Lewis's letters include some of his best things, and Walter Hooper has done really noble work in editing the first volume of the series. There are very helpful notes, a biographical appendix, and a good index. The content is what you would expect after reading "Surprised by Joy" and the excerpts in the smaller "Letters of C.S. Lewis." The first volume of the Collected Letters includes important friends as well as his family; among the friends are Arthur Greeves and Lewis's close friends at Oxford. Those who want to trace the growth of Lewis's thought will be interested to follow his childhood and teen years, but the richest content comes near the end of the book. To judge from smaller volume of Letters, which provides selections from most of his life, the following volumes will be better yet. I only hope that volume II will become more readily available, and that volume III will be completed and published before too long. The hard binding is quite satisfactory.
