About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Lewis' poem 'Prayer' is truly inspiring and life-changing . . . God spoke through this man.

I was dissapointed by Lewis' poems. true, their range was one of the largest i've seen (from sci-fi to christian poems), but most were dull and just didn't live up to his reputation. i'd say stick with his fiction.

An amazing display of Lewis's range and genius. His knack for description brings an awe-inspiring life to his poetry. Very good for light reading.
