The Use of C. S. Lewis's "Poems" for Oral Interpretation.
Suggestions are offered in this paper for adapting C. S. Lewis's poems for oral interpretation. A discussion of Lewis's lifelong correspondence with his friend Arthur Greeves provides insights into Lewis's perceptions of his own writing. Eighty poems selected from Lewis's "Poems" as appropriate for oral interpretation are classified according to these themes: (1) creation/nature, (2) good/evil/temptation/judgment, (3) new life, (4) love, (5) mortality/immortality, (6) social/moral concerns, (7) longing, (8) prayer/petitions, (9) fantasy/myth, (10) humor, and (11) miscellaneous. A development of each theme based on the selected poems is provided. (MKM)
