C.S. Lewis's Dymer: 'A splendour in the dark, a tale, a song'
Wheaton College Wade Center, Wheaton IL
Wheaton College

his lecture will begin by looking at the literary form and narrative structure of Lewis’s Dymer, because Lewis believed firmly in the significance of literary form. (For example, Lewis said that the man who writes a love sonnet not only loves the beloved, he also loves the sonnet.) Thus, we will explore the question: why did Lewis use Narrative Poetry as the means to communicate this particular story? This will be followed by an exposition of the poem itself in order to familiarize the reader with the narrative of Dymer along with a consideration of the poem’s grand themes and ideas.

Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council on Global Affairs

An energy-independent US could be on the horizon – in large part due to the rise of fracking technology that continues to challenge the global supply of oil and gas. The prospect of this independence could destabilize energy-exporters like Russia and Saudi Arabia, and change how America asserts its global influence. But some analysts are reserving their optimism, with suggestions that returns on shale oil may not be as lucrative as once promised. Are we truly on the path to energy independence, and what would the world look like if we pulled it off? Thoughts from Bethany McLean, Contributing Editor, Vanity Fair
