C. S. Lewis and His Circle

Oxford University Press

Nevill Coghill, like C. S. Lewis an Irishman, was a theatre director and literary scholar, and a member of the Inklings. This chapter reflects on Coghill’s place in the Inklings circle, as well as on the significance of Coghill’s and Lewis’s shared Irish heritage. It elucidates the Irish context of Lewis’s position at Oxford and raises some questions about Lewis’s own national self-understanding.
