Charles Williams’s Theology of Publishing
VII (2017)
  • Michael J. Paulus, Jr.
The British author Charles Williams (1886-1945), who is best known for his literary work as a poet, novelist, biographer, dramatist, literary critic, and lay theologian, was also an editor with Oxford University Press for nearly forty years. But Williams’s work in publishing was not incidental to his sense of vocation; it was an integral part of it. This is most clearly manifested in a trilogy of plays Williams created and performed with his colleagues at the midpoint of his career at OUP. These plays further reveal that Williams had a distinctive and robust theological view of the work of publishing.
