Lewis's earliest planetary interest inspired by Mars. Enamoured of Chaucer's knight and the chivalric ideal, Lewis fought in the First World War and addressed troops during the Second. Martial imagery of hardness, straightness, and necessity in his poetry, his scholarship, and in Out of the Silent Planet and That Hideous Strength. Mars Gradivus and Mars Silvanus provide the donegality of Prince Caspian, which is a tale of civil war and wakening woods, of discipline, order, and freedom from anxiety.
