Notes

First edition, first impression, of Lewis's retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche, a work first referenced in his diary in 1923, but not finished for a further three decades. Finally written in a "full flush of inspiration... it was certainly his most unexpected book, and his greatest tour de force; to many readers, and probably to himself, his best work of fiction (even if Perelandra remained his favourite)" (Green & Hooper, C. S. Lewis: A Biography, 1974, p. 265).
