The theme of good vs evil is thoroughly represented in the story,
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
through the White Witch, Aslan, and the Pevensies (Edmund).

The novel itself could not function without this certain theme. It is the main backbone of the story and nothing in the novel would make sense without it.
The White Witch
In the novel, the White Witch is the main antagonist. She plots, and carries out Aslan's death, she casts a spell on Narnia its self so it is always winter, and she also tricks Edmund into believing that she is truly good, which eventually leads to her ultimate downfall when Aslan is resurrected.
Pevensies (Edmund)
In the novel, the Pevensies all play a different, but important role in the story. Near the beginning of the novel, all the children seem to be neutral, as to what side they are on (good or evil). But a little bit later on, Lucy, Peter and Susan stay with Mr. beaver, while Edmund gets distracted by the White Witch and stays with her for a while because of her turkish delight. Near the end of the novel, Edmund realizes his mistake, and quickly joins forces with Aslan and the children.

Quote from Novel
Quote from Novel
"At the name of Aslan each one of the children felt something jump in its inside. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt suddenly brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delicious smell or some delightful strain of music had just floated by her. And Lucy got the feeling you have when you wake up in the morning and realize that it is the beginning of the holidays or the beginning of summer." (Lewis 136) This quote is being narrated, and is said when the children hear Aslan's name for the first time. The children have mixed reactions about his name, which show Aslan's true prestige
Quote from Novel
"Don't you understand? said Mr. Beaver. "He's gone to
, to the White Witch. He has betrayed us all." (Lewis 164) This quote is being said by Mr. Beaver, when they finally discover that Edmund has gone missing. This quote is telling the reader that Edmund has now gone to the evil side (White Witch) and that he can no longer be trusted because he is now a traitor.
All throughout the novel, the theme of good vs evil is present in almost every event taking place. This theme is also the foundation of the story, and it wouldn't be able to progress without it. The theme of good vs evil is thoroughly represented in the story,
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
through the White Witch, Aslan, and the Pevensies (Edmund).
"She is a perfectly terrible person," said Lucy. "She calls herself the Queen of Narnia though she has no right to be queen at all, and all the Fauns and Dryands and Naiads and Dwarfs and Animals—at least all the good ones—simply hate her. And she can turn people into stone and do all kinds of horrible things. And she has made a magic so that it is always winter in Narnia—always winter, but it never gets to Christmas. And she drives about on a sledge, drawn by reindeer, with her wand in her hand and a crown on her head." (Lewis 83-84) This quote is being said by Lucy, when Edmund first encounters Narnia. Lucy explains to Edmund that the witch is simply a terrible person. This quote explains how evil the witch is, and that she should not be trusted.
Secondary Source Quote
"Part of what makes the Witch so creepily evil is that she's not what she seems. In the real world, we're used to appearances being deceptive. But in Narnia, the way things look is the way they really are, and the outside usually expresses the true nature of things. Aslan looks good and noble and wise because he is. It's not hard to guess that creatures like centaurs and dryads are always good. And it's pretty darn obvious that other creatures, like hags and wolves, are bad." (Shmoop Editorial Team) This quote goes into more detail of explaining how evil the Witch is, and how she fills the classic evil character look.

Secondary Source Quote
"Aslan is the great lion who rules Narnia. He is described as the King of Narnia, the King of Beasts, the Lord of the Wood, and the son of the great Emperor-Beyond-the-Sea. Aslan is the embodiment of all that is Good and Just and Right and Perfect and all the snazzy things which are easy for characters to stand up for in movies, but tough for people to stand up for in real life." (Shmoop Editorial Team) This quote further explains Alsan's true identity within the novel. It really shows who Aslan is meant to be, and who people actually look up to.
Secondary Source Quote
"Edmund is spiteful and mean, and likes to tease his sister, Lucy. His greed for the enchanted Turkish Delight leads him to act as a traitor against his siblings. Edmund joins forces with the White Witch, but eventually sees the error of his ways and returns to the good side." (SparkNotes Editors) This quote explains Edmund's personality, and his role within the novel. It also highlights his certain impact on the novel,and what his final decision is at the end.
