On Being Human

by C.S. Lewis

‘On Being Human’ by C.S Lewis is incredibly unique and fascinating as it deals with both the physical and the spiritual realm as compared to one another.

The poem exemplifies the poetic style of C.S. Lewis, which is characterized by rich imagery, philosophical musings, and a focus on spiritual themes. It also reflects the tradition of English poetry, with its emphasis on nature and the human experience.

Behold the Forms of nature. They discern

Unerringly the Archtypes, all the verities

Which mortals lack or indirectly learn.
