All My Road Before Me: The Diary of C.S.Lewis, 1922-27 Summary
This volume of the diaries of C.S. Lewis deals with a little known period of his life: the Oxford years, 1922-27. The diaries reveal Lewis's intense concern when, despite a Double First in Classics and a First in English, he was unable to gain a Fellowship. The problem was eventually solved in 1925 with a Magdalen Fellowship. Lewis's developing relationship with the Moore family is explored, and there is a moving account of the intense mental anguish of Mrs Moore's brother, and of the care Lewis was able to give him. His great compassion for all forms of suffering is revealed here. Much of the later Lewis is apparent in these early writings, and the philosophical training of these years eventually bore fruit in "The Abolition of Man". It was during this period that significant friendships were formed, including those with J.R.R. Tolkien and Owen Barfield.
