Lily Kelting

University of North Carolina Press

Lily Kelting, a postdoctoral fellow associated with food research, explores Lewis’s legacy as both a cultural icon and cultural historian. She examines the significance behind Lewis’s image immortalized as a stamp, recalls her own journey into the archives of Lewis as she worked on her dissertation, and reflects on the sensual prose that marks Lewis’s writing as uniquely her own. Finally, Kelting remarks on the duality of the sadness of Lewis’s passing and the enduring sense that she is “decidedly not gone”.
