Spirits in Bondage: A Cycle of Lyrics

Published under the pseudonym, Clive Hamilton, Spirits in Bondage was C. S. Lewis' first book, released in 1919. Most of the poems appear to have been written between 1915 and 1918, a period during which Lewis was a student under W. T. Kirkpatrick, a military trainee at Oxford, and a soldier serving in the trenches of World War I. Their outlook varies from Romantic expressions of love for the beauty and simplicity of nature to cynical statements about the presence of evil in this world.
