The existence and paintings of C.S. Lewis after his conversion in 1931 is celebrated and his popularity exhibits no symptoms of diminishing. His previous years haven't been so good studied, rather among the a long time of sixteen and 22 while he studied privately and at Oxford, served within the British military, used to be wounded in France, entered into his affair with Janie Moore, and wrote and released his first publication of poems. To right and increase the constrained bills of this era, Lewis’s existence is gifted with the final and particular historical past which makes it extra significant, relatively because it throws gentle on his personality. The romantic fable of him as a "soldier-poet" is dispelled, mostly via an intensive evaluate of the poems in "Spirits in Bondage" and the self-centered existence that produced them. A invaluable comparison—not to the benefit of 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 unsightly early ethical personality to be able to produce the dedicated Christian of later years.
