Group Description

For discussion of the works of the literary group the Inklings, whose members included Charles Williams, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Owen Barfield and several others. It is also for discussing their philosophy, theology and literary criticism and related topics.

This forum is called NeoInklings, partly to distinguish it from the original group, as it would be presumptuous to pretend to be a continuation of it, and yet also to indicate that this group has similar interests, including works of the original Inklings and their associates.

While there are other mailing lists for discussing the works of the Inklings, this differs somewhat in being unspecialised. It is not just for discussing their fantasy, or for their children's books, or their poetry, or their plays, but any and all of these, including comparison with other authors who were not members of the group. It is not just for discussing one of the Inklings, concentrating on Lewis, or Tolkien, or Williams, but all of them, and similar authors like Madeleine l'Engle and G.K. Chesterton.

Those who enjoy works by the Inklings often wish they had written more, since the original Inklings are all dead, the only way there will be more is if people write more works in similar genres. So like the original Inklings, NeoInklings can submit their work for reading and criticism by other members of the group.
