C.S. Lewis, Author
(1898-1963)
The Inklings J.R.R. Tolkien Charles Williams Other Inklings


C.S. Lewis was one of the most popular and beloved British writers of twentieth century. Born in 1898 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Clive Staples Lewis (called “Jack”) grew up creating imaginary worlds, which later grew into his best known stories, The Chronicles of Narnia. After experiencing the death of his mother, a Dickensian boarding school, and the bloody trench warfare of World War I, Lewis abandoned the Christian faith of his childhood. He became an Oxford don and later a Cambridge professor, teaching and publishing works on Medieval and Renaissance literature. At Oxford, Lewis met fellow don J.R.R. Tolkien. The two men formed the literary society, the Inklings, with several of their Oxford colleagues and friends. Lewis encouraged Tolkien in his creation of The Lord of the Rings, while Tolkien helped lead Lewis back to a deep Christian faith. Once he converted to Christianity, Lewis poured out a stream of Christian apologetics and fiction, including Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Space Trilogy, and The Great Divorce. He is now remembered as a prolific and accessible Christian writer, as well as one of the fathers of modern fantasy literature.
