Owen Barfield is both the oldest and least known of The Inklings. His influence on Tolkien and Lewis is immense, yet his thought is rarely examined in his own right.
But Barfield may prove to be the most radical, far-reaching and prophetic of The Inklings.
This lecture gives a broad introduction to this thought and singles out aspects of his writing current to cultural crises.
The Revd. Dr. Malcolm Guite is Chaplain of Girton College Cambridge.
