By John Bremer

The lifestyles and paintings of C.S. Lewis after his conversion in 1931 is celebrated and his recognition exhibits no symptoms of diminishing. His prior years haven't been so good studied, rather among the a long time 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 booklet of poems. To right and increase the constrained money owed of this era, Lewis’s existence is gifted with the final and particular heritage which makes it extra significant, rather because it throws mild on his personality. The romantic fable of him as a "soldier-poet" is dispelled, principally via an intensive assessment of the poems in "Spirits in Bondage" and the self-centered existence that produced them. A useful 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 triumph over in his restricted and ugly early ethical personality with the intention to produce the dedicated Christian of later years.
