...the Renaissance novel, I mean. Does anyone know what his thoughts on it were? I was thinking about the difference between that (the bits of text I've read, anyway) and Perelandra... and Imagine... and so on, and so forth. I think Imagine was released after he died, but does anyone know what he thought about Utopia?

There are three pages about it in English Literature in the Sixteenth Century excluding Drama (now being printed with the title Poetry and Prose in the Sixteenth Century). Too much to quote at length, but it opens with this sentence:

C. S. Lewis wrote:In 1516 came the Utopia which, though it was written in Latin, is so good and has given rise to so many controversies that I should hardly be forgiven if I passed it over in silence.
