Summary (From the publisher):

C.S. Lewis is one of the world's most popular Christian writers. His clear explanations of Christian doctrine have never been surpassed.

This definitive collection of poetry contains a rich variety of styles and moods -- intimate, emotional, satirical, ironic, classical, mystical; but always clear-headed and full of wisdom. The collection will be an essential part of any Lewis library.
