Publisher's Description

2020 Top Shelf Book Cover Award Winner

A rare glimpse of a young C. S. Lewis.
Spirits in Bondage reveals the earliest published thoughts of C. S. Lewis. However, we find an unfamiliar Lewis--not the mature Christian but the young atheist cynic, who fought in the harrowing Great War. In these poems Lewis dreads the dangerous world that keeps us from living meaningful lives.
Introduced by Karen Swallow Prior, this beautiful print edition of Spirits in Bondage will nuance our understanding of C. S. Lewis.

Author Bio

C. S. Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. He taught medieval and Renaissance literature at Oxford and Cambridge University. He wrote more than thirty books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, including The Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Screwtape Letters, and Till We Have Faces. Spirits in Bondage was his first published book.

Editorial Reviews

For years, C. S. Lewis longed to be a poet. Thanks to Lexham Press’s reⷐrelease of Spirits in Bondage, we have a rare glimpse not only into Lewis’s early poetry but also his thought as a young atheist. —Ryan J. Pemberton, First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, author of Called: My Journey to C. S. Lewis’s House and Back Again and Walking with C. S. Lewis: A Companion Guide
