C. S. LEWIS’ THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA- THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE AS AN ALLEGORY

Ms. K. Priscilla Harshini, Dr. M. Nagalakshmi.

Abstract
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis is a series of seven books. The Magician‟s Nephew (1955), The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (1950), The Horse and His Boy (1954), Prince Caspian (1951), The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952), The Silver Chair (1953) and The Last Battle (1956). The stories centre on the magical land Narnia, which is filled with mythological creatures and talking animals. The great lion, Aslan, is a Christ- figure in the series, appearing in each book. He watches over Narnia and intervenes throughout its history. The Magician‟s Nephew explains how Aslan first created Narnia. Digory, a young boy, and his neighbour, Polly, use magic rings to travel between different worlds. They witness Aslan creating Narnia, and are responsible for enabling the evil White Witch to enter its borders. Digory and Polly bury their magic rings with an apple core from a Narnian tree; a new apple tree grows from its seeds, and Digory uses its wood to build the wardrobe that the Pevensies use to enter Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tells how Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter Pevensie discover Narnia by walking through a magic wardrobe. The children join Aslan‟s army and fight the White Witch. The Witch attempts to defeat Aslan by demanding Edmund‟s life. Aslan offers his life to the Witch instead; however, after she kills him, he rises from the dead and defeats her with his army of talking beasts. In the end, he crowns the Pevensie children kings and queens of Narnia.

Key words: Fantasy, Fantastical world, Magic, Allegory and Mythical Creatures.
