Autograph letter signed by C.S. Lewis from 1951, discussing the author's reaction to young author Ray Bradbury

N.p. N.p. 1951. Autograph Letter Signed from C.S. Lewis to a fan named Mr. Rutyearts, discussing his reaction to the then-new science fiction author Ray Bradbury.

The letter is dated April 28, 1951, Magdalene College in Cambridge, and reads: "Dear M. Rutyearts / I enclose a photo; whether good or not I do not know, but it is the only one I can find. / Bradbury is a writer of great distinction in my opinion. Is his style almost too delicate, too elusive, too "nuancé" for S.F. matter? In that respect I take him and me to be at opposite poles; he is a humbled disciple of Corot and Debussy, I an even humbler disciple of Titian and Beethoven. / With all good wishes / Yours sincerely / C.S. Lewis."

1 page, 4.5 x 7 inches, Near Fine condition, lacking the original mailing envelope, with just a touch of creasing.
