The Faber Sessions #7, Part III: A Portrait of a Literary Artist
April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Great Divorce: A Dream (1945). Warnie, Lewis’ brother, writing in his diary for 16 April 1933: “Jack has a new idea for a religious work, based on the opinion of some of the Fathers [i.e., the Fathers of the Church – the greatest of the Christian teachers in the early centuries of Christianity], that while punishment for the damned is eternal, if is intermittent. He proposes to do sort of an infernal [i.e., something to do with Hell] day-excursion to Paradise. I shall be very interested to see how he handles it.” (This reference from Walter Hooper.)
About The Faber Sessions:
We are bringing our concentration to bear, in this first half of 2022, on different members of the Oxford Inklings (our “Guests” at The Night School) and on less well known but important literary works of C.S. Lewis (The Faber Sessions).
During the pandemic, during those days when all of us were “stuck” at home together, we offered the Faber Sessions once a week, in your homes (via ZOOM), as our way of allowing you as families to be reading together, and finding in what you read an enrichment of your in-house conversations.
But now we offer the Faber Sessions once a month, on the evening the first Mondays, 6 PM to 7:30 PM. For now, the Faber Sessions will always be in your homes (via ZOOM), while we will eventually return to in-person evenings with The Night School, whenever the pandemic will allow us to return to in-person.
The Faber Sessions, Series 7, begins in February and concludes in June: five Sessions.
