In this immortal story of two human princesses-one excellent and one ugly C.S. Lewis revamps the old-style legend of Cupid and Psyche into a suffering bit of contemporary fiction.

Inside this book
I am old now and have not much to fear from the anger of gods. I have no husband nor child, nor hardly a friend, through whom they can hurt me. My body, this lean carrion that still has to be washed and fed and have clothes hung about it daily with so many changes, they may kill as soon as they please. The succession is provided for. My crown passes to my nephew. Being, for all these reasons, free from fear,
I will write in this book Till We Have Faces what no one who has happiness would dare to write. I will accuse the gods, especially the god who lives on the Grey Mountain.
That is, I will tell all he has done to me from the very beginning as if I were making my complaint of him before a judge. But there is no judge between gods and men, and the god of the mountain will not answer me. Terrors and plagues are not an answer. I write in Greek as my old master taught it to me. It may someday happen that a traveler from the Greek lands will again lodge in this palace and read the book. Then he will talk of it among the Greeks, where there is great freedom of speech even about the gods themselves. Perhaps their wise men will know whether my complaint is right or whether the god could have defended himself if he had made an answer.
Reviews of Till We Have Faces
1. Rating 4/5
Till We Have Faces is great C. S. Lewis. Lewis’ correction of the Myth of Cupid and Psyche is very well written in connecting with a style that describes his other fiction. It’s an extraordinary story, one that additionally imparts affectionately and delicately the purposelessness and illogic of those perspectives that provide a reason to feel ambiguous about God’s equity or kindness. Like his companions Tolkien and Williams, Lewis adored the power of fantasy, and this specific legend has a personal point to make about making one think straight. Like a portion of his different works, this story plot is stopped before what we may wish to be a wonderful end.
This also fits into one of Lewis’ life topics: each individual has a profound ravenous yearning for that ideal spot or situation where life will be satisfied and delight total. “We have all had our fantasy of some other land, some other world, some other method for giving the prizes which would get us as the winners… ” In this life, much the same as the story, we can never fully arrive. Nor would we be able to even very envision what that ideal experience will resemble.
Meanwhile, none of us can identify with God, meet him face to face, or even comprehend him “till we have faces.” Yet we can have faces, and we can meet Him up close and personal, to the lament of everyone around us, for there is an affection that eats up the person who is cherished. “For humans will turn out to be increasingly envious. What’s more, mother and spouse and kid and companion will all be allied to shield a spirit from being joined with the Divine Nature.”
2. Rating 5/5
I have perused this book Till We Have Faces PDF again and again. Maybe it is the book I have rehash more than some other. I used to peruse it since I didn’t get it and felt I should. Presently I adore it. Tuning in, this time, to Nadia May, I became Orual, so loaded with self-misdirection, or maybe I ought to state that I perceived myself in her all the more obviously. Ouch. This is the plumb line for 5-star books. Lewis is still my preferred creator and presumably my preferred individual when all is said in done, my closest companion. How might it be that?
I’ve never plunked down and had tea with him? It appears as though I should have.”I saw well why the divine beings don’t address us straightforwardly, nor let us answer. Till that word can be uncovered from underneath us, for what reason would it be a good idea for them to hear the chatter that we think we mean? How might they meet us up close and personal till we have faces?”
I am grateful that when we see Him, Jesus, eye to eye we will resemble Him.
