About Cronicles Of Narnia
The Chronicles of Narnia takes place in the world of Narnia. Narnia by itself encompasses many worlds, including the human world. A passage across these several worlds is said to be possible, but is very rare. Those shuttling across the various worlds in Narnia, do so in various fashions. These visitors, however, find the passage of time extremely unpredictable, while they are away. The population of Narnia resembles and would remind one of Roman and Norse mythology and Irish and British fairy tales. The Chronicles of Narnia comprises of a series of seven fantasy novels. These include 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe', 'Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia', 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader', 'The Silver Chair', 'The Horse and His Boy', 'The Magician's Nephew', and 'The Last Battle'. All these books were published between 1950 and 1956. It is found that the Chronicles of Narnia has several Christian influences, which the author, C.S. Lewis, brushes aside these claims as suppositional. He has however incorporated satyrs, fauns, centaurs, dwarves, and werewolves and states the Pagan influence on the Chronicles of Narnia. C.S. Lewis had written the Chronicles of Narnia, largely based on his own life, especially his early childhood days. Lewis's family had moved to a big house that had huge hallways and empty rooms. Lewis was just seven then; and he, along with his brother used to create make believe worlds of their own. Lewis had also lost his mother at a young age and had spent a lot of time in English boarding schools. He has incorporated most of his experiences in his work. The novels have also been adapted into TV miniseries, radio, stage, cinema and music. The most famous adaptation however, is the 2005 Oscar winning film, 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. The second installment in this series of films is set to release in 2008.
