Description

Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moments," A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period: "Nothing will shake a man--or at any rate a man like me out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself." This is a record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe and how he can gradually regain his bearings.
