Trivia / C. S. Lewis

  • He Also Did: Lewis's fiction and Christian writings have a much wider readership than his works of academic literary scholarship.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: It wasn't until after Lewis published his autobiography Surprised By Joy that he wound up quite unexpectedly finding romance late in life and getting married... to a woman named Joy.
  • Ho Yay: Deconstructed in The Four Loves, making the point that those who perpetually see homosexuality in Heterosexual Life-Partners have made the mistake of thinking that every close emotional bond between adults is sexual (a key theme of the book is that there are different kinds of affection and we shouldn't confuse them.)
