It is in the soul of its hero doomed to encounter his own reflection in the eye of executioner.

In this analysis of C.S. Lewis' novel That Hideous Strength, Mihai Marinescu provides us with a whole range of insights on posthumanism, counter-initiation, mass media, conspiracy culture and much more. Lengthy, exhaustive and not to be missed - just the way we like it on Kali Tribune.
