Arthurian, Grail, Merlin & Taliesin Book Titles | The Arthurian Poems of Charles Williams ed. Grevel Lindop & John Matthews
    The Arthurian Poems of Charles Williams ed. Grevel Lindop & John Matthews      
Charles Williams is perhaps the least well known of the Inklings, the writers’ group based in Oxford which included J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. In making this collection of Williams’s major Arthurian poetry we have sought to make available again, after several years out of print, all his previously published verse on the abiding subject that dominated his work and life from the early 1900s to his death in 1945. The earliest work, published here for the first time since its original appearance in 1913, is the ‘Pageant Song of Gwent’, which shows Williams thinking about the Arthurian legends even this early. This, along with poems from Heroes and Kings (1930) and Three Plays (1931), comprises all of Williams’s early published work on the subject, and is followed by his mature work, contained in the two major sequences Taliessin Through Logres (1938) and The Region of the Summer Stars (1944), which form the centre of this collection, as well as several poems only ever printed in journals. The volume includes an Introduction by Grevel Lindop (biographer of Charles Williams) and an essay on Williams’s Arthurian work by John Matthews.
