this case, the way Lewis imitated and adapted medieval ideas about spiritual life for the benefit of his modern audience.

Nine chapters cover all of Lewis s novels, from" Pilgrim s Regress" and his science-fiction to "The Chronicles of Narnia "and "Till We Have Faces." Readers will gain new insight into the sources of Lewis s literary imagination that represented theological and spiritual principles in his clever, compelling, humorous, and thoroughly human stories.
