The Life of C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis’ full name was Clive Staples Lewis. He was born in 1998 to his father who was a lawyer and his loving mother who was a mathematician. He was in a family of four but he was closest to his brother (Warren) whom he spent most time together with. Staples stayed indoors and liked to draw animals.
After his dog died he announced that he would be called Jack, which was its name; this shows his love for animals. In the year 1908 he lost his mother to cancer. In late 1908 he was transferred to boarding school and after health difficulties he was moved to Northern England where he joined Oxford and he abandoned his childhood faith of christianity; he became an atheist.
He was a reader and a deep thinker. Around 1917 he volunteers to join the British army during the First World War. While serving the war he was wounded and his friend died but he kept his promise and took care of his friend’s family. This shows that Lewis was a man who kept his words.
