Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

Introduction and commentary by Nathan Comfort Starr, Seabury Press: Religious Dimensions in Literature Series, 1968, First Printing

First published in 1965, this work is a retelling of the Cupid and Psyche story and was the last novel Lewis wrote in conjunction with his wife, Joy Davidman. The work is written from the perspective of Psyche’s older sister Orual as an accusation against the gods and then changes to acknowledge that the gods are lovingly present in human lives.

Association copy with Owen Barfield library label and inscribed to Owen Barfield and reads: “For Owen Barfield, gratefully Nathan Comfort Starr, Mary 13, 1972.”
