C. S. Lewis's List: The Ten Books That Influenced Him Most
Edited by David Werther and Susan Werther
Werther and Werther edit this volume about the literary influences on C. S. Lewis, covering ten books selected by the author himself in 1962. A foreword and introduction offer reflection on the expected and unexpected inclusions as well as brief commentary on the general shape of Lewis' faith and philosophy in light of his list. A variety of contributors then discuss the ten works from MacDonald, Chesterton, Virgil, Herbert, Wordsworth, Otto, Boethius, Boswell, Williams, and Balfour, probing their themes and connection to Lewis' work.
