Description

Fascinated by the myth of Cupid and Psyche throughout his life, C. S. Lewis wrote this, his last novel, to retell their story from the perspective of Psyche's sister, Orual: "I saw well why the gods do not speak to us openly, nor let us answer . . . Why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?" Lewis provides an engaging retelling of one of the most popular myths from antiquity with what The Saturday Review called "new meaning, new depths, new terrors." With his trademark insightfulness, Lewis reminds us of our own fallibility and the role of a higher power in our lives.
