(p.1) Introduction
The Fame of C. S. Lewis

Stephanie L. Derrick

Oxford University Press

The Introduction outlines the structure, major themes, methodologies, and limitations of The Fame of C. S. Lewis. It justifies the import of the subject as lying with the long-lasting cultural influence of C. S. Lewis, as well as what the topic reveals about the reading and intellectual cultures of Britain and America and key differences between these countries. It identifies important, new primary source materials and points of possible interest excluded by this study. It states that the book is not a work of literary criticism, nor a work of ‘reception studies’ formerly considered. An outline of the book is provided.
