C. S. Lewis and the “300″

March 11th, 2007

This is not panache; it is our nature.” —C. S. Lewis, “Learning in War Time.” Thermopylae is the famous battle […]

CSL, Friendship, Joseph Epstein

February 21st, 2007

Joseph Epstein’s wry book, Friendship: An Expose, cites Lewis’s The Four Loves several times, and carries onward a friendly debate about whether men and women can, indeed, enjoy a friendship with no sexual intentions or tensions in the modern world (CSL says, no). The whole book, like most of Epstein’s essays, is worth your time, […]

Some Quick Takes: A 2nd Viewing of Narnia, A Push Back at the Elitist Left, and an Invitation

January 25th, 2006

A SECOND LOOK I waited almost six weeks, but I went back to see LWW again in the theatres this past weekend. I surprised by how much more I enjoyed it without my critical lenses on–focusing on virtues rather than shortcomings. I was also surprised by how many people were there–such a healthy crowd, a […]

King Kong’s Kolossal Kinetic Kollapse

December 18th, 2005
