yep,

what i mean is you can take a look at emacs modes sources : *.el files.
IMHO, most of those files are really well written and it will give you a good kick off for lisp language.
Be sure that you have emacs installed with the sources.
considering that you have a previous experience in programming i think it won't be a big deal to learn it.

I recommend Common Lisp and one of the emacs interfaces.

The two common implementations of Common Lisp are CMU Common Lisp which is a high-performance compiler but can be a little tedious to use and CLisp which is lighter and much more portable but is only a bytecode machine.

For emacs interfaces you can use ilisp which is solid but not overly exiting or SLIME which is more advnaced but may need put you through some teething.
