REVIEW:
C.S. Lewis is probably best remembered as the author of the Chronicles of Narnia series but he was also very well-known as a scholar and theologian. This site offers an outline of Lewis's life, as well as a biographical sketch, news and events, a frequently asked questions section, and bibliographies of his literary works. The multimedia section contains an extensive collection of photographs and a collection of audio clips. The clips feature notables such as Claire Bloom and Anthony Quayle reading from his work and Lewis talking about Christian love. Other resources include links to some of Lewis's contemporaries, other Lewis-related links, and an index of papers, speeches, etc. that have been written about the man and his work.
