The Inklings

Yesterday I posted excerpts from a C.S. Lewis essay that I found online at this site: The Inklings - Tolkien, Lewis, Williams, Barfield, et al. The site's self-description:
This website includes information and resources on the informal Oxford literary group, the Inklings. The Inklings included two of the most important writers of the twentieth century, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, the authors of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, respectively. Other key members of the Inklings were Charles Williams, Owen Barfield, Christopher Tolkien (J.R.R. Tolkien's son), Warren "Warnie" Lewis (C.S. Lewis's brother), Adam Fox, Hugo Dyson, R.A. "Humphrey" Havard, J.A.W. Bennett, Lord David Cecil, Nevill Coghill, Charles Leslie Wrenn, Colin Hardie, James Dundas-Grant, John Wain, R.B. McCallum, Gervase Mathew, Percy Bates, and C.E. Stevens.
