Charles Williams was a leading writer in the mid-years of the twentieth century,
probably best known as a leading member of the Oxford literary group, the Inklings,
whose chief figures were C.S.Lewis J.R.R Tolkien and Owen Barfield.
He was, however, a figure of enormous interest in his own right: a prolific author
of plays, fantasy novels (strikingly different in kind from those of his friends),
poetry, theology, biography and criticism
