I am sorry that I do not know how to start a new topic. However, because Jules began talking about the Reading Circle, this seems an appropriate place to begin talking about the next 11 August Reading Circle. Jules can move this recommendation to a new topic, if he so chooses.

For a good analysis of this book, see Thomas Howard's Chapter Six "Till We Have Faces: The Uttermost Farthing" in C. S. Lewis Man of Letters (San Francisco: Ignatius, 1987)

Pulling this book from the beloved Lewis section of my bookshelves, I looked for any marginal annotations. My first was written upon beginning to reread the book on 23 October 2008. The quote in the first sentence of the third paragraph on page 8, "Fox... ashamed of loving poetry... I had to work... reading, writing and... philosophy in order to get a poem out of him." inspired my annotation, "I too love poetry, reading, writing and philosophy, and do not feel shame, but do keep this love hidden for the mockery it engenders."

Katie and Jules and other members of this site share this love, and here we do not have to keep it hidden.

Stay informed
