The Hero Journey- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Transcript of The Hero Journey- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Other supernatural helpers include Mr. and Mrs. Beaver and Father Christmas The Belly of the Whale At this point, Susan and Peter are accepting that they are in Narnia now. This is where the children and the beavers set off to rescue Narnia from the White Witch. This is also where Edmund leaves the group. The Road of Trials Peter, Susan, and Lucy travel across Narnia with the beavers, trying to escape the wolves and the Witch herself in order to find Aslans camp. Atonement With the Father This is where the witch pulls out the rulebook and condemns Edmund to die because of his betrayals. Edmund is supposed to atone for his sins, but Aslan takes his place. While Edmund's old, sinful self is symbolically killed consequently giving him a new self, Aslan's physical body is killed. Apotheosis Aslan is resurrected. The Ultimate Boon The White Witch is dead, the curse is broken, and the Pevensies are crowned Kings and Queens of Narnia. Analysis The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe mostly follows the hero-quest path. Even though the steps may be split up among the four children, the group still completes the actions up until the end where they deviate from the system.
They also follow some of the other archetypes of literature including woman as a temptress (although she is white, not black), magic weapons, death and rebirth/winter vs. spring, and scapegoats. The Crossing of the Return Threshold When the four (now fully grown) children accidentally return from Narnia through the wardrobe. They need to return to their old lives as children in England but keep their memories of Narnia Master of the Two Worlds Eventually, the children will all return to Narnia and have new adventures. Edmund and Lucy will return twice, so they must adjust to being in both worlds multiple times.
