C.S. Lewis’ Letters to Kilmer Family for Sale
According to bbc.com, the RAAB Collection is selling C.S. Lewis’ letters to the Kilmer Family for $110,000. This collection of letters is significant because there are nearly 30 letters addressed to the eight Kilmer children, and Lewis dedicated The Magician’s Nephew to the family.
The letters feature Lewis’ thoughts on philosophy, religion, literature, replies to tidbits about what was happening in the Kilmer’s lives, and Narnia. They are a large part of C.S. Lewis: Letters to Children.
The letter dated 22 January 1957 has comments about Susan’s fate at the end of the series:
She is left alive in this world at the end, having by then turned into a rather silly, conceited young woman. But there is plenty of time for her to mend, and perhaps she will get to Aslan’s country in the end–in her own way.Letters to Children
