ebook ò The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe é C.S. Lewis

Narniathe land beyond the wardrobe door a secret place frozen in eternal winter a magical country waiting to be set freeLucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor's mysterious old ho “If ever they remembered their life in this world it was as one remembers a dream” The real world is boring; it’s mundane unimaginative and dry So humans create fantasy as a means of escape We watch movies or go to the theatre to see something interesting than the standard realities of the everyday We paint pictures and gaze up at the stars We play video games and roleplay We dream Authors like CS Lewis and JK Rowling show us this miserable world; they show us its tones of grey Then underneath it all they reveal something spectacular they reveal fantasy So we have four rather ordinary children about to embark on an extraordinary adventure As a child I used to always daydream I’ve always been somewhat introverted and would prefer imagining faraway places than existing in the now I still do this as an adult And this is why I love fantasy so much because it is so immersive; it literally takes my mind away Lucy Susan Edward and Peter are the lucky ones When they stumble across the wardrobe the gateway into a interesting realm they experience something spectacular “She did not shut it properly because she knew that it is very silly to shut oneself into a wardrobe even if it is not a magic one” Sure there’s a war going on And certainly there’s an evil witch going around murdering people But for me that’d be a price worth paying For in Narnia there is also Aslan and a whole bunch of interesting characters There is hope magic and companionship The wise old Aslan though is the star of the show He sacrifices himself for his friends for his people Though one issue I have with the book and one that makes me very much aware of the text as a construct is the uestions over why Aslan actually needed to the four children He pretty much deals with the problems by himself There’s prophecy involved but on a plot level he clearly could have sorted this mess out without any outside interference I’ve seen a lot of hate over these books because of the Christian allegories involved in the storytelling Now I find this somewhat stupid I’m not a Christian far from it but you can’t really criticise a book because of this It’s incredibly naïve It would be like judging Jane Eyre based on its feminism aspects or Shakespeare’s exploration of colonialism in The Tempest It’s silly This book is undeniable full of Christian dogmatism But it’s what the author wanted it to be If you read Tolkien’s work there are so many allusions the world wars; this doesn’t affect the overall storytelling It’s simply what is there Read this with an open mind as an English Literature student I read the bible I don’t believe the words inside but I can still enjoy the experience And this story is no different Take it for what it is “Wrong will be right when Aslan comes in sightAt the sound of his roar sorrows will be no When he bares his teeth winter meets its deathAnd when he shakes his mane we shall have spring again” And that’s something special I do however much prefer the works of Tolkien I feel that his writing is universal in terms of age audience With this though I’m very much aware of it as a children’s book The prose is designed to sound like a children’s bedtime story in places That’s not exactly a bad thing though I love Narnia but I can at least from my perspective objectively say that Tolkien was a better writer Though what Narnia does have is Aslan It’s hard not to Aslan Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if he met Gandalf?

The Lion the Witch and the WardrobeUse At first her brothers and sister don't believe her when she tells of her visit to the land of Narnia But soon Edmund then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe themselves In Narnia they find a country Y'all are out there watching Avengers Endgame while I am at home watching the classic 80s cartoon of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe A whole lotta nostalgia going onWhy am I watching it right now?Well I just finished a reread of the book and it is simply as magical as I remember It is a well written fantasy story that is not too complex and therefore is accessible to young and old alike It does indeed have Christian allegory but it is up to you whether you want to read it with that in mind or not One thing about the dialogue is that while it is simple there are some words and phrases that are dated to the time period it was written Because of this a dictionary may be helpful every so often throughout the book One place where Google came in uite handy was in the chapter about Turkish Delight It might have been common long ago or in other parts of the world but I was not uite sure what it isFinally the best part of this reread was that I read it out loud to my 7 and 5 year old It feels great to pass great books on to them Also it was magical to watch how much they enjoyed it They we're even drawing pictures of the characters and running around the house pretending to look for the wardrobeSide note some versions of the series have this as the first book Some have it as the second Even though I have read them all before I don't really have an opinion on the matter I think either order is just fine
