C.S.Lewis and J.R.R.Tolkein, two authors who created worlds of fantasy and magic that have laid down a never dying veil of mystique over the world. Theres Narnia with Aslan and the white witch, fueling a childs imagination with amazing talking beasts and then theres Middle Earth with the Hobbits, Elves, Dwarves and so many more mythical creatures given life to inspire us to dream.
Lewis and Tolkeins friendship is legendary. They were both professors at Oxford with a flair for inventing fairy tales that were so much more than bed time spin offs. All their dialogues and debates over their favourite topics, which constituted theology, myth and literature, have been recorded for the benefit of future generations. Their most famous works would have never seen the light of day had not the other given them the encouragement and advice needed.
Their exposure to Celtic myths and biblical stories had them believing that stories of fantasy did so much more than just entertain and delight toddlers, they aimed at bringing back that spark, the ability to conjure images that defy reality, back in an adults life.
They formed a club called the Inklings which brought together deans and students of Oxford University together to discuss books featuring science-fiction and fantasy. Chapters would be read out loud and discussed with a general atmosphere of amiability and humor.
The author duo also sought to contribute to the genre of science fiction. With the toss of a coin, Tolkein was to pen a novel that dealt with time travel and Lewis had to produce one revolving around space travel. While C.S.Lewiss trilogy was published and popularly received by the public, Tolkein wasnt as successful with his writing on science fiction.
Nevertheless their famous bond has been the foundation of several books without which the world would surely be a dark place.
