Product Description

''No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear.'' This intensely personal journal, written by Lewis after the death of his wife, probes the ''mad midnight moments'' of his mourning; moments when he questioned his beliefs in life and death, marriage, and even God. With brief, poignant insights, Lewis puts into words the feelings and struggles we all go through when we've lost a loved one. This thoughtful gift edition includes a foreword by Madeleine L'Engle. 89 pages, hardcover from HarperCollins.

Publisher's Description

A classic work on grief, A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis’s honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. Written after his wife’s tragic death as a way of surviving the “mad midnight moments,” A Grief Observed an unflinchingly truthful account of how loss can lead even a stalwart believer to lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and the inspirational tale of how he can possibly regain his bearings. 

Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo.

Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año.

    This book is right where I am. I felt and still feel the same thoughts and feelings as CS did in his experience with Joy. Great book and "a must read" for those dealing with Grief.

    Good things do indeed come in small packages. Lewis' work on grief so clearly expresses what I felt when my own spouse died. His elegant yet sparse writing captures the essence of grief and the doubts and questions that haunt the mourner. I refer back to this book often in moments of overwhelming grief. My own copy is worn from continual use. The work is so masterful that I keep several copies on hand to give as gifts to those who have experienced a recent death of a loved one. Lewis seems to hold back nothing as he sweeps us along on his own private journey through tragic loss and faith reborn. Far from sugar-coated or trite, Lewis lets us into his own pain and own search for comfort. He boldly addresses the big questions like, "How could God do this?" The book is not depressing, it's affirming in that we see that our own grief is not so different from the grief of others, even at a point in life when we feel so disconnected and like no one understands what it's REALLY like to lose a spouse. Lewis understood what it was really like and he unabashedly tells us. If you or someone you love has lost a loved one, particularly a much-loved spouse, get this book.
