Some Lewis-Tolkien books

I'm bummed by this site. Nothing on my favorite Inkling, Charles Williams!

Bilbo said...

I love Charles Williams, also, but it's not a site devoted to the Inklings.

Bilbo said...

Too bad Tolkien didn't share our interest:

Bilbo said...

Who knew that there was a Charles Williams Society that we could join?

I expect Williams has had a good laugh at this.

I like W.H Auden's descrption from here:

"The poet W. H. Auden, who worked with Williams on a collection of Poetry he edited for Oxford University Press, had perhaps a stronger response... Many years after first meeting Williams, he would recall that interview in surprising terms and mark it as one of the events that led him to embrace the Christian faith:
'For the first time in my life, [I] felt myself in the presence of personal sanctity.... I had met many good people before who made me feel ashamed of my own shortcomings but in the presence of this man... I did not feel ashamed. I felt transformed into a person who was incapable of doing or thinking anything base or unloving (I later discovered that he had had a similar effect on many other people.)'
