      First, an article of interest on Lewis:

      Mervyn Nicholson. “C. S. Lewis, Fairy Tales, and Walter de la Mare”

      Notes and Queries (2011) 58(4): 581-583 doi:10.1093/notesj/gjr200

      Includes a couple of interesting comparisons between passages in de la Mare’s “Bluebeard” and the Narnia books—including a reference in “Bluebeard” to a room containing nothing but a very large wardrobe.

       

      And second, long-time readers of Mythlore may remember Margaret P. Hannay’s articles on Lewis and Sayers in the 1970s. She recently published a book, Mary Sidney, Lady Wroth, about the author of the romance/roman a clef Urania.
