View Larger Image. Ask Seller a Question. A masterpiece of satire, this classic work has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of humanity from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to Our Father Below. At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. Through its engrossing and supposedly found epistolary structure, The Screwtape Letters is an engaging account of temptation-and humanity's triumph over it-that offers insights into concepts such as repentance, grace, good, evil, and more.

He tells the story of how Satan will take control of your mind and how detrimental it will be when he has finished his work. Why do you think C. Lewis chose to write the Screwtape Letters in the form, similar, to a satire?
Considering C. Lewis is looked up to among the Christian community, how hard would it be for him to write from the evil point of view? Michelle In my personal opinion, he chose that style because he was originally posting the letters in 'The Guardian' and that style was easiest to manage week …more In my personal opinion, he chose that style because he was originally posting the letters in 'The Guardian' and that style was easiest to manage week to week.
You wouldn't have had to read the previous weeks to understand what that weeks said. As for the second question, Lewis himself was disturbed with what he had written, which is why it was so very important that it was written. The two most important things in any war are knowing the terrain that is being fought upon and the enemy one is fighting.
What better way to learn one's enemy than to imagine the world in their eyes? By writing from evil's perspective Lewis opens our eyes to the tactics often used by the enemy the Devil and his demons to entrap us. The book, and the writing of it, greatly disturbed him for how easily it came. He had very little trouble imagining the demons and their particular schemes to trip their respective humans up.
It opened his own eyes to the Evil surrounding him and how easily the devil could trick and trip a mind with the most simple of thoughts. Writing from that style also allowed us as a reader not to feel as though we were sitting in a lecture about what we shouldn't do and instead let us, if we so chose, to compare our own lives with the unfortunate characters in the book.
