Abstract:

The Oxford Inklings, and informal group of literary friends, met weekly from around 1933 to 1963, often in the Eagle and Child public house or in C.S. Lewis's room in Magfalene College. they talked about ideas, read to each other pieces they were writing, and enjoyed a good evening of 'the cut and parry of prolonged,, fierve and masculine argument'. "The Inklings Handbook" focuses on the main members of the group, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien - who are amin the most popular writes of the twentieth century and still strikingly relevant in the twenty-first - Charles Williasm and Owen Barfield. It falls into two parts: the first introducing the Inklings, the second longer A-Z section containing many biographical aticles as well as substantial entries on the group's publications, themes and theology.
