Summary
All but two of the essays here first appeared in newspapers and magazines, and, although their subjects are wide-ranging, they all share an infusion of Lewis's characteristic sanity and persuasiveness. In those essays between 1940 and 1945, Lewis reflects on questions generated by the war: Democratic values, the need for an updated chivalry, and the cynicism of the modern soldier. Other essays examine the threats to educational and spiritual fulfillment, while "Sex in Literature" and "On Living in the Atomic Age" address literary censorship and our very human survival--issues debated even more passionately today than in Lewis's lifetime
