He was intensely unhappy there, loathing the required sports and the clique of boys who formed a self-appointed elite. After Lewis spent two years of misery there, his father eventually arranged to have him study with a private tutor in Great Bookham, Surrey.

Moore came often; the bereaved mother and the abandoned son turned to each other for strength and consolation. When Jack returned to Oxford in 1919 to resume his studies, he finished out his last The Life of C. S. Lewis 15 year of required residence, then moved in with Maureen and Mrs. Moore. Before long, he began introducing her as his mother, and the two stayed together for over thirty years, until her death in 1951. While he was convalescing, Jack put together a collection of poems he’d written about love and war that also expressed his personal philosophy at that time.
