ANALYSIS OF THE LITERARY ELEMENTSINTHE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA : THE MAGICIAN’S NEPHEWBY C.S. LEWIS | Date of Submission : | 6 September 2011 |
Point of View
In The Magician's Nephew, Lewis writes in a third person omniscient perspective or third person limited omniscient. The narrator is not a part of the story, although he does address the reader at several points in the story. This narrator is privy to the thoughts and feelings of Digory and Polly, in particular. The reader is able to especially see the sadness, hope, and temptations of Digory. By knowing Digory's thoughts, one can recognize the motivations behind his actions, and also how he feels about the events in Narnia.
In this story, Digory and Polly are the main characters.

After Digory wakes Queen Jadis, the buildings further crumble around them. Polly and Digory dislike Charn.
As we know, the condition of Charn is after destruction. The destruction caused by Jadis when she said the Deplorable Word.(chapter 4, page 45-75)
The first time they (Digory, Polly, Jadis, and Uncle Andrew)enters, Narnia is still dark and empty. When they hear Aslan’s song, they see the stars appear, plants growing, animal sprung from the soil, and a very young sun. Digory and Polly felt a sense of peace, much different feeling when they are in Charn. In this scene, Aslan is creating Narnia. (chapter 8, page 113-138)
The Central idea of this story (the message)is Greed Brings Disaster. Well, I guess it's not good to be greedy and do something you know is wrong. Such as the witch eating the special fruit and she became unhappy for the rest of her life. (chapter 13, page 191-195) And Digory's uncle who risked two childrens' lives just to know what was in other worlds (chapter 2). He got an evil witch to deal with for that. Another might be to not be too curious. It's not always bad to discover new things, but in Digory's case with the magic bell, he should have left well enough alone (chapter 4, page 57-59). He brought the evil witch to both his world and Narnia. You should also obey God (represented by Aslan in Narnia) because in the end it will work out for the better.
