      That's interesting, Wendell.  I'd say that the discussion goes beyond a "brief mention" in _The Narnian: The Life & Imagination of C.S. Lewis_ by Alan Jacobs, though you've probably read that.  But, just in case you haven't, you'd definitely want to look at it before writing a paper.

      As I mentioned two months ago, I decided to read The Control of Language: 
      A Critical Approach to Reading and Writing by Alec King and Martin Ketley 
      and The Reading and Writing of English by E. G. Biaggini. The first book is 
      the one referred to in C. S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man as The Green 
      Book by Gaius and Titius and the second book, not given a name in The 
      Abolition of Man, is the one supposedly written by Orbilius. Has anyone ever done 
      a paper at Mythcon or published an article in any Mythopoeic publication 
      about them? It's hard for me to tell just from Googling, but it appears to 
      me that they are briefly mentioned in a couple of books about Lewis. Has 
      anyone read any lengthy analysis of these books in relation to Lewis? These 
      books, especially The Control of Language, are long out of print and rather 
      hard to find these days, although you might be able to get them on used 
      books websites.[. . .]
