English term or phrase: defend his life purely and beautifully
Buonasera a tutti, la frase intera è la seguente:

Excerpts from The Cross by Yun Dong-ju, who sought to defend his life purely and beautifully through the form of Christian contemplation and reflection. He is also one of the poets Koreans love the most.

Vorrei capire se defend his life purely and beautifully through... significa che il poeta cercava di difendere la sua vita in modo puro e bello attraverso la forma della riflessione e della contemplazione cristiana.
Non mi sembra abbia molto senso così in italiano, intanto non capisco in che senso "difendere la vita", e poi "in modo puro e bello"? Non so, credo mi sfugga qualcosa, forse qualche madrelingua potrebbe aiutarmi.
Grazie in anticipo.

Difendere in modo puro e bello la propria vita
Explanation:
Nel senso di esteticamente bello, con la sua poesia.

Era stato arrestato come "criminale intellettuale" e poi morì dopo anni di maltrattamenti quindi questo potrebbe essere il senso di difendere.
