Charles Williams -- interesting blog comments
- There is an interesting comment on the blog post "Charles Williams, sigh...".
Williams' mind must have been full of fireflies. He is a writer of the
short burst of intense light -- one sentence or paragraph -- which he then
chases with long darkness. The genius moments are higher than Lewis,
but the clunkers are so bad Lewis could not have written them in the
The steadiest work, I think, is The Figure of Beatrice.
To which the blog owner replied:
Ah, that's a really good way of putting it. Williams is very inconsistent.
That Hideous Strength is 10x better than any of William's supernatural
novels if for no other reason than it's good the whole way through - not
just for a passing moment here and there. He has his moments though.
