„Unii oameni cred că am început să scriu basme întrebându-mă cum le-aş putea spune copiilor ceva despre creştinism; apoi mi-am ales basmul ca unealtă, am strâns informaţii despre psihologia copiilor şi am hotărât pentru ce categorie de vârstă să scriu, am întocmit o listă de adevăruri creştine fundamentale şi am făurit «alegorii» care să le exprime concret. Toate astea sun ...more

„N-ai să găseşti o cană de ceai destul de mare sau o carte destul de lungă cât să-mi fie pe potrivă” (CS Lewis). O carte care începe cu un asemenea citat poartă cu sine promisiunea unei lecturi împlinite. Cartea – o colecţie de eseuri – este un demers recuperator al Poveştii, o reabilitare a ei într-o lume postmodernă lipsită de fascinaţia mirării, secătuită de lucrurile spiritului şi în căutare de semnificaţie. Lumea poveştilor „pare a fi existat cu mult înainte ca noi să dăm peste ea”, cu pers ...more

Basmul a început să fie din ce în ce mai exclus din viețile noastre. A trăi pe calea basmului a devenit pentru cei mai mulți un soi de ancorare defectuoasă în anii copilăriei. Cred totuși că datorăm basmelor întreaga plasă a destinului nostru, țesută până acum din valorile cunoscute întâi din povești, căci am invadat realitatea prin intermediul acestora. Încă trăim un basm, pe care îl negăm însă. În fața acestuia ne acoperim ochii, privind la viață ca printr-o vată densă, în care abia recunoaște ...more

Interesting to see more "unedited" Lewis: wordy and sometimes repeating examples, but his clear thoughts always stand out.

I admire his viewpoint on writing for children by respecting them and writing what the author himself/herself enjoys and has in common with the audience. Also liked the idea that adulthood shouldn't abandon the joys of childhood, only add to them new pleasures (referring mainly but not exclusively to readership).

There's a brief dialogue at the end that was transcribed from a

Must read for those who read and write fiction, and who love literature. My favorite essay was The Parthenon and the Optative--great food for thought for a future English teacher!

I absolutely ADORE this collection of essays about the lingering power of fantasy and story . . .
