The new issue will be out in a week! With articles on C.S. Lewis’s Till We Have Faces by Barfield scholar Jamie Hutchinson and Oxford classicist Mark Edwards, the first full account of Edward Tangye Lean’s original Inklings student group, and a groundbreaking, complete chart of Dorothy L. Sayers’ use of the four gospels in The Man Born to be King, this will be an indispensable resource for scholars of C.S. Lewis, Dorothy L. Sayers, and the Inklings.
The new issue of the Journal of inklings Studies, due out next week, includes an unpublished letter from C.S. Lewis to Owen Barfield (1949), recently discovered at the Bodleian Archives in Oxford by Tiffany Martin, concerning his brother’s alcoholism and a proposed change to the ending of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The letter is accompanied by a long introduction by Walter Hooper, giving the fullest account to date of Warnie’s long struggle with alcoholism.
