The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Transcript of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe ~Some journeys take us far from home,
Some adventures lead us to our destiny.~ Literary Elements More literary elements... Paradox Irony Foreshadowing Irony Motif Hyperbole Mood Setting (plot continued...) Plot Setting & Plot It takes place during World War II.
Starts off in the Pevensies' house during a bombing, but then it's in a mansion in the English countryside and finally Narnia. In the midst of World War II, Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter Pevensie must leave their home with their mother because it's become too dangerous there. They move in with Professor Kirke and his housekeeper Mrs. Macready in a mansion. One day, when playing hide-and-seek, the youngest child, Lucy, hides in a wardrobe and finds herself in the magical land of Narnia, with talking creatures, fauns, centaurs and dwarfs. When she returns home after what she thought was hours, she realizes that no time had passed at all. When Lucy tries to explain where she's been, her siblings don't believe her.
Later, they all find themselves in Narnia, which is completely real, and caught up in a war they've never heard about because of a prophecy that they are suddenly a part of.
Now, they must decide whether to help themselves, or an entire hidden nation. An example of mood is when Lucy enters Narnia for the first time. She hears footsteps in the snow and ominous music plays to support an impression of danger and a threatening mood. A prophecy being fulfilled. In this case it's about two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve (in other words, humans) coming to Narnia to defeat the White Witch. "It has whole rooms simply stuffed with Turkish delight."
-Jadis, the White Witch / "Queen of Narnia"
She says this when she's trying to convince Ed to bring his siblings. When all four kids finally enter Narnia, it's not because they really believe in it, but because they're trying to hide so they don't get in trouble for breaking a window. Peter: "He says he knows the faun."
Susan: "He's a beaver, he shouldn't be saying anything!" They thought the White Witch was chasing them, but it was actually Santa coming to give them weapons to help fight her. Jadis and Aslan make a bargain, and there is a sense of evil along with an unsettling mood. Symbolism When the wardrobe doesn't lead to Narnia just after Lucy was there, this symbolizes her siblings' lack of belief in Narnia and their distrust in Lucy. Foreshadowing When Lucy is with Mr. Tumnus, the faun, his magical music and then his reaction to the signs they gave serve as an omen that Lucy's presence is significant and special, so Tumnus believes he is evil and makes Lucy leave. Characters Protagonist: mostly Lucy, maybe Aslan
Antagonist: mostly the White Witch, maybe Edmund
Point of View: Third Person limited
Comic relief "Well I ain't gonna smell it, if that's what you want."
Just after the kids found out that Mr. Tumnus had gotten thrown into jail for being with Lucy, the feeling is tense and they hear mysterious footsteps which turn out to be Beaver. Peter calls to him like a dog, holding out his hand, and this was Beaver's reaction, which eased the tension. Foreshadowing Peter: "I'm gonna kill him."
Beaver: "You may not have to." Euphemism "He tells us to hurry up one more time, I'll turn him into a big fluffy hat."
-Peter Symbolism The snow begins to melt, which means that winter is ending, so it shows that the White Witch's powers are weakening and her reign is coming to an end. Mood Right before the battle begins, there's the sound of heartbeats and slow-motion which make it feel more intense. Deus ex Machina Everyone thought Aslan was dead because Jadis killed him, but then he magically came back to life. Theme One obvious theme is that good always wins over evil.
Another, however, is that belief and determination are the foundation for success. I drew this conclusion because Lucy believed in Narnia all along and her determination to save Tumnus, in the long run, actually saved Narnia too. The end!
