Perelandra by C. S. Lewis - Chapter 8 summary and analysis. This Study Guide consists of approximately 44 pages of chapter summaries, quotes, character analysis, themes, and more - everything you need to sharpen your knowledge of Perelandra. The second novel, Perelandra, depicts a new Garden of Eden on the planet Venus, a new Adam and Eve, and a new "serpent figure" to tempt Eve. The story can be seen as an account of what might have happened if the terrestrial Adam had defeated the serpent and avoided the Fall of Man, with Ransom intervening in the novel to "ransom" the new Adam.

Perelandra continues to follow the interplanetary adventures of Dr. Elwin Ransom, a well-meaning philologist. It continues the trend from the previous novel (Out of the Silent Planet) of using Lewis himself as a narrator for the beginning and ending, relating his experiences with Ransom, whom he portrays as being a real person.
