From the Back Cover:

"This is the best--the glorious best--of Lewis. For here, with the gemlike beauty and hardness that poetry alone can achieve, are his ideas about the nature of things that lay behind his writings."--Christianity Today   Although C.S. Lewis never published a book of verse during his lifetime, he wrote poetry from the age of fourteen. This poetic impulse is evident in much of Lewis's work, including his first prose piece, The Pilgrim's Regress, which contains a number of short lyrics, and his novel Till We Have Faces, which had its beginnings as a long poem. There is a great variety of subjects in these poems--God and the pagan deities, unicorns, spaceships, nature, love, age, and reason. Walter Hooper, the editor of this collection, points out that the same man is revealed in his poetry as in his prose: "His wonderful imagination is the guiding thread."   "Take[s] an important place in the Lewis canon."--The New York Times Book Review   C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) gained international renown for an impressive array of beloved works both popular and scholarly: literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and numerous books on theology. Among his most celebrated achievements are Out of the Silent Planet, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, and Surprised by Joy.

About the Author:

C. S. (Clive Staples) Lewis (1898-1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. A Fellow and tutor at Oxford until 1954, he spent the rest of his career as Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, inlcuding The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity and Surprised by Joy.
