Recently I sat down with David Bates of the Pints With Jack podcast to discuss Till We Have Faces. Readers will know that I have been working through Till We Have Faces with some detailed close readings and some guest spots. Over drinks, David and I discussed some of those articles:
The video is below. You can read more about the interview and find the audio-only versions in this link. Cheers to everyone at Pints With Jack, and make sure you check out the great podcasts in this season’s focus on C.S. Lewis’ most important work of literary fiction, Till We Have Faces.
I believe in open access scholarship. Because of this, since 2011 I have made A Pilgrim in Narnia free with nearly 1,000 posts on faith, fiction, and fantasy. Please consider sharing my work so others can enjoy it.
“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing.
This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box.
Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
Listened to the podcast and really enjoyed it! Will reread Til We Have Faces.
