"And will you teach us Death?" asked the Lady to Weston's shape, where it stood above her.

"Yes", it said, "it is for this that I came here, that you may have Death in abundance".

How what we once read as fantasy, as an allegory for supernatural evil, has now become, beyond Lewis's wildest imaginings, a prophetic image of the world we inhabit.

There are those who predict that this present pestilence will advance apace the nightmare of Weston's Head. But then, as you clearly intend to remind us, that's not how it ends, is it?

Happy Easter, dear Father Hunwicke, for it shall be.
