Owen Barfield

Oxford University Press

Owen Barfield was C. S. Lewis’s earliest, closest, and longest-standing adult friend. They met as students at the University of Oxford, and remained close until Lewis’s death. This chapter talks frankly about this philosophical and literary friendship before and after Lewis’s conversion, and clarifies some beliefs that have been misattributed to them. It also engages, from an unique perspective with Lewis’s thought, its strengths and weaknesses.

Keywords:   C. S. Lewis, Owen Barfield, University of Oxford, literary friendship
