Charles Williams: The Third Inkling

Charles Williams: The Third Inkling by Grevel Lindop
(Oxford University Press, 2015, 464 pages)

I’ve been waiting a long time for this book to come out, and it did not disappoint. Charles Williams is the least famous of the three major members of the Oxford literary group known as the Inklings – the other two being C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. This is the first full biography that has been written about Williams. In many ways he was the strangest member of the Inklings, both in terms of his writing and his personal life. This book about an important twentieth century poet is definitely worth checking out. I’ll be writing more about it in a review that should appear in Literature and Theology.
