Are you travelling to Narnia?

No matter if this is your first visit to C. S. Lewis' wonderful fantasy world or if you've been there many times, you'll want to bring along this handy companion to the landscape and inhabitants of Narnia, including an A-to-Z guide to characters, places, objects and events. From Narnia expert Colin Duriez you'll learn

more about the mind behind Narnia

how Narnia relates to other imaginative worlds and children's literature

about the history within the stories of Narnia

how Narnia fits into Lewis's other work

Duriez also takes up some the sticky questions that you may be left wondering about, such as the destiny of Susan. His book will help you dig deeper into the series and its implications for understanding the Christian life.

-Publisher

"Since the books are now classics and since their creator has become one of the most pondered-over, written-about, analyzed and deconstructed authors of the twentieth century, the more curious reader will find it helpful and instructive to have a reliable guide on hand when exploring the lands that lie "between the lamp-post and the great castle of Cair Paravel on the eastern sea."One could not wish for a better traveling companion than a preeminent commentator such as Colin Duriez, who combines a richly mined knowledge--sharply focused by wisdom and understanding--of both the world and the worlds of C. S. Lewis, and shares it with a passionate but clear-sighted enthusiasm that is as effortless as it is authoritative."So before you step into that wardrobe (and remember, 'as every sensible person does, that you should never, never shut yourself in a wardrobe'), pop A Field Guide to Narnia in your pocket and you will undoubtedly see that land with new eyes, perhaps even respond to it with a new heart."
