TFS 7, 1: A Portrait of a Literary Artist: The Pilgrim’s Regress

Feb 7, 2022    Rick Ganz

For Part I of Session #7: A Portrait of a Literary Artist (C.S. Lewis), we will discuss The Pilgrim’s Regress: An Allegorical Apology for Christianity, Reason, and Romanticism (1933). Walter Hooper, Lewis’ great Assistant and Literary Executor of all of Lewis’ works, writes: “Lewis’ first prose work, The Pilgrim’s Regress, was an attempt to explain the elusive experience he called JOY, and the part that it played in his conversion [to a humble acknowledgement of God, and eventually to “mere” Christianity].”
