Religion and Literature

Wednesday, 2 April 2003

The Religion and Literature talk I went to regarding C.S. Lewis’ Planetary Theme in the Chronicles of Narnia was quite good. Each book in the chronicles has a subtext filled with the oeuvre of a particular medieval planet. Apparently such cosmology was central to Lewis throughout his life. I’m having dinner with the speaker and my Tolkien prof late this evening, I hope the conversation will be good.

No one in my poetry class had anything to say about my latest. apparently it was too weird. the teacher went on this long rant about how it was a metaphor for literary history and the creative process. I guess that was sorta floating around in my head, especially since she does not want us to use archaic diction, that has been hassling me all semester. whatever.
