C.S. Lewis the shadow lands?

Your question is far from clear........But I will make two guesses.

1. You are referring to the movie "Shadowlands" with Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. It tells the lovely and tragic story of C S Lewis' marriage to Joy Gresham and it is very good - I recommend that you rent it and watch it, and look for the term shadowlands in it.

2. You are referring to a belief that underlies much of Lewis's writing. This belief comes from Plato, and in summary says that everything we see here is an imperfect "shadow" or copy of a reality in Heaven.

== == C.S. Lewis wrote "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" as part of the Chronicles of Narnia. This series is a seven part series that takes place in the magical land of Narnia. He wrote all seven books in a mere 6 years. The book's symbolism is that Aslan resembles Jesus.
