by | Read by Robert Whitfield [Simon Vance]

Classics • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1943

These two short works by Lewis are a fine introduction to his eloquent writing, as well as his thought. Although labeled second, "The Great Divorce" starts off this recording. In this work the narrator takes a bus trip that unexpectedly gives him a vision of heaven and hell as he travels through the afterworld. Lewis's view of the afterlife gives us his insights into the nature of good and evil. "The Abolition of Man" is an eloquent and erudite essay concerning what education should be and how far from this standard modern education has fallen. Robert Whitfield's disciplined and well-modulated voice has an appealingly confident quality. Whether or not one agrees with Lewis's arguments, it is a joy to hear writing so eloquent.
