Product description

The Personal Heresy; a controversy by E M W Tillyard and C S Lewis. Published by Oxford University Press 1939. This paperback edition 1965. Condition is fair. Cover is soiled and bumped. Fly leaf is loose. Text is clean.
The Personal Heresy is a series of articles, three each by C.S. Lewis and E. M. W. (Eustace Mandeville Wetenhall) Tillyard,in 1939 by Oxford University Press and later reprinted in 1965. The central issue of the essays is whether a piece of imaginative writing, particularly poetry, is primarily a reflection of the author's personality (Tillyard's position) or is about something external to the author (Lewis's position). The two positions may be summarized briefly as the subjective position (Tillyard) and the objective position (Lewis). In general, Lewis attempts to keep poetry within the reach of the common person, while Tillyard thinks of the poet as a person who is "a cut above the common person."
