Michael Gilmour, PhD, McGill University, presents Rereading C. S. Lewis Fifty Years after His Death. Gilmour is the author of The Gospel According to Bob Dylan: The Old, Old Story for Modern Times.

C. S. Lewis the author is many things: wartime poet, scholar of Medieval and Renaissance literature, Christian apologist, author of children’s books, autobiographer, and theological fantasist. This lecture focuses on his 1945 novel That Hideous Strength, and explores ways it is emblematic of the Lewisian ‘canon’ as a whole.
