New Recordings of C.S. Lewis’s Voice
The Marion E. Wade Center has released new audio recordings of C.S. Lewis‘s voice. You can hear him read excerpts from two of his own books, Perelandra and That Hideous Strength. He also reads from The Canterbury Tales in the original Middle English. These were recorded just weeks after the passing of his wife, Joy.
As a bonus, a 14-year-old Douglas Gresham (stepson of Lewis) can be heard testing the tape before Lewis begins reading from Chaucer.
