From the publisher
Will King Arthur ever return to England? He already has.
In the midst of war-torn Britain, King Arthur returned in the writings of the Oxford Inklings. Learn how J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield brought hope to their times and our own in their Arthurian literature.
Although studies of the "Oxford Inklings" abound, astonishingly enough, none has yet examined their great body of Arthurian work. Yet each of these major writers tackled serious and relevant questions about government, gender, violence, imperialism, secularism, and spirituality through their stories of the Quest for the Holy Grail. This rigorous and sophisticated volume studies does so for the first time.
