  • Symbolism In Lewis's The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe

    The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, Lewis utilizes a myriad of components, or symbols, to create an allegory of Christianity.

This is explained in chapter eight, “wrong will be right when Aslan comes in sight…” (Lewis 74). As Christ is the center of Christianity, Aslan is implied as the center of Narnia. In chapter fourteen, Aslan offers to sacrifice himself on the stone table in the place of Edmund, even though Aslan had done nothing wrong to deserve this punishment.…
