A repackaged edition of the revered author’s collection of four poems: “Dymer,” “Launcelot,” “The Nameless Isle,” and “The Queen of Drum.”
C. S. Lewis—the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics—was also a talented poet. In this collection of four longer works of verse, Lewis displays his deep love for medieval and Renaissance poetry and themes, influences that shaped—and resonate through—his fiction.
I love other work by CS Lewis but I did not enjoy this volume of poetry. I really wanted to like it. But alas it was not to be.
