I have tremendous respect for Lewis' intellect, gift of words and imagination. I also struggle with his views on women, war, and religion. This was my second reading of "Till We Have Faces" after an interval of many years, and I still found it to be dark, unpleasant and difficult. There is something deeply disturbing and more than a little perverse about Lewis' first-person female POV. There isn't much left that's recognizable as the myth of Cupid and Psyche, but it's easy to imagine that there is a great deal of Lewis's own complex and troubled psyche, too much for comfort.
