(p.249) Afterword: A Brief History of the Oxford C. S. Lewis Society
C. S. Lewis and His Circle

Michael Ward

Oxford University Press

The Afterword provides a brief account of the history of the Oxford University C. S. Lewis Society since its founding. It provides a personal account of involvement with the Society and thoughts on what C. S. Lewis would have thought to a society dedicated to discussions of his works and of his intellectual world. Finally, the Afterword reflects on the discussions in this book. Divided into ‘Essays’ and ’Memoirs’, this book has given a fair impression of the Society's two main preoccupations over the years. On the one hand, the group exists to examine and dissect, to explore and analyse in scholarly fashion the ideas found in Lewis's works and in the works of his circle. On the other hand, the Society likes simply spending time with these writers, enjoying their personalities and histories, appreciating their peculiar qualities and gifts as unique individuals.
