The Inklings was the name of an informal literary group whose membership included J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Owen Barfield and Charles Williams. Tolkien's son Christopher was also involved. The group was based out of the University of Oxford, England, as most of its members were academics there. It met between the 1930s and the 1960s.


  • The members read and reviewed each other's unfinished works. The Lord of the Rings was first read and commented by the Inklings members.
