Tolkein and Lewis

Course Description: J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were both orphaned as children, saw their childhood village swallowed by a city, studied language and literature at Oxford, were nearly killed in World War I France, taught and lived in Oxford, collaborated in writing, discussed faith, and created (as fantasy writers) their own mythologies of places where the sacred is threatened by the spread of evil. Our travels will follow the lives of these two writers from childhoods in Northern Ireland and Birmingham, to England’s national center of London, to the battlefields of France, and back to the universities they loved to see how and why modernization, mechanized war, disenchantment, and ideas of heroism figure in their work.
