The Inklings was the name of an informal literary group mainly of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Owen Barfield, Hugo Dyson, Nevill Coghill, and Charles Williams. Tolkien's son Christopher was also involved for a short time. The group would often meet on Thursdays and Tuesdays, sometimes at the Oxford pub of The Eagle and the Child and at other times at Lewis' rooms in Magdalen College, to read and criticize the each member's literary work-in-progress.

Among notable novels first read to The Inklings were The Lord of the Rings, and Lewis's Out of the Silent Planet. 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 on by the Inklings members.
