Pocket Guide to Narnia May 2, 2008
I have to say that sometimes I wonder about the authors who devote their lives to writing books about other people's fantasy novels-why not write your own epic? That aside, if you want to read a short biography of any of C S Lewis' diverse Narnian characters or creatures, or read up on Lewis' view of a certain spiritual, ethical, or literary ideal, this little book is the one to turn to.
Every facet of Lewis' fantasy world, from Aslan and the Pevensies themselves all the way down to mundanely obscure characters mentioned only once are described in concise yet almost scholarly detail in this title. Also profiled are the history and culture of Narnia and the surrounding kingdoms, the symbolisms used by Lewis, and maps, chronology, and black-and-white drawings of important charcters and events.
In short, this is an excellent pocket-sized guide to the products of the great imagination of C S Lewis.
