Acollection of interviews and essays from a group of distinguished scholars and bloggers writing on the theme of Lewis and women, in his life and writingsSexism in Narnia? Or "e;Screwtape"e;? Or among the Inklings? Critics have labelled C.S. Lewis a sexist, even a misogynist. Did the life and writing of the hugely popular British author and professor betray attitudes that today are unacceptable, even deplorable?
The younger Lewis was criticized for a mysterious living arrangement with a woman, but his later marriage to an American poet, Joy Davidman, became a celebrated love story. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien formed a legendary literary group, the Inklings but without women.
