From the C.S. Lewis Preface:

In this book the reader is offered the work of one professional author, two dons, a solicitor, a friar, and a retired army officer; if he feels disposed to complain of hotchpotch (which incidentally is an excellent dish; consult the NOCTES AMBROSIANAE) I must reply that the variety displayed by this little group is far too small to represent the width of Charles William's friendships. Nor are we claiming to represent it. Voices from many parts of England -- voices of people often very different from ourselves -- would justly rebuke our presumption if we did. We know that he was as much theirs as ours: not only, nor even chiefly, because of his range and versatility, great though these were, but because, in every circle that he entered, he gave the whole man. I had almost said that he was at everyone's disposal, but those words would imply a passivity on his part, and all who knew him would find the implication ludicrous. You might as well say that an Atlantic breaker on a Cornish beach is 'at the disposal' of all whom it sweeps off their feet.

Essays: Dorothy-Sayers "A Note on the Divine Comedy" , J.R.R. Tolkien "On Fairy-Stories", C.S. Lewis "On Stories", A.O. Barfield "Poetic Fiction and Legal Fiction", Gervase Mathew "Marriage and Amour Courtois in Late 14th Century England", and W. H. Lewis "The Galleys of France".
