Descent Into Hell by Charles Williams


Sold out

Faber and Faber, 1949.

Williams is often labelled a creator of ‘theological thrillers’, and generally regarded as the most ‘mystical’ of his fellow ‘Inklings’ C.S Lewis and J. R. R Tolkien.

‘Descent Into Hell weaves a brilliant tapestry of symbolism, mysticism, philosophy, spirituality, life, death and intensely powerful psychological characterisation. It is a novel that goes to the roots of being and combines the visions of the eagle and the worm. It is frightening and consoling. It is unforgettable.’
