Abstract:

"Sound scholarship is a treasure, and bright prose is a pleasure." "This book combines the best of both these worlds. It includes something to challenge, enrich, amaze, or amuse every reader of C. S. Lewis, George MacDonald, and Dante Alighieri." "Here are dozens of surprising aspects of the life and writings of C. S. Lewis, George MacDonald, and Dante. (George MacDonald loved the writings of Dante, and C. S. Lewis loved the writings of both Dante and MacDonald.) Contents range from the quick, surprising fun of "Who Is This Man?" to the practical, down-to-earth instruction of "C. S. Lewis's Free Advice to Hopeful Writers" and the adventurous scholarship of "Spring in Purgatory" and "Mining Dante.""--BOOK JACKET.
