In 1942, C. S, Lewis wrote two apparently unrelated books: A Preface to Paradise Lost and Perelandra. Although they are works of literary criticism and science fiction respectively, their differences in genre only thinly disguise what they have in common. This study explores how Lewis’s fiction, especially Perelandra, adapts that with which Lewis agrees and alters that with which he disagrees in John Milton's Paradise Lost.
