We are delighted to report that Dr Bradley Wells, Head of English, has the distinction of having his essay, 'Camelot Incarnate', published as part of the collection of essays entitled 'The Inklings and King Arthur: J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, C. S. Lewis, and Owen Barfield on the Matter of Britain'.
The book examines how J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis (OM.1913-4), Charles Williams and Owen Barfield brought hope to their times and our own by their Arthurian literature. It is particularly fitting that Dr Wells has written about 'The Inklings' because of Malvern College's close connection with that distinguished group of writers. C.S. Lewis, author of many well-known works such as the Chronicles of Narnia, was schooled at Malvern College just before the First World War. Lewis's works of fiction, which captured the imagination of his public, especially in the dark days after the Second World War have earned him a place in literary history.
