I just received my copy of the new Cambridge Companion to C. S. Lewis. I'm going to take my time reading it, but I'll post the contents below, and if anyone has a question on a specific chapter post it. I posted this on the Facebook group, too, which would probably be the best place to continue any discussion of the new book.

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.

No questions, but what's great about that list of contents is that it shows just how diverse Lewis' writings are.

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best -- " and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

I've got to get me a copy soon even if I have to borrow one from the library.
