Interviews with C.S. Lewis?

Interviews with C.S. Lewis?

I'm trying to find interviews with C.S. Lewis. I found the one done by Sherwood Eliot Wirt in 1963, are there any others that I can view?

Welcome, Cab!

I don't know of any interviews online, but there is an interview between Lewis, Kingsley Amis, and Brian Aldiss from December 1962. It was transcribed by Aldiss and published in 1964. You can find it under the title 'Unreal Estates' in the Lewis essay collections Of Other Worlds, Of This and Other Worlds, or On Stories. If you can't find a copy of one of those, you can probably use Amazon's 'Search Inside' function to read the interview.

Hope this helps.

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.

That's what I'd have recommended too, Sven. What a great little window it is on 'Casual Lewis'. At one point Lewis says about a book:
"I thought it was pretty good. I only read it once; mind you, a book's no good to me until I've read it two or three times -- I'm going to read it again."

That almost sounds like something one of us lesser mortals might post on these forums.
