Essays: Triologue: Kepler, Twain, Lewis By S. Dorman
Paperback: $7.49
Ships in 3-5 business days
The Essays are comprised in three sections. The first is "neophyte papers." These four essays were written in the mid 1980s when I began thinking about CS Lewis on paper in my limited way.... More > The second section, "Familiarizing Papers," contains two essays written for the course in humanities. This got me thinking of a dialogue, here called a Triologue, between Johannes Kepler, CS Lewis, and Mark Twain. Also a third essay, on fictionalizing Lewis, was written after the fact of the novel and published in Mythprint #341. The third section, "The Triologue," is devoted to essays written specifically for the thesis paper; and its project which ultimately extrapolated into the Travelogue. The hope to produce "Fantastic Travelogue: Mark Twain and CS Lewis Talk Things over in The Hereafter" was itself the raison d'être for the thesis paper. One of these essays was published in Extrapolation, Spring 2007. See also the digital version at Smashwords and various other online venues.< Less
