Abstract

The author takes two approaches in this discussion of The Great Divorce: enumerating the medieval sources and analogues for Lewis’s story, particularly The Divine Comedy but also other dream-visions such as The Romance of the Rose; and seeking out modern parallels and inspirations, such as Forster’s “The Celestial Omnibus” but more importantly Tolkien’s “Leaf by Niggle” and Williams’s All Hallows’ Eve.
