Settings Master Page

A Grief Observed is a collection of Lewis’ reflections on the experience of bereavement following the death of his wife, Joy Davidman in 1960. The book was first published in 1961 under the pseudonym N.W. Clerk as Lewis wished to avoid identification as the author. Though republished in 1963 after his death under his own name, the text still refers to his wife as “H” (her first name, which she rarely used, was Helen). The book is compiled from the four notebooks which Lewis used to vent and explore his grief. Seven settings of the work currently exist.
