Essay Chat 19r – Screwtape Proposes a Toast (Brenton Dickieson)

EC19 - Screwtape Toast“Screwtape Proposes a Toast” is an essay that is indirectly a follow-up to the successful book The Screwtape Letters. Brenton Dickieson joins William O’Flaherty for an essay chat on this insightful piece that Wormwood never got to hear. It was first published in The Saturday Evening Post in 1959 (see below for a link to read it online) before being reprinted several times. The best place to get in print is either in The World’s Last Night or some editions of The Screwtape Letters. This is part of an occasional series exploring a single essay by Lewis to encourage you to read (or re-read) it and other essays by him that are often neglected.

Testing the Possibilities of the Screwtape-Ransom Speculative Universe (Brenton Dickieson)

Screwtape Haunts Eden (Brenton Taylor 2016)Here’s another short talk presented at the 2016 Colloquium at Taylor University. This one is from Brenton Dickieson, best known for his website A Pilgrim in Narnia. The full title of his paper was “When Screwtape Haunts in Eden: Testing the Possibilities of the Screwtape-Ransom Speculative Universe.” A key part of what he shares is about how The Screwtape Letters may actually fit into the “Ransom fictional universe.” Brenton has been on my podcast, All About Jack several times before (see links below).

18r Essay Chat – On Three Ways of Writing for Children (Brenton Dickieson)

On-Three-Ways-of-Writing-for-Children-194x300.jpgThis week is the final “catch-up” of a previous essay chat that hadn’t yet been re-released since changing podcast hosting to Podbean in late 2014. In the early 1950’s Lewis began releasing a series of books that he is most associated with now. Lewis gave a talk in 1952 when less than half of his Narnia stories were published. The name of the essay version is “On Three Ways of Writing for Children.” Brenton Dickieson, a frequent podcast guest explores this shorter work with host William O’Flaherty. The best place to find the article version is in a collection called On Stories.
