However, Edmund, Peter, and Susan all eventually meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. Sadly, trouble arises as the four children try to save the magical world of Narnia from the clutches of the evil White Witch, otherwise known as Queen Jadis. Quite wittingly, the White Witch lures Edmund into believing that she can give him power if he brings his siblings to her. When two Sons of Adam and two Daughters of Eve fill the four thrones, Narnia would break free from the Witch’s eternal winter spell. But when Edmund agrees to the Witch’s offer, he shatters the only way of stopping the White Witch from ruling Narnia forever.
C.S. Lewis in The Lion, The Witch, And the Wardrobe discusses the hardship the children are going through with the use of his creatively made up universe called Narnia. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, And the Wardrobe take places during the World War II bombings of London. Lucy and her three siblings are evacuated from their home because of the air strikes of the war. As an outcome, they 're sent to a country house to live with a man referred to as the professor, far from the war where they will be safe.The youngsters are left alone without their parents.
3. Why did the Israelites refuse to worship the Pharaoh? The Israelites refused because they believed in Allah and in His Messengers. Pharaoh, therefore, became very angry with the Israelites. 4.
While playing a game of hide-and-seek, Lucy- the youngest- ended up finding a wardrobe that leads to this magical land called Narnia. She and her siblings are part of the prophecy to save Narnia from the evil White Witch and take back in control with Aslan- the good Lion and the ruler of the magical country. In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis’s use of symbolism reveals the major connection between the characters and Christianity, as seen revealed in Alsan and the White Witch. Lewis up in a Christian household, which explains why Lewis’s main genre was Christianity.
As I read for the first time The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe I was amazed by all the Christian symbolism within the story. I was impressed by C. S. Lewis’s ability to take theology and transform it into a children’s novel. One that would open the door for generations of nonbelievers to become intrigued by a story about a world full of fictional characters that is actually based on Bible stories. Aslan is one of the many fictional characters in Narnia and I would like to examine his role in the story, who he represents and determine if his portrayal of his Biblical counterpart was accurately portrayed. In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) by C. S. Lewis, Mr. Beaver says, as he is referring to Aslan, “Course he isn’t safe.
First of all, during World War 2, Hitler was the commander of the German empire and had full control over the Aryans and the Nazis. He could send them to do work for him and even send them to war. This is very similar to the character, the white witch, in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The white witch is the queen of Narnia and has a massive dark army that she can control. Throughout the book, we can see that she has full authority as she has the power to turn creatures into stone for disobedience and send her whole army to battle, which is a much larger army than Aslan’s.
In book two Jim describes a dream that he had of Lena coming to him “across the stubble barefoot, in a short skirt, with a curved reaping-hook in her hand, and she was flushed like the dawn, with a kind of luminous rosiness all about her” (135-136). He goes on to wish that he could have this dream about Antonia, but is unable to. As explained in an article about the psychoanalytic theory by Saul McLeod, a Psychology Tutor at The University of Manchester, dreams portray what feelings lay in the subconscious. Jim's inability to have this dream about Antonia shows that though Jim may be unaware, his true feelings are for Lena. When taking a psychoanalytical approach to My Antonia, it becomes apparent that Lena Lingard is the central female character.
In John Steinbeck’s novel, East of Eden, the author explores mankind’s endeavor to overcome internal and worldly evil by utilizing biblical allusions and circular prose. One can infer that the novel is a great biblical allusion with the story of Cain and Abel from the Book of Genesis being a reoccurring insinuation. Steinbeck applies these biblical allusions to specify the moral and immoral characters in his novel. For example, Charles Trask receives a “long and crinkled scar” on his forehead that “turns dark brown” while he is filled with a malevolent rage (46). Later on in the story, Cathy Ames is also marked with a scar during a grisly altercation with the pimp she was exploiting.
In 1 Samuel, the Israelites ask Samuel for a King for their people. Samuel then asks God for a king of the Israelites. God replies, “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king,” (1 Samuel 8:7). Samuel then tells the Israelites about what God has said, and warns them to to no longer ask for a king. However, the Israelites do not listen and allow Saul to be their first king.
This case can be seen in The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis as the opposition between male and female characters. The writer finds that Lewis implies the patriarchal binary thought through the characters of Aslan and The White Witch. The writer presents them as Good and Evil. All of good things can be seen in Aslan characteristics and he has appearance as a large and talking lion, he also has shining golden fur and magical power. In the other hand, The White Witch represents the “Evil”.
