The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe: An Analysis
The main characters in this story are Peter, Susan, Edmund, and
Lucy. During a war in London they were sent to a professor’s house outside
London. Lucy, while exploring with her brothers and sister, found a secret
passage through the wardrobe to Naria,a secret world. In Naria there are other
characters. One of them is the White Witch,also known as the Queen of Naria,
who was like a tyrant. If anyone disobeyed her she turned them to stone.
Another character Aslan, a lion, saved Naria from the rule of the White Witch.
Most of this story takes place in Naria.
The main conflict is how Naria can live under the rule of the
White Witch. The Beavers set out to take Peter, Susan, and Lucy (not Edmund
because he went to the witch ) to the four thrones so they ( four children
united ) can rule over Naria and destroy the witch. The Beavers and the three
children were walking in the snow because there it was always winter. Although
it was always winter Christmas never arrived. After they awoke the next day
they saw Father Christmas who gave them gifts.Mrs. Beaver received a new
sewing machine. Mr. Beaver’s dam was fixed and finished. Peter was given a
shield and sword. Susan received a bow, arrows, and a horn. Lucy’s gift was a
bottle of healing juice and a dagger. that was the climax of the book because
the spell of the White Witch was fading. Then they met up with Aslan and he
freed all the stone figures and made them his army. The resolution of the book
is when Aslan’s army and the witches army confront and Aslan’s army wins.
Peter kills the witch at the end of the battle.
The impression I got from this book is that Naria is a land of
surprises and I’m excited that this years assignment will allow me to read more
of ” The Chronicles of Naria ” . I liked this book because of the surprising
events like when Aslan died then came back to life. I would recommend this book
to someone more or less at my reading level because I found this book neither
difficult nor easy and simple.
