Mythology and Moral in C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Summary, in English
After investigating these interpretations and analysing the text, my conclusion is that C.S. Lewis tried to tell us more than just an ordinary fairy-tale, since many of the characters and events can be interpreted in several different ways. My interpretations are one way of looking at the novel and there are of course many other ways of interpreting it. I have chosen to look closer at and concentrate on only a few characters and events where I think C.S. Lewis's opinions and moral are expressed. I have investigated what the characters could stand for and from which mythology they are taken. In two cases I will show the different use of mythology in the British and the American edition and how that affects the characters. In my analysis of the events I have tried to interpret what moral issues C.S. Lewis is expressing.
