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.)
