Published in the early 1950s, C. S. Lewis's seven Chronicles ofNarnia were proclaimed instant children's classics and havebeen hailed in The Oxford Companion to Children's Literatureas "the most sustained achievement in fantasy for children by a20th-century author." But how could Lewis (a formidable critic,scholar, and Christian apologist)conjure up the kind of adventuresin which generations of children (and adults) take such delight? Inthis engaging and insightful book, C. S. Lewis expert David C.Downing invites readers to join his vivid exploration of theChronicles of Narnia, offering a detailed look at theenchanting stories themselves and also focusing on theextraordinary intellect and imagination of the man behind theWardrobe. Downing presents each Narnia book as its own little wardrobe -each tale an opportunity to discover a visionary world of bustlingvitality, sparkling beauty, and spiritual clarity. And Downing'sexamination of C. S. Lewis's personal life shows how the content ofthese classic children's books reflects Lewis's love of wonder andstory, his affection for animals and homespun things, his shrewdobservations about human nature, along with his vast reading,robust humor, theological speculations, medieval scholarship, andarcane linguistic jokes. A fun glossary of odd and invented wordswill allow readers to speak with Narnian flair, regaling friendsand family with unusual words like cantrips, poltoonery, hastilude,and skirling. A masterful work that will appeal to both new andseasoned fans of Narnia, Into the Wardrobe offers a journeybeyond Narnia's deceptively simple surface and into its richlytextured and unexpected depths.

In the first decade of the new millennium, Jody Allen Randolph interviewed twenty-two leading Irish poets, artists, fiction writers and playwrights to create a record of how the makers of a culture saw their country as it moved into a new era. Her exploration was shadowed by intimations of unease; as economic collapse gathered pace, recurrent concerns gained a new urgency. What are Irish values? How have they changed? How do new cultural realities affect the old arts of language and image which have been so important in Irish tradition? In journeys across political divides and between languages, from Seamus Heaney and Nuala N í Dhomhnaill, deeply rooted in Irish inheritance,to African-Irish Joyce Akpotor; from Gerry Adams for whom when our future is settled, we will agree on our history', to the artist Dorothy Cross who brings an international perspective to her redefinitions of Irish imagery, Close to the Next Moment captures the conversations that are remaking a culture.

C S Lewis is widely known worldwide, but often enthusiasts are only aware of one part of his work - his children's stories, perhaps, but not his science fiction, or his literary criticism; his popular theology but not his work for the BBC during the Second World War. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it goes from The abolition of man - a book Lewis wrote in 1943 and described as 'almost my favourite' to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C S Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works and his life.
