OnStoriesEssayChatpt1.jpg"On Stories" is the namesake essay in On Stories: And other Essays on Literature. William O'Flaherty spoke with Andrew Lazo back in 2012 about this shorter work by C.S. Lewis. Among the topics it explores is what makes a story pleasurable and why fairy tales do follow a strict logic. This is the first of a two-part episode on it (this first show alone is 20 minutes). Learn about when this essay was first published and some keys points made in the article in this first part. Next week's segment deals primarily with the issue of the importance of re-reading stories.
