Charles Williams: A Celebration

Edited by Brian Horne


Charles Williams, author of spiritual thriller, theological essays and original literary studies, was in his day a popular and influential figure, and a member of the inklings, that renowned group of writers which also included C S Lewis and J R R Tolkein.  Today whilst his novels still have their readers, his other works and the details of his own life are unknown by a public for whom Lewis and Tolkein are still household names.

Such obscurity is ill-deserved, and this collection of essays contains eighteen contributions by a distinguished group of writers and academics.   Themes of his writings are explored with subtlety and creativity and the overall effect is to present a picture of a writer of rare imaginative power.
