J.R.R. Tolkien And C.S. Lewis: The Story Of A Friendship
The friendship between J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis lasted nearly forty years and was for each the most important creative collaboration in their lives. The two met in Oxford in 1926. They were both survivors of the First World War, both academics and, as children, their lives were both dominated by imagination. However, they had very different upbringings. Tolkien was a Roman Catholic while Lewis, initially a Protestant and then an atheist for many years, later advocated what he called 'mere Christianity'. Thus by different routes both Lewis and Tolkien found a way to express truths that lie deeper than surface appearance. Colin Duriez's lively account is the first to focus primarily on this remarkable literary association, exploring the origins of the mythological worlds which both writers placed at the centre of their fiction.
