Online Conversation | Suffering, Friendship, and Courage: What C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien Teach us about Resilience and Imagination
On Friday, April 24th The Trinity Forum hosted Senior Fellow and history professor Dr. Joseph Loconte to discuss the friendship and legacy of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Loconte highlights how their refusal to become disillusioned and disenchanted in the aftermath of World War I allowed for some of the greatest works of literature in modern history. Their example of resilience and imagination is especially inspiring for us in the midst of this pandemic. We were reminded of the surprising return of hope for those who look up—as Samwise Gamgee says “…in the end the shadow was only a small and passing thing. There was light and high beauty forever beyond it’s reach.”
