Abstract:  Scholar D.G. Kehl defines Sehnsucht as a deeper emotion than simply a strong wish for something.  Throughout his various works of fiction, such as The Chronicles of Narnia (1950-1956), Till We Have Faces (1956), and The Great Divorce (1945), C.S Lewis demonstrates the philosophical approach which he devises in Mere Christianity (1952) concerning the sehnsucht for a God who is "farther back and higher up" (43).
