Written during the dark hours immediately before and during World War II, C. S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which That
Hideous Strength is the third and final volume, stands alongside such works as Albert Camus's The Plague and George
Orwell's 1984 as a timely parable that has become timeless, beloved by succeeding generations as much for the sheer
wonder of its storytelling as for the significance of its moral concerns.
The final book in C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which includes Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra, That
Hideous Strength concludes the adventures of the matchless Dr. Ransom. The dark forces that were repulsed in Out of the
Silent Planet and Perelandra are massed for an assault on the planet Earth itself. Word is on the wind that the mighty
wizard Merlin has come back to the land of the living after many centuries, holding the key to ultimate power for that
force which can find him and bend him to its will. A sinister technocratic organization is gaining power throughout
Europe with a plan to "recondition" society, and it is up to Ransom and his friends to squelch this threat by applying
age-old wisdom to a new universe dominated by science. The two groups struggle to a climactic resolution that brings the
Space Trilogy to a magnificent, crashing close.
