Description: C.S. Lewis was an academic at heart, a professor who felt entirely at home writing massive volumes on medieval literature.  (One such work runs to 700 pages!)  Yet Lewis is also one of the most widely-read authors of the 20th century, universally beloved by modern readers.  This class covers C.S. Lewis the paradox: easy to read, infinitely profound, author of children's literature, scholar of the Middle Ages, defender of the Christian faith.  Over the year, we will examine a broad array of Lewis's works from each genre, to learn how they all intersect.  Students will read a number of his works, roughly one per month, engage with those texts in creative projects, and critically examine his arguments and insights through essay writing.  Homework should take around 3 hours per week.  This class is equivalent to one high school credit of English.
