By John Bremer

The lifestyles and paintings of C.S. Lewis after his conversion in 1931 is celebrated and his acceptance indicates no indicators of diminishing. His past years haven't been so good studied, relatively among the a while of sixteen and 22 whilst he studied privately and at Oxford, served within the British military, was once wounded in France, entered into his affair with Janie Moore, and wrote and released his first publication of poems. To right and increase the restricted money owed of this era, Lewis’s existence is gifted with the final and particular heritage which makes it extra significant, quite because it throws mild on his personality. The romantic fable of him as a "soldier-poet" is dispelled, principally via an in depth overview of the poems in "Spirits in Bondage" and the self-centered lifestyles that produced them. A helpful comparison—not to the good thing about Lewis—is drawn with undoubted soldier-poets, Robert Graves and Siegfried Sassoon. the aim isn't to disparage or belittle Lewis yet to teach what needed to be conquer in his constrained and unsightly early ethical personality with a view to produce the dedicated Christian of later years.
