Diana Pavlac Glyer on Owen Barfield and the Inklings

by Anna Blanch on September 4, 2009

Diana Pavlac Glyer speaks about Owen Barfield on volume 88 of the Mars Hill Audio Journal.
Glyer is a Professor of English at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California whose work focuses on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the Inklings and specifically their writing in response to their community.

Her best-known work is The Company They Keep: C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien as Writers in Community, which describes the interaction and creative influence of Lewis, Tolkien and the Inklings. Published in 2007, the book challenged assumptions held for the past 30 years and is widely recognized as a landmark study. The Company They Keep won the Mythopoeic Scholarship Award (Inklings Studies) and was a finalist for the 2008 Hugo Award for Best Related Book at Denvention 3, the 66th World Science Fiction Convention. She has been selected the Scholar Guest of Honor for the 40th Annual Mythopoeic Conference, UCLA 2009.

I was fortunate to hear Dr. Pavlac Glyer speak at the Conference on Christianity and Literature Conference at George Fox University earlier this year. You can read about the paper I presented at that conference here.

Subscribers to the CD version of the MARS HILL AUDIO Journal receive an additional “bonus track” which are now available in MP3 format free to anyone who’d like to listen. Here is the full list of free interviews.
