Title: Boxen: The Imaginary World of the Young C. S. Lewis Title Record # 194149
Author: C. S. Lewis
Date: 1985-00-00
Type: COLLECTION
Language: English
Note:
  • Edited and with an introduction by Walter Hooper, secretary to C.S. Lewis in 1963, the last year of his life.
  • "Although more an indirect portrait of an Edwardian childhood than a major collection of new stories, Boxen--as Lewis' first and formative imaginary kingdom--should be of interest to Narnia enthusiasts." --Kirkus Reviews 1985-09-15 (posted 2011)
  • On the title page of 2008 collection Boxen: Childhood Chronicles Before Narnia by C.S. Lewis and W.H. Lewis (brothers), publisher HarperCollins calls this an "abridged" version of the latter. In fact the only differences in Lewis content are that the latter includes [a] three more Boxen "novels" (reportedly all of those extant, 6 rather than 3) and [b] more and better-reproduced images of original materials.
