Lewis and Male Chauvinism

I enjoyed listening to this lecture on Till We Have Faces by Peter Kreeft (Roman Catholic philosopher, professor at Boston College, author of dozens of books, huge C.S. Lewis fan).  Right off the bat he mentions how one of the book’s early reviewers – not yet knowing who the author was – insisted the book’s author must be a woman, because the book is told from the point of view of a woman (Orual), and no male author could ever have understand the world from a woman’s point of view so well.  It just so happens that this same reviewer had previously accused Lewis of male chauvinism.  Hilarious!

Also, I’d like to congratulate myself on a shorter post.  Those last couple really got away from me.
