One of Lewis’ works of allegorical fiction, Till We Have Faces is a reinterpretation of the myth of Cupid and Psyche. Psyche’s great beauty incurs the wrath of the goddess Venus, who sends her son Cupid to punish her. Cupid falls in love with Psyche…
In Lewis’ version, the central character becomes an ugly, jealously loving sister of Psyche named Orual, in whose words the story is told. She asks: ‘How can the gods meet us face to face till we have faces?’

‘He always tells a good story, and this is a splendid, vehement one, full of stone and wind and spears in an old country, wet mist on the hills.… seems to sum up most of what Dr Lewis has been telling us for years.’
‘One of the most eminently readable pieces of fiction that has come my way for a long time.’
