Comments Narrative Poems

  1. Predictably, I liked his Launcelot fragment most from the Grail quest The Queen of Drum, written before 1938, was notable for the takeover of a medieval kingdom by a fascist called F hrer and Duce , which put me in mind of TH White s Arthurian with added WWII Come to that, Lewis has scattered a few epic similes from the WWI front, in his fantasy settings The Nameless Isle was medieval styled in alliterative verse, however was like an exercise Dymer, 80 of these pages, was a bit abstract philosop [...]


  2. I have always loved Lewis s work and I do love this book The only reason I gave it four stars was because some of the stories were not my personal style I do love his way of writing though


  3. I was least impressed by Dymer the only poem in this volume published in Lewis lifetime , though it is valuable in terms of showing Lewis spiritual development and self exorcism of his Christina dreams Launcelot begins promisingly, but suffers a good deal from being incomplete The Nameless Isle is fun for having some precursors of the ending of Perelandra and Narnia s White Witch Easily the most entertaining poem is The Queen of Drum, managing to be clever, theological political, and sinister.


  4. The poetry in Dymer isn t very good, which is funny since it s the one Lewis actually published More on that here hannahgivens.wordpress 201The other three poems in this collection are actually quite good, and this would be a good resource for a lot of analytical writing, especially The Queen of Drum for Lewis and women More on that here hannahgivens.wordpress 201


  5. Dymer is really good Who knew The other pieces in here are okay as well Lewis as a narrative poet stays close to the Romantic tradition but has cutting, modern lines that stay closer to the spoken English of our day than one is used to in the genre If people ever start considering different types of poetry again, this one might experience a flowering We re getting pretty close to a hundred years after its initial publication, so that would be a pretty impressive feat.


  6. Lewis actually wrote a narrative poem backed on Wagner s Ring Cycle when he was 15 shakes head Marry me, Clive Staples Sadly, ultimately the narrative poetry by Lewis, while good, was nowhere near as good as his prose It s somewhat reassuring that not even Lewis can do everything well, I suppose.


  7. I adored loved this book The narrative poems are wonderful narratives and c.s.lewis knowd how to use words so that even what is meant to be tragic is beautiful.


  8. Dymer was very hard to read but I loved the other three I d like to try Dymer again, slower, and re reading the into too.
