A Grief Observed

by C. S. Lewis

Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moment," 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 beautiful and unflinchingly homest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and how he can gradually regain his bearings.

Lewis también considera las preguntas acerca del sexo, la posesividad, los celos, el orgullo, el falso sentimentalismo, los buenos y malos modales al amar y la necesidad de más risas entre amantes. Hay riesgos que acompañan las recompensas del amor, nos advierte el autor, pero nos recomienda que los aceptemos, ya que "el único lugar fuera del Cielo donde uno puede estar perfectamente a salvo de todos los peligros y las perturbaciones del amor es el Infierno."

Lewis nos muestra que un cristiano debe no sólo aceptar sino también regocijarse de los milagros como testimonios de la participación de Dios en la creación.
