This Irish-born Oxford and Cambridge academic wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.
His most distinguished and popular writings include his seven-part fantasy series for children The Chronicles of Narnia ; the science fiction Space Trilogy ; the apologetical The Problem of Pain , The Screwtape Letters , Miracles , Mere Christianity , and The Four Loves ; and the autobiographical Surprised by Joy and A Grief Observed Countless Christian writers, pastors, thinkers and artists have credited C S Lewis as a key influence on their faith journey, and his Narnia books have become classics of children's literature.
Lewis became known as 'Jack' as a young child after he adopted the name of his pet dog who was killed by a car.
"the magician's nephew"
His mother Flora was the daughter of an Anglican priest, and died when Lewis was just ten. Lewis had one brother, Warren - known affectionately as Warnie - who was three years his senior. The two would remain close friends and creative collaborators throughout Lewis' life. When children, they shared a fascination with humanised animal characters like Beatrix Potter's, and wrote and illustrated stories of an imaginary world they called 'Boxen', run entirely by such fanciful beings.
Lewis' childhood home was full of books, and he became a keen and intrepid reader at an early age. Until his mother's death, Lewis was educated by private tutors, then moved on to a series of boarding schools in both Ireland and England. It was during his time at the last of these, aged 15, that Lewis gave up his childhood Christian faith and became an atheist.
It was also at this time that he developed an intense love for ancient Norse legends and the natural world - an aesthetic complex which he called 'Northernness' and associated with the mysterious inner longing of 'joy'. Under the influence of his tutor William Kirkpatrick, Lewis would go on to a deep involvement with ancient Greek literature.
Lewis' academic acumen won him a scholarship at Oxford in , but shortly afterward his studies were interrupted by military service in World War I. Lewis was commissioned as a lieutenant in a light infantry regiment and sent to the Western Front in France, where he experienced the horrors of trench warfare, and was wounded by what would now be called 'friendly fire'.
After the war, Lewis resumed his studies at Oxford, and in the years between and received firsts in Greek and Latin literature, philosophy, and English.
The Magician's Nephew
By he was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford - a position he would hold for nearly three decades. In , Lewis transferred to Cambridge, where he had been awarded professorship in the new chair of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature. In the late s, Lewis' circle of literary friends at Oxford coalesced into a discussion group known as The Inklings, which would meet regularly over about two decades.
Members shared an enthusiasm for narrative tales, myths, legends - particularly Norse, Celtic, folkloric and mediaeval material - and fantasy fiction. They would read aloud their own works-in-progress and receive suggestions and criticism from their fellows.
In the garden Digory finds a sign reading: Come in by the gold gates or not at all Take of my fruit for others or forbear For those who steal or those who climb my wall Shall find their heart's desire and find despair Digory picks one of the apples for his mission, but has to resist temptation to eat one for himself after he smells the apples.
As he prepares to leave he is shocked to see the witch Jadis.
She has eaten one of the magic apples, thereby becoming immortal, but her face is now "deadly white"; Digory begins to understand what the last line in the sign means. She tempts Digory to either eat an apple himself and join her in immortality, or steal one back to Earth to heal his dying mother.
Digory resists temptation, knowing that his mother would never condone theft. The Witch then suggests he leave Polly behind, not knowing Polly can get away by her own ring.
At this, Digory sees through the Witch's ploy. Foiled, the Witch departs for the North.

Digory returns to Narnia with an apple, which is planted in Narnian soil. A new tree springs up, which Aslan says will repel the Witch for centuries to come. Aslan informs Digory that a stolen apple would have healed his mother, but at a terrible price: anyone who steals the apples gets their heart's desire, but it comes in a form that makes it unlikeable. In the case of the Witch, she now has her heart's desire for immortality, but it only means eternal misery because of her evil heart.
Moreover, the magic apples are now a horror to her, which is why the tree repels her. With Aslan's permission, Digory then takes an apple from the new tree to heal his mother. Aslan promises the apple will now bring joy. Digory's apple restores his dying mother to health, and he and Polly remain lifelong friends. Uncle Andrew reforms and gives up magic but he still enjoys bragging about his adventures with the Witch on their tour of London.
Digory plants the apple's core, together with Uncle Andrew's magic rings, in the back yard of his aunt's home in London. Years later the tree that grows from it blows down in a storm. Digory has its wood made into a wardrobe , setting up the events in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Principal characters Digory Kirke : The boy who becomes the Professor Kirke who appears in other books of the series. Polly Plummer : Digory's friend, who lives next door. Mrs Kirke: Digory's mother. Andrew Ketterley : Digory's uncle, a minor magician. Letitia Ketterley: Uncle Andrew's sister. King Frank : A cabby who is the husband of Helen, and the first king of Narnia, and forefather of the kings of Archenland.
Fledge :Frank's horse, who brings Polly and Digory to see Aslan. However, when Roger Lancelyn Green asked him how a lamp post came to be standing in the midst of Narnian woodland, Lewis was intrigued enough by the question to attempt to find an answer by writing The Magician's Nephew, which features a younger version of Professor Kirke from the first novel.
The other six Chronicles of Narnia were written between and , The Magician's Nephew was written over a six-year period between and This may be as a result of the autobiographical aspects of the novel, as it reflects a number of incidents and parallels very close to his own experiences.
He managed to finish close to three quarters of the novel, and then halted work once again after Roger Green, to whom Lewis showed all his writing at the time, suggested there was a structural problem in the story. Finally he returned to the novel in , after finishing The Last Battle in the spring of that year and completed early in The Lefay Fragment The original opening of the novel differs greatly from the published version, and was abandoned by Lewis.
Whenever his aunt is absent, Digory finds solace with the animals and trees, including a talking squirrel named Pattertwig. Polly enters the story as a girl next door who is unable to understand the speech of non-human creatures.
She wants to build a raft to explore a stream which leads to an underground world. Digory helps construct the raft, but ends up sawing a branch from a talking tree necessary to complete it, in order not to lose face with Polly. This causes him to lose his supernatural powers of speech. At this point the fragment ends.
Pattertwig does, however, appear as a Narnian creature in Prince Caspian , and Aunt Gertrude is the principal of the experimental school in The Silver Chair. Also in August Lewis had given instructions to Douglas Gresham to destroy all his unfinished or incomplete fragments of manuscript when his rooms at Magdalene College, Cambridge were being cleaned out, following his resignation from the college early in the month.
Both Digory and Lewis were children in the early s, both wanted a pony, and both were faced with the death of their mothers in childhood. Digory is separated from his father, who is in India, and misses him. He also had a brother in India.
Lewis was a voracious reader when a child, Digory is also, and both are better with books than with numbers. Digory and Polly struggle with sums when trying to work out how far they must travel along the attic space to explore an abandoned house, Lewis failed the maths entrance exam for Oxford University. Lewis remembered rainy summer days from his youth and Digory is faced with the same woe in the novel.
Additionally Digory becomes a professor when he grows up, who takes in evacuated children during World War II. Ketterley resembles Capron in his age, appearance and behaviour. It frequently makes use of humour; this perhaps reflects the sense of looking back at an earlier part of the century with affection, and Lewis as a middle-aged man recalling his childhood during those years.
There are a number of humorous references to life in the old days, in particular school life.
Humorous exchanges also take place between Narnian animals. Jadis' attempt to conquer London is portrayed as more comical than threatening, and further humour derives from the contrast between the evil empress and Edwardian London and its social mores, and her mistaking bumbling Andrew Ketterley for a powerful sorcerer. This recalls the style of Edith Nesbit's children's books. Most reprintings of the novels until the s also reflected the order of original publication.
In HarperCollins published the series in order of chronological of the events in the novels, which meant The Magician's Nephew was numbered as first in the series.
HarperCollins, which had previously published editions of the novels outside the United States, also acquired the rights to publish the novels in that country in and used this sequence in the uniform worldwide edition published in that year. He asked for Lewis to adjudicate between his views of the correct sequence of reading the novels — according to the sequence of events, with The Magician's Nephew being placed first, and that of his mother, who thought the order of publication was more appropriate.
Lewis wrote back, appearing to support the younger Krieg's views, although he did point out that the views of the author may not be the best guidance, and that perhaps it would not matter what order they were read in. An example is Lucy Pevensie's discovery of the wardrobe, Narnia and a mysterious lamp post in the woods in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe , which creates a sense of suspense about an unknown land she is discovering for the first time. This would be affected if the reader has already been introduced to Narnia in The Magician's Nephew and discovered the origins of Narnia, the wardrobe and the lamp post.
Indeed, the narrative of The Magician's Nephew appears to assume a reader has already read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and is now being shown its beginnings. He thought that the tales were not direct representations or allegory, but that they might evoke or remind readers of Biblical stories.
Jadis tempts Digory to eat one of the forbidden apples in the garden, as the serpent tempts Eve into eating a forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. Unlike Eve however, Digory rejects Jadis's offer. It is noteworthy that also Lewis's Perelandra features a re-enactment of the same Biblical story, which also in that book ends with the tempter foiled and the fall avoided. While the creation of Narnia closely echoes the creation of the Earth in the Book of Genesis, there are a number of important differences.
In Narnia the fall takes place before the creation. Human beings are not created in Narnia by Aslan, they are brought into Narnia from our own world.
Unlike Genesis, where souls are given only to human beings, animals and half-human half-animal creatures such as Fauns and Satyrs and even trees and watercourses are given souls and the power of rational thought and speech. This appears to suggest Lewis combined his Christian worldview with his fondness for nature, myth and fairy tales.
Jadis's references to "reasons of State", and her claim to own the people of Charn and to be beyond morality, represent the eclipse of the medieval Christian belief in natural law by the political concept of sovereignty, as embodied first in royal absolutism and then in modern dictatorships.
He specifically does so in The Magician's Nephew when a 'long warm breath' gives life to Narnia. Lewis used the symbol of the breath to represent the Holy Spirit also known as the Holy Ghost. Both 'spirit' and 'ghost' are translations of the word for breath in Hebrew and Greek.Lewis became known as 'Jack' as a young child after he adopted the name of his pet dog who was killed by a car.
Who is she like? And that's fine with me.

Page Build Time: They find a bell with a hammer, an inscription inviting the finder to strike the bell. I cannot wait to read them. The particulars of the plot for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe are well known to me, as I have seen the movie adaptation numerous times, and it made reading this so special and exciting as facets from the second book were incorporated into the first. The Magician's Nephew also has good morals Despite the fact that The Magicians Nephew is the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia, strangely, it is frequently overlooked.
