Dieter Petzold

«Inklings» nannte sich eine Gruppe von Schriftstellern und Geisteswissenschaftlern in Oxford, deren bekannteste Mitglieder J.R.R. Tolkien und C.S. Lewis waren. Die Inklings-Gesellschaft e.V. widmet sich seit 1983 dem Studium und der Verbreitung der Werke dieser und ihnen nahestehender Autoren sowie der Analyse des Phantastischen in Literatur, Film und Kunst allgemein. Ihre Jahrestagungen werden in Jahrbüchern dokumentiert. Dieser Band enthält zehn Vorträge der Tagung C.S. Lewis – 50 Jahre nach seinem Tod, die 2013 in Aachen stattfand, um eine Einschätzung des Werks des Schriftstellers, Literaturwissenschaftlers und Laientheologen Lewis und seiner Wirkung vorzunehmen, sowie fünf weitere Beiträge und zahlreiche Rezensionen.
«Inklings» was the name of a group of Oxford scholars and writers; its best-known members were J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. The German Inklings-Gesellschaft, founded in 1983, is dedicated to the discussion and dissemination of the works of these authors and of writers commonly associated with them and to the study of the fantastic in literature, film and the arts in general. The proceedings of the annual Inklings conferences are being published in yearbooks. This volume contains ten papers presented at the 2013 conference on C.S. Lewis – 50 years after his death in Aachen that attempted a re-evaluation of the author, literary scholar and lay theologian Lewis and an assessment of his impact. In addition, there are five general articles and numerous reviews.

Robert Williams Woods How to Tell the Birds from the Flowers

By other Nature books I’m sure, You’ve often been misled, You’ve tried a wall-flower to secure. And “picked a hen” instead: You’ve wondered what the egg-plants lay, And why the chestnut’s burred, And if the hop-vine hops away, It’s perfectly absurd. I hence submit for your inspection, This very new and choice collection, Of flowers on Storks, and Phlox of birds, With some explanatory words. Not every one is always able To recognize a vegetable, For some are guided by tradition, While others use their intuition, And even I make no pretense Of having more than common sense. Indeed these strange homologies Are in most flornithologies, And I have freely drawn upon The works of Gray and Audubon, Avoiding though the frequent blunders Of those who study Nature’s wonders.
