About the Authors
  • Language - in its communicative and playful functions, its literary formations and its shifting meanings - is a perennially fascinating topic. C. S. Lewis's Studies in Words explores this fascination by taking a series of words and teasing out their connotations using examples from a vast range of English literature, recovering lost meanings and analysing their functions. It doubles as an absorbing and entertaining study of verbal communication, its pleasures and problems. The issues revealed are essential to all who read and communicate thoughtfully, and are handled here by a masterful exponent and analyst of the English language.

    • C. S. Lewis explores the lexical and historical nature of words in an entertaining and absorbing way
    • A still essential study for all those interested in language, meaning and communication
    • Includes such words as wit, free, sense, world and life
