Correlation to other Lewis works

Postby ransomed » 29 Oct 2009, 20:24

I think I read somewhere that THS contains themes found in The Abolition of Man (I think that was the book). I haven't read Abolition, but I was wondering if anyone knows if OOTSP or Perelandra correlate to any of Lewis's other works in a similar way.

Out of the Silent Planet contains themes from The Allegory of Love. Perelandra contains themes from Preface to Paradise Lost.

Thanks. Haven't read either of those, so I'll have to check them out. Any idea where to find the preface?

It's a separate volume, ISBN 0195003454.

Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

My son bought me the triology for a gift, because he knew that I liked Lewis. I read the first one right away, but then had things happen and hadn't read the others. I am starting with the first one OOTSP again and intend to read all three so that I might have some semi-intelligent insights to add to the discussion.
