||The definitive volume of Lewis's poetry, combining the only four known narrative poems of his creation in existence, together with his other poetic works -- all displaying the characteristic Lewis intimacy, satire, irony, warmth and wisdom. This volume collects together for the first time all the published poems of C.S.Lewis, originally available across separate volumes. More than 100 poems in all, they contain a rich variety of styles and moods -- emotional, classical, mystical; but always clear-headed and full of wisdom. In addition, this book contains all Lewis's longer Narrative Poems. 'Dymer' was begun by Lewis as a story in prose and tells the story of a man who creates a monster which kills his father and becomes a god. 'The Nameless Isle' is the story of a shipwrecked mariner and his adventures on a magic island, and 'The Queen of Drum' tells of an old pompous king and his young queen who eventually have to choose between heaven, hell and fairyland. Mosy famously is the brief but immensely powerful 'Launcelot', containing the story of the great knight's quest fior the Holy Grail and his return to Guinever. The novels and stories of C.S.Lewis for children continue to enchant each new generation -- now lovers of his writing can now be enthralled by his imaginative power and mastery of language in its purest form.
