The Fame of C. S. Lewis

A Controversialist's Reception in Britain and America

Stephanie L. Derrick

  • Considers the growth of C. S. Lewis's international fame by comparing the contrasting patterns of reception in Britain and the USA
  • Argues that American readers did not appreciate Lewis's literary and cultural context
  • Offers insight into his posthumous reputation, highlighting the manipulation of his legacy by the C. S. Lewis Estate and the evolution of rival portraits of Lewis as a Christian apologist and a children's author
