Article Title

Identifies Janie Moore as the sometimes goddess, sometimes human Δ or Despoina in Lewis’s early poems, letters, and diaries. The changing nature of her depiction shows the young Lewis developing a surer handling of his chosen mythic references as he matures and reinforces the thesis that they were lovers.
