Lewis's ill-informed and terrified victim who leaves Earth much against his will and who, in the first book of the trilogy, 'Out of the Silent Planet', published by The Bodley Head in 1938, encounters the imaginary and delightful world of Malacandra. In the second book, 'Perelandra' (1943), Ransom is transported to a world of sweet smells and delicious tastes, a new Garden of Eden in which is enacted, with a difference, the story of the Temptation. 'That Hideous Strength' (1945) completes the trilogy and find Dr Ransom returned from his travels in space and living in an English university town - where the Senior Common Room is given a mysterious depth, a more than earthly dimension which such things, in the author's view, always have in life."
