Tolkien and Lewis


I stayed in C S Lewis' house near Oxford and apparently he and Tolkien used to meet. There's a wood at the back of the house which was very spooky and you can see where they got their inspiration. Nice artwork.


  1. That's neat. I'd read that they were friends. I think they formed a writer's group called the "Inklings" with some of their friends. {Smile}

    1. I wasn't aware of that. thanks, Anne :)

    2. I wasn't really aware of it myself, until I found a friend was involved in a fan group that called themselves "The Inklings." They'd named themselves after Tolkien's and Lewis's group because they were interested in both Tolkien's writing and Lewis's. {SMILE}
