Description - J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis by Colin Duriez

Thus by different routes both Lewis and Tolkien found a way to express truths that lie deeper than surface appearance. Colin Duriez's book is the first to focus primarily on this remarkable literary association, exploring the origins of the mythological worlds which both writers placed at the centre of their fiction. He does not flinch from exploring their differences - Tolkien did not have a high opinion of some of Lewis's Christian writings and Lewis famously found Tolkien's elves too much of a good thing - but he argues that, so close was this collaboration that without Tolkien there would have been no Lewis, and without Lewis, no Tolkien.
