A Grief Observed
C. S. Lewis
Biography & Memoir
Jul 29, 2018
Although not as widely popular as The Chronicles of Narnia, C. S. Lewis’s many works of Christian reflection, such as The Problem of Pain and Mere Christianity, have proven enduringly valuable to people of faith (and even to those possessed by doubt). Yet no book Lewis wrote in any vein has likely provided as much practical and spiritual consolation as A Grief Observed, his searching meditation on the anguish he suffered upon the death of his wife after a brief, intensely happy marriage.

An excellent companion for dealing with the loss of a loved one (or simply lost love). At 24, newly dumped and blindsided by life, I treasured A Grief Observed for its ability to put into words what I was feeling but couldn't express. Incredibly comforting, cathartic, and ultimately hopeful.

Downwind from heartache and trials, it is crucial to reflect on how those things impact the self. In ways hard to express, C. S. Lewis is the king of those things which are subtle but vital.
