2016 Colloquium Book

Inklings Forever, Volume X: Papers from the 10th Frances White Ewbank Colloquium on C.S. Lewis & Friends 


The year 2016 marked the 90th anniversary of the first meeting of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien – a creative friendship of truly epic proportions. In June 2016, the 10th Biennial Frances Ewbank Colloquium on C. S. Lewis and Friends convened at Taylor University with the special theme of “friendship.” Many of the essays and creative pieces collected in this book explore the important relationships of Inklings-related authors, as well as the relationships between those authors and other, sometimes rather surprising, “friends.”

“What a feast! It is rare that a book of proceedings captures the energy and spirit of the conference itself: this one does. . . . I learned a great deal from this very fine collection. I recommend it.” Diana Plavec Glyer, Professor of English and Azusa Pacific University and author of The Company They Keep and Bandersnatch.

“The folks at Taylor University have done it again. This colloquium proceedings volume is a rich and tantalizing mix of scholarly studies, reflections, and creative work.” Charles Huttar, Professor Emeritus, Hope College, editor of Imagination and the Spirit.

“The road of Inklings studies goes ever on and on, and few pleasures are sweeter than the fellowship along the way. Many of these conference essays illumine the relationships behind the books we love. Among the gems are an overdue recovery of Albert Lewis, new light on the Sayers-Lewis correspondence, and an account of Lewis’s debt to composer Richard Wagner.” Chris R. Armstrong, author of Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians.
