Transcript of The Hero's Journey – «The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,» by C. S. Lewis

Arthur Schott-Lopes The Hero's Journey: «The Lion, the Witch,
and the Wardrobe,» by C.S. Lewis Departure Bibliography Climax Return Lewis, Clive S. «The Lion, the Witch, and the
Wardrobe.» London: HarperCollins, 2009. iBooks edition. Introduction C.S. Lewis
«The Chronicles of Narnia»
Religion Call of Adventure "But instead of feeling the hard, smooth wood of the floor of the wardrobe, she felt something soft and powdery and extremely cold..." (19) Refusal to the Call "Oh, yes, Lucy and I have been playing – pretending that all her story about a country in the wardrobe is true. Just for fun, of course. There's nothing there really." (49) "You've been perfectly beastly to Lu ever since she started this nonsense about the wardrobe, and now you go playing games with her about it and setting her off again..." (50) Crossing the First Threshold "'Now that you mention it, it is cold,' said Peter, 'and hang it all, it's wet too. What's the matter with this place? I'm sitting on something wet. It's getting wetter every minute...'" (57) Helpers and Talismans "'Look! There's a robin, with such a red breast. It's the first bird I've seen here. I say! – I wonder can birds talk in Narnia? It almost looks as if it wanted to say something to us...'" (61) "'Quite right, quite right,' said the Beaver. 'Here is my token. With these words it held up to them a little white object. They all looked at it in surprise, till suddenly Lucy said, 'Oh, of course. It's my handkerchief – the one I gave to poor Mr. Tumnus.'" (68) Supernatural Aid "'We can't just go home, not after this. It is all on my account that the poor Faun has got into this trouble. He hid me from the Witch and showed me the way back […] We simply must try to rescue him.'" (61) Initiation and Transformation Road of Trials "'There are whole rooms full of Turkish Delight, and what's more, I have no children of my own. I want a nice boy whom I could bring up as a Prince and who would be King of Narnia when I am gone...'" (44) Tempter Challenge "'Oh, please, please, please, do hurry!' said the three children. And so at last they all got outside and Mr. Beaver locked the door ('It'll delay her a bit,' he said) and they set off, all carrying their loads over their shoulders." (94) Challenge "He rushed straight up to the monster and aimed a slash of his sword at its side. That stroke never reached the Wolf. Quick as lightning it turned round, its eyes flaming, and its mouth wide open in a howl of anger..." (116) Meeting with the God "But as for Aslan himself, the Beavers and the children didn't know what to do or say when they saw him. People who have not been in Narnia sometimes think that a thing cannot be good and terrible at the same time..." (113) Abyss Apotheosis Aslan The Pevensies Abyss, Apotheosis, Ultimate Boon, and Atonement Ultimate Boon Atonement "At last she drew near. She stood by Aslan's head. Her face was working and twitching with passion, but his looked up at the sky, still quiet, neither angry nor afraid, but a little sad..." (134) "'Yes!' said a great voice behind their backs. 'It is more magic.' They looked round. There, shining in the sunrise, larger than they had seen him before, shaking his mane (for it had apparently grown again) stood Aslan himself." (140) "The battle was all over a few minutes after their arrival. Most of the enemy had been killed in the first charge of Aslan and his companions; and when those who were still living saw that the Witch was dead they either gave themselves up or took to flight. The next thing that Lucy knew was that Peter and Aslan were shaking hands. It was strange to her to see Peter looking as he looked now – his face was so pale and stern and he seemed so much older." (154) "But next day was more solemn. For then, in the Great Hall of Cair Paravel [...], Aslan solemnly crowned them and led them to the four thrones amid deafening shouts of, 'Long Live King Peter! Long Live Queen Susan! Long Live King Edmund! Long Live Queen Lucy!'" (156) "These two Kings and two Queens governed Narnia well, and long and happy was their reign." (157) Refusal of the Return "So they lived in great joy and if ever they remembered their life in this world it was only as one remembers a dream." (158) Rescue from Without "[...]'And more,' said Queen Lucy, 'for it will not go out of my mind that if we pass this post and lantern either we shall find strange adventures or else some great change of our fortunes...'" (159) Magic Flight "They all remembered that the thing they had seen was called a lamp-post, and before they had gone twenty more [paces] they noticed that they were making their way not through branches but through coats." (160) Crossing of the Return Threshold "And next moment they all came tumbling out of a wardrobe door into the empty room, and they were no longer Kings and Queens in their hunting array but just Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy in their old clothes." (160) Master of Two Worlds "Yes, of course you'll get back to Narnia again someday. Once a King in Narnia, always a King in Narnia." (161) Freedom to Live "Indeed, don't try to get there at all. It'll happen when you're not looking for it." (161)
