(p.53) 3 Houses
C.S. Lewis Then and Now

Wesley A. Kort (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Houses are important as setting and metaphor in Lewis's fiction and theory. Houses join memories and aspirations. He understands a Christian's being in the world as like a child's exploratory and appreciative location in a large and complex house. He also viewed Christianity itself as a large, variegated, and accommodating house.

Keywords:   accommodation, aspirations, childhood, Christianity, future, houses, memories
