This volume goes beyond observations noting thematic connections between C.S. Lewis' theological writings and his imaginative fictions to probe the basic foundation of his conception of fiction and to advance the reader's understanding of the importance he granted to the imagination in perceiving truth. The book also explores the role George MacDonald (who Lewis said "baptized [his] imagination") played in the development of his theory of fiction. Walter Hooper and Ann Loades offer essays on questions of autobiography raised by "A Grief Observed"; Robert Holyer writes on the epistemology of "Till We Have Faces"; Frank Riga discusses dreams as conduits for the imagination; and Waldo Knickerbocker discusses Lewis' sense of Christianity as "a true fairy tale".
