C. S. Lewis and the Inklings

BirdandbabyAllow me suggest a wonderful double podcast from CBC Radio about C. S. Lewis and influence that the Inklings had on his life. The Inklings was, of course, the informal literary club that met at The Eagle and Child pub in Oxford, England.

Part 1

Part 2

From IDEAS of the CBC Radio:

 C.S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Owen Barfield and Charles Williams were the core of the legendary literary group The Inklings at Oxford University. They were united by a love of myth and the belief that it is through the imagination that reality is illuminated. In this two-part series producer Frank Faulk first explores the early life of C.S. Lewis, and the experiences that would shape him on his journey to becoming one of the 20th century’s greatest thinkers and writers on Christianity.
