Our Home School Classical Literature Club is reading Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis. We will eat a greek meal and discuss the book on Monday. The kids will present their projects and we’ll have a marvelous time.
Till We Have Faces is one of the last books C.S. Lewis wrote and he said it was one of his favorites. This is my second time to read it. I think it’s one of those books that becomes richer with each reading. In the story, Orual, the main character is ugly and hides behind a veil so as not to scare anyone. She doesn’t know her heart. She can’t see life as it truly is. Her sister is taken by the god of love and Orual despises him for taking her beloved sister.
In the end Orual’s suffering opens her eyes to the bitterness and anger that has devoured her life. LIght shines into her soul and she becomes awakes to life. She conlcudes we cannot be REAL Till We Have Faces.
This video will give you a general plot line for the story.
Enjoy! And share your thoughts with me by leaving me a comment below.
