The Charles Williams Society

About the Charles Williams Society

The Society exists to promote the study and appreciation of the life and writings of Charles Walter Stansby Williams 1886-1945.

Charles Williams is probably best known, to those who have heard of him, as a leading member (albeit for a short time) of the Oxford literary group, the “Inklings”, whose chief figures were C. S.Lewis and J. R. R Tolkien. 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.

The Society meets twice a year, and publishes
The Charles Williams Quarterly, which normally includes the papers delivered at the meetings. It also occasionally has short residential conferences, the most recent having taken place on July 4th-6th, 2008. It maintains a lending and reference library.
