In this timeless tale of two mortal princesses one beautiful and one unattractive CS Lewis reworks the classical myth of Cupid and Psyche into an enduring piece of contemporary fiction This is the story of Orual Psyche's embit. One of the lesser known of Lewis' fiction works this is a masterful retelling of the mythological story of Cupid and Psyche that paints a vivid picture of how selfish humanly love is and to what extent we will go to protect it The narrative serves to humble the reader as the heroine of the novel transforms from the pitiable victim to the chief antagonist and at the same time we realize that we are her always pondering on the wrongs done to us and the shortcomings we experience It's an excellent novel that speaks to how we as humans tend to see our own plight in life as the most dire and perceive others as being part of our plight or calloused to our plight Yet in the end we are most likely the villains in a myriad of others' stories as much as the tragic hero of our own A great reminder that whatever my circumstances I am in thousands of stories other than my own and only I can choose the color of my character

A must read for any Lewis fan He began the book as an unbeliever a case against God and finished it some 30 years later fully converted Almost autobiographical you get a real sense of his own spiritual awakening It is claimed to be his personal favorite The name comes from the scripture Now we see through a glass darkly but then face to faceshall I know even as also I am known Better than anything I've read it describes the process of developing faith and finding and becoming like God Amazing The actual Cupid Psyche myth is summarized in the back of the book Read it first for context
