The Oxford Inklings was an informal group of literary friends who met weekly from around 1933 to 1963 to talk about ideas, read to each other pieces they were writing, and enjoy a good evening of "the cut and parry of prolonged, fierce and masculine argument." The Inklings Handbook focuses on the main members of the group, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien -- who are among the most popular writers of the twentieth century -- Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield. Composed of two sections, this comprehensive guide provides an introduction to the Inklings themselves and an A-Z section of biographical articles, as well as the group's publications, themes, and theology. Included is an extensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading. Authoritative and engaging, Duriez and Porter's long-awaited volume makes a fascinating attempt to capture the elusive complexity of the friendships at the heart of this most remarkable association of writers.

"In this volume of their ground-breaking research, Lewis and Currie explore the earliest writings that formed a part of Tolkien's invented mythology to look for the origins and the sources. The authors of the highly-acclaimed Uncarted Realms of Tolkien venture out like Victorian explorers seeking the source of a mighty river. Their journey is no less spectacular--for in the cauldron of a World War the youthful Tolkien found is imagination turning to thoughts of Eärendil the Mariner and to Gondolin, and elvish city doomed to destruction. We find the sources of Tolkien's invented mythology are as wide-ranging as any river that Victorian explorers sought after. With tenacious research techniques, rigorous and painstaking investigation, Lewis and Currie in this book overturn a number of long-held opinions which were founded on little more than hearsay. By the use of rarely seen medieval texts some of which are translated for the first time in the modern era, and the use of Greek Philogy, Lewis and Currie have uncovered a fascinating web of connections. Find out where Gondolin is drawn from, and where else the same sources were utilised in The Lord of the Rings. Read about the fascinating origins of the hero-sailor who would become Eärendil. And discover the truly amazing background to the Witch-king, the Lord of Nazgul from The Lord of the Rings." --From cover.

The Oxford group of writers known as the Inklings met and thrived during the 1930s and 1940s. Three of the members, C. S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams, became known as authors and cultural figures, recognized for interweaving Christian themes into fantasy fiction. Every member of the Inklings was male, and the group consciously excluded women. This book explores the role of women in the lives of Tolkien, Williams, and Lewis and the attitude of the Inklings toward females. In doing so, it sheds new light on the lives and works of these important writers.
