C. S. Lewis and His Circle

Walter Hooper

Oxford University Press

The mid-twentieth-century group of writers known as the Inklings was one of Oxford’s most iconic literary circles. It provided support and criticism for its members’ work, most notably the novels of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. This chapter draws on conversations and experiences, as well as extensive research, to tell the story of the formation and habits of the Inklings, individually and communally.
