Don King's Literature Page
The study of literature is central to a liberal arts education. This page lists the literature classes I teach here, other literary interests I have, and information on how to contact me. By the way if you are a student considering Montreat College, welcome! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Also, see The Ruth Pitter Project and The Joy Davidman Project.
The following are classes that I teach on a regular basis at Montreat College. You can find syllabi, handouts, class notes, and interesting links to other related sites.

OTHER LITERARY INTERESTS:
Other than the classes I teach, my chief literary interest lies in the area of C. S. Lewis studies. I have taught numerous classes on Lewis, both in formal academic settings and in more casual Elderhostel, church retreats, and Sunday school settings. I will be glad to share notes and ideas. During the summer of 2004 I taught a course on Lewis at his home, the Kilns, located just outside Oxford. For more information, click C. S. Lewis Foundation Summer Seminars in Residence 2004.
My book on Lewis' poetry, C. S. Lewis, Poet: The Legacy of His Poetic Impulse (Kent State University Press, 2001) is available at www.kentstateuniversitypress.com.
Links to other Lewis sites and events:
My current writing projects involve two books on Ruth Pitter (1897-1992), a poet who corresponded extensively with Lewis: The Collected Letters of Ruth Pitter and Hunting the Unicorn: A Critical Biography of Ruth Pitter. For more on this project, see The Ruth Pitter Project.
In addition, I serve as the editor of the Christian Scholar's Review.
