Mary V. Borhek


Disagrees with Walter Hooper’s contention that Lewis’s marriage was never consummated. Uses excerpts from A Grief Observed as well as letters of Lewis, Davidman, and others. Discusses claims that A Grief Observed is fictionalized, not autobiographical, but concludes the latter is true.
