Provides a thematic survey of the criticism about C.S. Lewis' seven fantasies about Narnia
In 1950, Clive Staples Lewis published the first in a series of children’s stories that became The Chronicles of Narnia. The now vastly popular Chronicles are a widely known testament to the religious and moral principles that Lewis embraced in his later life. What many readers and viewers do not know about the Chronicles is that a close reading of the seven-book series reveals the strikingly effective influences of literary sources as diverse as George MacDonald’s fantastic fiction and the courtly love poetry of the High Middle Ages. Arguably the two most influential sources for the series are Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queen and John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Lewis was so personally intrigued by these two particular pieces of literature that he became renowned for his scholarly studies of both Milton and Spenser. This book examines the important ways in which Lewis so clearly echoes The Faerie Queen and Paradise Lost, and how the elements of each work together to convey similar meanings. Most specifically, the chapters focus on the telling interweavings that can be seen in the depiction of evil, female characters, fantastic and symbolic landscapes and settings, and the spiritual concepts so personally important to C.S. Lewis.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tells the story of four adventurous children: Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie, who have been evacuated to the English countryside in 1940 following the outbreak of World War II. They discover a wardrobe in Professor Digory Kirke's house that leads to the magical land of Narnia. Narnia is a charming, once peaceful land inhabited by talking beasts, dwarfs, fauns, and giants. Unfortunately, it has been frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. The arrival of the children, with the return of the Great Lion Aslan , gives Narnia hope for liberation . . . but with a great sacrifice.
