The famous "Space Trilogy" of C.S Lewis deals with what he saw as the dehumanizing trends in contemporary science fiction. The first book, Out of the Silent Planet, was apparently written following a conversation with his friend J.R.R. Tolkien about these trends. Lewis's main character Elwin Ransom is based in part on Tolkien, a fact to which Tolkien alludes in his letters. The second novel, Perelandra, depicts a new Garden of Eden on the planet Venus, a new Adam and Eve, and a new "serpent figure" to tempt Eve. The story can be seen as an account of what might have happened if the terrestrial Adam had defeated the serpent and avoided the Fall of Man, with Ransom intervening in the novel to "ransom" the new Adam and Eve from the deceptions of the enemy. The third novel, That Hideous Strength, develops the theme of nihilistic science threatening traditional human values, embodied in Arthurian legend. Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was a British novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic and lay theologian. He is best known for his fictional work, especially The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Space Trilogy

This study concerns the intertextual relationship between Edmund Spenser, author of The Faerie Queene and C.S. Lewis, author of the space trilogy- Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, and That Hideous Strength. The volume explores the theory of intertextual criticism including its relationship to the ideas of C.S. Lewis about creativity and originality. The volume then explores how Lewis's study of Spenser informed his character as well as his creative writing. The paper examines closely Lewis's transposition of Spenser's scheme of virtues and his presentation of Arthur in the development of his protagonist Ransom. Two other areas in which Lewis adapts Spenser are in the depiction of women and the representation of evil.

Sanford Schwartz offers a penetrating new reading of Lewis's celebrated Space Trilogy. Taken together, Schwartz's readings call into question Lewis's self-styled image as a "dinosaur" out of step with the main currents of modern thought. Far from a simple struggle between an old-fashioned Christian humanism and a newfangled heresy, Lewis's Space Trilogy should be seen as the searching effort of a modern religious apologist to sustain and enrich the former through critical engagement with the latter.
