Summary After two World Wars, a group of Oxford University tutors recast the horrors of war by creating a new genre: fantasy. Meetings of the Inklings gave birth to The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings. The Inklings were motivated by traditional forces, but the Movement represented the absolute opposite. Young writers, such as John Braine and Kingsley Amis, wrote about class, money, sex and religion. (From the UK) (Masterpiece) (Documentary) (Part 2 of 3) PG
