Till We Have Faces

Till We Have Faces

Lewis, C.S.

C.S. Lewis masterfully retells the myth of Cupid and Psyche from the ancient Roman novel Metamorphoses. He transforms the story into a skewering examination of idolatry, victim mentality, envy, loss, grief, guilt, and eventual conversion. Both Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien regarded this his best work. 

Grades 9 and up

Lewis was born in Ireland and loved Irish, Norse, and Greek mythology. To learn more about Irish myths, see Irish Studio's Cartoon Success
