Summary of Lewis in Poets’ Corner

November 26, 2013

Poets Corner MemorialC.S. Lewis was buried 50 years ago today (11/26/1963). As you are likely aware he was just memorialized this past Friday in Poets’ Corner. The follow are some pieces related to that event and then also a few additional general articles about C.S. Lewis that were posted since my earlier post or ones I wasn’t aware of at the time. Feel free, as before, to post any additional links of other reports not mentioned here.

    Thanks for all the great links. That’s my first look at Lewis’ plaque. Very nice. And the quote is so appropriate for a cathedral.
