That Hideous Strength (subtitled A Modern Fairy-Tale for Grown-Ups) is a 1945 novel by C. S. Lewis, the final book in Lewis's theological science fiction Space Trilogy. The events of this novel follow those of Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra (also titled Voyage to Venus) and once again feature the philologist Elwin Ransom. Yet unlike the principal events of those two novels, the story takes place on Earth rather than in space or on other planets in the solar system.

  • Cette hideuse puissance est un roman de C. S. Lewis publié en 1945 qui conclut La Trilogie cosmique. À la différence des deux tomes précédents, Au-delà de la planète silencieuse et Perelandra, qui conduisaient Elwin Ransom sur Mars et Vénus respectivement, Cette hideuse puissance se déroule entièrement sur Terre. Ransom y tient toujours un rôle important, mais n'est plus le protagoniste du récit.
  • Thulcandra is het laatste deel van de Ruimte-trilogie, de theologische literaire trilogie van C.S. Lewis. Thulcandra wordt voorafgegaan door Malacandra en Perelandra. Het kwam uit als That Hideous Strength (1945), met de ondertitel A Modern Fairy-Tale for Grown-Ups. Het verhaal was in oorspronkelijke vorm dikker dan de eerste twee verhalen van de trilogie samen.
  • Die böse Macht (That Hideous Strength) ist der Titel des 1945 erschienenen dritten Romans der Perelandra-Trilogie, einer Science-Fiction-Trilogie des britischen Literaturprofessors und Schriftstellers C. S. Lewis.
  • That Hideous Strength (subtitled A Modern Fairy-Tale for Grown-Ups) is a 1945 novel by C. S. Lewis, the final book in Lewis's theological science fiction Space Trilogy. The events of this novel follow those of Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra (also titled Voyage to Venus) and once again feature the philologist Elwin Ransom. Yet unlike the principal events of those two novels, the story takes place on Earth rather than in space or on other planets in the solar system. The story involves an allegedly scientific institute, the N.I.C.E. , which is a front for sinister supernatural forces. The novel was heavily influenced by the writing of Lewis's friend and fellow Inkling Charles Williams, and is markedly dystopian in style. In the book's preface Lewis acknowledges science-fiction writer Olaf Stapledon and his work: "Mr. Stapledon is so rich in invention that he can well afford to lend, and I admire his invention (though not his philosophy) so much that I should feel no shame to borrow. " In the foreword, Lewis states that the novel's point is the same as that in his non-fiction work The Abolition of Man, which argues (against a grammar book of the time) that there are natural laws and objective values, which education should teach children to recognise. The novel's title is taken from a poem written by David Lyndsay in 1555, Ane Dialog betuix Experience and ane Courteour, also known as The Monarche. The couplet in question, "The shadow of that hyddeous strength, sax myle and more it is of length", refers to the Tower of Babel.
  • Aquela Força Medonha (Lançado no Brasil como Uma Força Medonha, That Hideous Strength no original em inglês) é o terceiro livro da Trilogia Espacial escrito pelo autor britânico C.S. Lewis. Nesta obra, sequência de Além do Planeta Silencioso e Perelandra, Lewis coloca o protagonista Elwin Ransom em uma aventura na Terra, diferente dos volumes anteriores onde a historia se passou em outros planetas. Ransom tem de liderar o confronto frente as forças totalitarias da N.I.C.E. que tem como objetivo subjulgar a humanidade. Este é o livro mais denso e complexo da trilogia, exige a leitura dos primeiros volumes e carrega grande influência filosófica e teológica. Além de conter muitas referências literárias e mitológicas.
