C. S. Lewis challenges fellow scholar E. M. W. Tillyard on one of the most intriguing questions involving writers and writing. Is a work of imaginative literature primarily influenced by the author or by the subject matter?
Lewis argues that the author’s own personality and biography has little to no impact on the writing, while Tillyard contends the opposite: that the author’s own imagination and story have an indelible influence on a piece of work. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Lewis, C. S. (Clive Staples)
Clive Staples or C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) was a British literary scholar and novelist. He was a fellow of Magdalen College, a prestigious College at Oxford University. His strong religious background influenced such books as "The Problem of Pain" and "The Screwtape Letters". He is better known for his adult science fiction trilogy: "Out of a Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hideous Strength". This series is heavily influenced by Christian thinking and was inspired by his friendship and association with fellow writers J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Williams. But perhaps his best known stories belong to a series of children's books known as the Chronicles of Narnia which begins with "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe". The series is peppered with Christian allegory and ethics and rates among the most important writing for children in the 20th century.
