C.S. Lewis commentary

Did C.S. Lewis ever exchange letters like Tolkien or explain to fans what he intended when he wrote things he did? Tolkien's mind is known regarding hias works because he exchanged letters and other information, but what about Lewis?

I really recommend reading the Letters of Lewis. I enjoyed it immensely! Most of Lewis' letters were to his father, to Warnie, or to Arthur Greeves. There are several explanations in the letters of "why he wrote what he wrote" in various books.

The Collected Letters is in three volumes (third volume just recently out) and is quite expensive.

There is also a nice little (much less expensive) collection of Lewis's letters to children, and a couple of other, less complete, collections of his letters to adults.
