C. S. Lewis – 50 Jahre nach seinem Tod- Werk und Wirkung zwischen Huldigung und Kritik


Edited By Dieter Petzold

«Inklings» nannte sich eine Gruppe von Schriftstellern und Geisteswissenschaftlern in Oxford, deren bekannteste Mitglieder J.R.R. Tolkien und C.S. Lewis waren. Die Inklings-Gesellschaft e.V. widmet sich seit 1983 dem Studium und der Verbreitung der Werke dieser und ihnen nahestehender Autoren sowie der Analyse des Phantastischen in Literatur, Film und Kunst allgemein. Ihre Jahrestagungen werden in Jahrbüchern dokumentiert. Dieser Band enthält zehn Vorträge der Tagung C.S. Lewis – 50 Jahre nach seinem Tod, die 2013 in Aachen stattfand, um eine Einschätzung des Werks des Schriftstellers, Literaturwissenschaftlers und Laientheologen Lewis und seiner Wirkung vorzunehmen, sowie fünf weitere Beiträge und zahlreiche Rezensionen.
«Inklings» was the name of a group of Oxford scholars and writers; its best-known members were J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. The German Inklings-Gesellschaft, founded in 1983, is dedicated to the discussion and dissemination of the works of these authors and of writers commonly associated with them and to the study of the fantastic in literature, film and the arts in general. The proceedings of the annual Inklings conferences are being published in yearbooks. This volume contains ten papers presented at the 2013 conference on C.S. Lewis – 50 years after his death in Aachen that attempted a re-evaluation of the author, literary scholar and lay theologian Lewis and an assessment of his impact. In addition, there are five general articles and numerous reviews.

Fabelhafte Essays zur fantastischen Literatur

Wolfe, Gary K. Evaporating Genres: Essays on Fantastic Literature. Middletown, CT: Wesleyan UP, 2011. xv + 260 pp., $ 27,95.

When an established scholar publishes a collection of his essays he has either run out of new ideas and is in desperate need of a new book or, looking back, recognizes recurrent themes in his writings and uses his experience to re-evaluate his earlier findings. With Gary K. Wolfe’s collection of essays on fantastic literature, it is certainly the latter. Wolfe himself is an established scholar in the field of fantastic literature, who received both the Pilgrim Award from the Science Fiction Research Association and the Distinguished Scholarship Award from the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts. In addition, he is an avid reviewer of science fiction, a fact which keeps his academic writings close to the texts themselves.
