Friends of this blog should check out this guest lecture which my colleague, fellow Mythgardian, and friend Sorina Higgins did for the Mythgard Institute’s Tolkien & Lewis Course this fall.
On Tuesday, I gave a guest lecture at Signum University’s Mythgard Institute as a supplement to the course on C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. The talk was entitled “The Heraldry of Heaven: The Development of Sehnsucht in the Writings of C.S. Lewis.” In it, I discuss the longing or yearning that drove Lewis to explore Romantic poetry and mystical encounters in his writings.
