Till We Have Faces . . . Or Not?
I've been looking at adding another work to my British literature class. I came across this novel published by C. S. Lewis in the 1950's. It reminds me of the modern fascination with retold fairy tales with some more philosophy and a bit of Lewis' lecturing thrown in. I think we could have some good discussion about the true motivations of all of our behaviors, based on the choices of the "ugly stepsister." Anyway, I am intrigued and would like to try it out this year. The only thing holding me back? Getting 30 copies of the book. I'm not sure I will have the funds for it. But, I would sure like to give it a try.
