Clive Staples Lewis
was born in Belfast in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths and ancient legends recounted to him
by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen.
However, it was not until many years later as a professor at Cambridge University, that the faun was joined by an evil queen
and a magnificent lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, one of the best loved books of all
time. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed and the final title, The Last Battle, was published in 1956. C S Lewis
was a Fellow and Tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954
when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held
until his retirement.
