  1. Sometimes, you don’t need words to explain a choice. +)

    I’ve never read his narrative poems, though! Wasn’t even aware of that volume. What are they like? (Besides very good, of course.)

    • Exactly! Plus, I’m a visual person. Pictures are a must.

      They are not very good. They are excellent. 🙂 I haven’t read them in awhile, but they were so beautiful. I would just get lost in the words.

      There are four poems: “Dymer,” “Launcelot,” “The Nameless Isle,” and “The Queen of Drum”. “Dymer” was disturbing. Lewis first came up with it when he was 17 (I think), and it’s about a monster. “Launcelot” was a favorite because it’s about Launcelot (duh) and Guinevere. I don’t remember anything about “The Nameless Isle,” nor “The Queen of Drum,” except that I liked the latter a lot.
