Written after his spouse’s tragic demise as a method of surviving the “mad midnight moments”, A Grief Noticed is C.S. Lewis’s sincere reflection on the basic problems with life, demise, and religion within the midst of loss. This work incorporates his concise, real reflections on that interval: “Nothing will shake a person, or at any price a person like me, out of his merely verbal considering and his merely notional beliefs. He must be knocked foolish earlier than he involves his senses. Solely torture will deliver out the reality. Solely underneath torture does he uncover it himself.”
This can be a stunning and unflinchingly sincere report of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of that means within the universe, and the way he can steadily regain his bearings.
