Perelandra is a planet of pleasure, an unearthly, misty world of strange desires,
sweet smells, and delicious tastes, where beasts are friendly and naked beauty

shows the capability of science to be an evil force tempting a ruler away from
the path that has produced a paradisiacal kingdom.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and was educated at Cherbourg House, Malvern College, and Oxford.
