Draw a Scene
Draw a scene from the novel. The Great Divorce is a fantastical image-filled novel and students can choose to draw the dismal Gray Town, the heraldic bus which takes the passengers to Heaven, or the scenes of the Foothills of the Shadow of the Living.
Write a Comparison
The Narnia Chronicles, C. S. Lewis' most famous literary work, is also a Christian allegory. Students familiar with this series can write a brief paper comparing the literary and Biblical allusions in The Great Divorce to those in The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. How do the themes compare?
Ask students to look in their local newspaper for an article that involves some aspect of the novel and bring it to class. They will present it in front of the class and explain why it relates to the novel.
