Upon returning to his own world, Edmund denies that he has been to Narnia. Soon afterwards, all four children enter Narnia together while hiding in the wardrobe. Lucy leads the group to Tumnus's home, but finds that it has been ransacked and that the faun has been arrested. The children are befriended by Mr. Beaver , a talking animal who takes them to his home.

He informs the Pevensies that because of the Witch, it is always winter and never Christmas in Narnia. He and his wife tell the children about a prophecy that the Witch's tyranny will end when "two Sons of Adam and two Daughters of Eve" sit on the four thrones of Cair Paravel , and that Narnia's true ruler — the great lion Aslan — is returning from a long absence.

Edmund slips away to the Witch's castle. In the courtyard, he is surprised by the many statues of Narnians the Witch has turned to stone. The Witch greets him coldly, as he has come alone and with news that Aslan — her enemy — is returning.

She takes Edmund prisoner and leaves the castle to find and capture the other Pevensie children. Meanwhile, the Beavers — correctly surmising that Edmund has betrayed them — take the other children to meet Aslan at the Stone Table.

As they travel, they find that the Witch's winter is giving way to spring. They are greeted by Father Christmas, who had been kept out of Narnia by the Witch's magic.

The group arrive at their destination as winter ends and are greeted by Aslan. The Witch's enforcer the wolf Maugrim approaches the camp and attacks Susan, but is killed by Peter. Aslan sends a rescue party for Edmund; it arrives just in time to save him from the Witch, who had decided to kill him.

The Witch parleys with Aslan, invoking the "Deep Magic" which gives her the right to kill Edmund for his treason.

Aslan denies her claim, but secretly trades his life for Edmund's. They watch from a distance as the Witch puts Aslan to death.

After the Witch and her followers depart to prepare for battle against Aslan's followers, Susan and Lucy remain with Aslan's body. In the morning, the girls find the Stone Table broken and Aslan restored to life. Aslan explains that the "Deeper Magic" has the power to reverse death if a willing victim takes the place of a traitor.

Aslan takes the two girls to the Witch's castle and revives the Narnians that the Witch had turned to stone. They join the Narnian forces battling the Witch's army. The Narnian army prevails, and Aslan kills the Witch. The Pevensie children are then crowned kings and queens of Narnia at Cair Paravel. After a long and happy reign, the Pevensies return to England during a hunt when they unintentionally pass the lamp-post and return through the wardrobe; they are children again, with no time having passed since their departure.

Their surname is not used in this story and will not be revealed until The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The house that shelters the Pevensie children is run by a Professor, staffed by servants, and frequently toured by historians.

The magical land of Narnia is populated by talking animals, mythological species, and sentient flora. Shortly before the Second World War many children were evacuated from London to the English countryside to escape bomber attacks on London by Nazi Germany. On 2 September three school girls, Margaret, Mary and Katherine, [7] [8] came to live at The Kilns in Risinghurst , Lewis's home three miles east of Oxford city centre.

Lewis later suggested that the experience gave him a new appreciation of children and in late September [9] he began a children's story on an odd sheet that has survived as part of another manuscript:. How much more of the story Lewis then wrote is uncertain.

Roger Lancelyn Green thinks that he might even have completed it. In September Lewis wrote in a letter about stories for children: The plot element of entering a new world through the back of a wardrobe had certainly entered Lewis's mind by , when he used it to describe his first encounter with really good poetry:. In August , during a visit by an American writer, Chad Walsh, Lewis talked vaguely about completing a children's book he had begun "in the tradition of E.

Nesbit ". Then everything changed. But then suddenly Aslan came bounding into it. I think I had been having a good many dreams of lions about that time. Apart from that, I don't know where the Lion came from or why he came. But once he was there, he pulled the whole story together, and soon he pulled the six other Narnian stories in after him. The major ideas of the book echo lines Lewis had written fourteen years earlier in his alliterative poem The Planets:. This resonance is a central component of the case, promoted chiefly by Oxford University scholar Michael Ward , for the seven Chronicles having been modelled upon the seven classical astrological planets, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe upon Jupiter.

After the meal Lewis read two chapters from his new children's story to Green.

Lewis asked Green's opinion of the tale and Green said that he thought it was good. Lucy Barfield received it by the end of May.

Lewis's publisher, Geoffrey Bles, allowed him to choose the illustrator for the novel and the Narnia series. Lewis chose Pauline Baynes , possibly based on J. Tolkien 's recommendation. Baynes had greatly impressed Tolkien with her illustrations for his Farmer Giles of Ham However, Baynes claimed that Lewis learned about her work after going into a bookshop and asking for a recommendation for an illustrator who was skilled at portraying both humans and animals.

In December , Bles showed Lewis the first drawings for the novel, and Lewis sent Baynes a note congratulating her, particularly on the level of detail. The British edition of the novel had 43 illustrations; American editions generally had fewer. The popular United States paperback edition published by Collier between and , which sold many millions, had only 17 illustrations, many of them severely cropped from the originals, giving many readers in that country a very different experience when reading the novel.

All the illustrations were restored for the worldwide HarperCollins edition, although these lacked the clarity of early printings. Lewis very much enjoyed writing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and embarked on the sequel Prince Caspian soon after finishing the first novel.

He completed the sequel by end of , less than a year after finishing the initial book. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe had few readers during and was not published until late in , so his initial enthusiasm did not stem from favourable reception by the public.

At the time it was fashionable for children's stories to be realistic; fantasy and fairy tales were seen as indulgent, appropriate only for very young readers and potentially harmful to older children, even hindering their ability to relate to everyday life.

Some reviewers considered the tale overtly moralistic or the Christian elements over-stated — attempts to indoctrinate children. Others were concerned that the many violent incidents might frighten children. Nevertheless, the novel and its successors were highly popular with young readers, and Lewis's publisher was soon eager to release further Narnia stories. A survey by the University of Worcester determined that it was the second most common book that UK adults had read as children, after Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Adults, perhaps limited to parents, ranked Alice and The Lion fifth and sixth as books the next generation should read, or their children should read during their lifetimes. Lewis wrote that "The Narnian books are not as much allegory as supposal. Suppose there were a Narnian world and it, like ours, needed redemption. What kind of incarnation and Passion might Christ be supposed to undergo there?

The main story is an allegory of Christ's crucifixion: Aslan is killed on the Stone Table, symbolizing Mosaic Law , which breaks when he is resurrected, symbolizing the replacement of the strict justice of Old Testament law with redeeming grace and forgiveness granted on the basis of substitutional atonement, according to Christian theology.

The character of the Professor is based on W. Kirkpatrick, who tutored a year-old Lewis. Narnia is caught in endless winter that has lasted a century when the children first enter.

Chronicles of Narnia

There are several parallels between the White Witch and the immortal white queen, Ayesha, of H. Rider Haggard 's She , a novel greatly admired by C. Edith Nesbit 's short story The Aunt and Amabel includes the motif of a girl entering a wardrobe to gain access to a magical place. The freeing of Aslan's body from the Stone Table is reminiscent of a scene from Edgar Allan Poe 's story " The Pit and the Pendulum ," in which a prisoner is freed when rats gnaw through his bonds.

One of the most significant themes seen in C.

Various aspects of characters and events in the novel reflect biblical ideas from Christianity. The lion Aslan is one of the largest examples, as his death is very similar to that of Jesus Christ.

The Lion, The Witch, And the Wardrobe - Annotations

While many readers made this connection, Lewis denied that the themes of Christianity were intentional, saying that his writing began by picturing images of characters, and the rest just came about through the writing process. After the children enter the world of Narnia through the wardrobe, Edmund finds himself in trouble under service of the White Witch , as she tempts him with Turkish Delights. When Edmund is threatened to be killed, Aslan offers to sacrifice himself instead.

Aslan is shaved of his fur, and stabbed on an altar of stone. This is similar to how Jesus was publicly beaten, humiliated, and crucified. After his sacrifice, Aslan is later reborn, and continues to help the children save Narnia. Aslan is also only dead for one night, and comes back the next morning, as opposed to Jesus returning on the third day.
