Is C.S. Lewis Irish?
Born in Belfast.
One of CS Lewis's interests as a child, and which later influenced his Narnia Chronicles, was animals that had human characteristics (called anthropomorphic animals), such as the characters of Beatrix Potter's Tales of Peter Rabbit. CS Lewis was a very keen reader. He was interested in the songs and legends of ancient Scandinavia, and later he was also interested in Irish mythology. He was captivated by the beauty of nature.
