Roger Lancelyn Green

Roger Lancelyn Green

Green became famous in life for his biographies and his collections of myths, folk tales, and legends for children.

A native of Norwich, England, Green studied under C.S. Lewis and was a member of the Inklings, a literary group led by Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien at Merton College, Oxford. At first Green took on various jobs such as acting, selling books, being a professor, and working as a librarian. His first attempts at fiction weren't very successful. But as a compiler, editor, and reteller of fairy tales, legends, and myths for children, Green flourished. His books such as King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table, Tales of Ancient Egypt, Adventures of Robin Hood, and Letters to Sherlock Holmes demonstrate his wide range of interest and talent.

Having visited Greece over twenty times, Green understood the history and mythology, which he used in writing Tales of the Greek Heroes, The Luck of Troy, and other books. Famous for his biographies of C.S. Lewis, Rudyard Kipling, Lewis Carroll, and Andrew Lang, Green also published for adults two volumes of verse, wrote articles for books and magazines, and worked as an editor of the "Children's Illustrated Classics" series. He died in 1987.
