Christopher 1 Taylor Christopher Professor Wicks LIT 209 October 15, 2013 A Grief Observed: Literature Response 1) Briefly research the life of C.S. Lewis on an academically credible website or two online and respond: a) who is C.S. Lewis., and b) what were the circumstances that surrounded the writing of his text, A Grief Observed? (Note: If you include common knowledge, such as “he was a pro- fessor at the University of Oxford” you do not need to include a Works Cited page. If you quote specific material, be sure to include a Works Cited page.) Clive Staples Lewis is one of the most highly recognized intellectuals from the 20th cen- tury and considered by many to be the most influential Christian writer of his time. The primary circumstance that surrounded the writing of this text is the emotional pain he suffered in response to the loss of his wife to cancer. He logically discusses his thoughts, struggles, questions, and emotions and ties them in with his religious beliefs. 2) Name and describe the three most important ideas in Chapter 1. Three of the most important ideas in Chapter 1 include God’s role and how Lewis’s per- ception of God is being challenged following his wife’s death. Lewis reflects on pages (6-7), “The conclusion I dread is not ‘So there’s no God after all,’ but ‘So this is what God’s really like.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
