by Dale Nelson

C. S. Lewis’s admirers have long appreciated a couple of autobiographies by pupils (and friends) of Lewis, published in his lifetime—John Wain’s Sprightly Running and Bede Griffiths’ The Golden String. Wain’s account of the wartime Inklings meetings, and the popularity of Lewis’s Oxford Socratic Club debates and Charles Williams’s rhapsodic lectures on Milton, belongs to a later period of Lewis’s career than Griffiths’ record of Lewis as a young scholar and tutor at Magdalene College.
