Quoth C.S. Lewis

"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."
– C.S. Lewis

I definitely find this to be true. I'd like to read something he's written other than the Narnia books - I never have.

Coaster,

I know nothing of the man, other than Anthony Hopkins portrayed him in Isaguro's "Remains of The Day," to which I used to do a bad Hannibal Lecter imitation during the trailer. The Chronicles of Narnia have been strictly regulated to my childhood and my son wants nothing to do with that series, as it is not anime.

Wasn't that movie called Shadowlands?

Cormac Brown said...

Secret Agent Flan,

I sit corrected, it was "Shadowlands" and what a tragic story that was with the bone cancer that took her away.
