[ Rosley Books - for Antiquarian books, Theology, Literature & History ] ADAM FOX (1883 - 1977), Canon, was the Dean of Divinity at Magdalen College, Oxford. He was one of the first members of the 'Inklings', a literary group which also included C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Between 1938 and 1942 he was Professor of Poetry. Later he became Canon of Westminster Abbey and he is buried there in Poet's Corner. He was also Warden (Headmaster) of the famous Radley College. During his time at Oxford, he wrote this long poem in four books 'Old King Coel'. It gets its name from King Cole, legendary British father of the Roman Empress Helena, the mother of the Emperor Constantine. As Professor of Poetry, Fox advocated poetry which is intelligible to readers, and gives enough pleasure to be read again. This was important to him because poetry which is not re-read will not be understood properly, and will therefore be irrelevant. This advocacy can be understood as a criticism against some forms of modern poetry. Although not considered one of the most important Inklings, Fox's works are still of interest, particularly those concerning Christianity and Platonism. **our listings here represents a small percentage of our stock of Inklings books! **We would love to hear from you** 8vo. .
