- Oct 1, 2002That reminds me that one of the articles in my quick & dirty MLA search
compared Lewis and White. For what it's worth.

For what it's worth, in 1947 C.S. Lewis wrote to T.H. White, issuing him an
open-ended invitation to visit Oxford and meet "some admirers," probably a
reference to the Inklings. I don't think there's a record of whether White
responded to this, and there's certainly no record that he ever came.
(Info from an article by Joe Christopher - hi, Joe! - on Lewis letters held
at the Univ. of Texas, published in CSL, Nov. 1980)
A few years earlier, Lewis had written similarly to E.R. Eddison, who not
only came and met some of the Inklings, but had such a good time he came
back for another visit the next year, and might have done so again had he
not soon died.
