Next week’s issue of the Journal of Inklings Studies will bring to light an unpublished letter from C.S. Lewis to Owen Barfield (1949). The letter was —
recently discovered at the Bodleian Archives in Oxford by Tiffany Martin, concerning his brother’s alcoholism and a proposed change to the ending of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The letter is accompanied by a long introduction by Walter Hooper, giving the fullest account to date of Warnie’s long struggle with alcoholism.
