In 1965, because of the growing interest in these seven British authors,
Dr. Clyde S Kilby of Wheaton College
conceived the idea of starting a collection.
Beginning with a small number of books and letters by C S Lewis,
the Marion E Wade Center
now holds thousands of
manuscripts, letters, first editions and other primary material.
Fifteen years later, in 1980, Dr Barbara Reynolds, Dr Kilby and Dr Beatrice Batson founded SEVEN: An Anglo-American Literary Review. Born out of the need and opportunity for discussion and balanced assessment of these writers, SEVEN is intended for both the general and specialised reader.
From the Co-Founder:
It is a privilege to serve this journal and the work of the seven authors which it represents. Thinkers, novellists, creators of new worlds, poets, dramatists, Christian believers, innovators in all they undertook, they set a high standard of intellectual integrity and imaginative achievement. We have still much to learn from them and about them. Their influence, severally and in combination, continues to be far-reaching and an inspiration to all who value creative excellence.
|“SEVEN will be of enormous interest to anyone who
cares about English literature and, particularly, about fine literature
which is also Christian.”
Madeleine L’Engle, Writer and Lecturer
|“The seven writers highlighted in this journal were by no means
artists for art’s sake: they were idea-oriented, involved always with
perennial matters. Their deepest concerns are still our concerns, and
SEVEN promises to conduct an interdisciplinary dialogue of major
