Rdinary children Peter Susan Edmund and Lucy Pevensie who have been evacuated to the English countryside from London in 1940 following the outbrea My greatest disappointment in 'The Screwtape Letters' was that Lewis was not able to demonstrate what made his good people good or his bad people bad The closest he got to defining goodness was that you could tell the good people from the vague aura of light that surrounded them and which even shone in their cat In this book the cat is much biggerAslan had no character he was just a big dull stand in Lewis often tells us how great he is but never demonstrates what it is that makes him great or impressive Sure he helps the kids but all that makes him is a plot facilitator He also has his big Jesus moment but that has the same problem as the original if he already knows that there will be no lasting negative outcome how much of a sacrifice is it reallyBut then Aslan isn't based on the original fig cursing church rejecting rebel Jesus but the whitewashed version Like Mickey Mouse Jesus started out as an oddball troublemaker with his fair share of personality but becoming the smiling face of a multinational organization bent on world domination takes a lot out of a mascot whether your magic castle is in California or RomeSuch a visible figure must become universally appealing universally friendly and loving lest some subset of followers feel left out And it's this 'Buddy Christ' tradition from which Aslan springs Devoid of insight wisdom or charm Aslan is just here to do all the things that our protagonists can't doThis also beggars the uestion why didn't Aslan just take care of all this stuff long before the kids arrived Why did all the animals and fairies and giants have to suffer the pain of an endless winter We're never given any good reason Aslan had to wait for the kids since in the end he does it all on his own anyways Sure Lewis mentions something vague about a prophecy but in fantasy prophecy is always a bandaid authors stick over their plot holes 'Uh the shlubby nobody is a hero because the prophecy says he is he defeats the ultimate evil because the prophecy says he can' The only thing the kids do is help run the battle but this is only necessary because Aslan is absent and he's only absent because the kids screwed up meaning the entire thing would have gone off without a hitch if they had never showed up in the first placeIn that regard I have to say Lewis did an excellent job boiling down Christianity into a fable and leaving the problem of evil completely intact Some readers suggest that Aslan lets the ueen take over to teach the kids a lesson but is it really worthwhile to let all the inhabitants of a kingdom suffer a century of misery just to teach a few kids about the true meaning of friendshipThe villain is just as poorly constructed and seems less concerned with defeating her enemies than with being pointlessly capricious She manages to trick one of the children but instead of taking advantage of this fact she immediately makes it clear that she tricked him I mean how did someone that incompetent take over in the first placeSelectively stupid characters are silly and convenient especially as villains because this completely undermines their role as foil It is impressive when characters overcome challenges but not when challenges simply crumble before them The children are lucky the ueen was of a fart stealing Old Nick than a Miltonian Satan otherwise they never would have stood a chanceIt is interesting to look at how many Christian authors have tried to reconcile their faith with complex fairy mythologies; not that Christianity doesn't have its own magical fairy tales but these other traditions are not exactly compatible Dante has Virgil lead him through hell the Buddha was made into a saint holidays were given new meanings even if they often kept old symbols and names and magical monsters were also given a place in the new faithIn the Middle Ages monks compiled 'Bestiaries' which described the roles of dragons unicorns and real animals in Christian synbolism; there were even century spanning debates about whether dog headed men were descended from Adam These books were rarely accurate but allowed Christian theology to adopt many stories and superstitions from earlier periods; for instance the connection between unicorns and virginity or the belief that pelicans fed their own blood to their young in imitation of communionSo Lewis' attempt to take myth and adapt it to a Christian cosmology is hardly new there is a long and storied tradition explored throughout the Chivalric period and recognizable today in books like The Once and Future King but Lewis doesn't do a very good job of reconciling these disparate mythologiesLike most Protestants Lewis' religion was a modern one not magical and mystical but reasonable and utilitarian He did not draw on the elaborate convoluted apocrypha of hallucinatory monsters and miracles that mystics obsess over instead he made a small sane reasonable magical world which rather defeats the point It is unfortunate that many of today's readers think of Lewis' writings as defining English fairy tales since his late additions to the genre are not original nor are they particularly well executed examplesMany authors have come to the genre with much imagination a deeper sense of wonder and a far reaching exploration of magic We have examples from Kipling Lewis Carroll Dunsany Eddison Morris and even modern updates by Gaiman and Clarke Lewis like Tolkien may be a well known example but both are rather short sighted and neither one achieves as much as the many talented authors who came beforeI'm not saying Lewis is bad merely that he is unremarkable and is hardly preeminent in fantasy or even in children's fantasy However I do think his fundamental message is a bad one even if he didn't realize he was creating it In all his worlds all his stories he takes the sorts of people he dislikes defines them as 'evil' then sets himself apart from them There is no attempt to comprehend or to come to mutual understanding I cannot respect a book which encourages people to vilify what they don't understand and to call isolation righteous If any worldview deserves the epithet of 'evil' it is the sort of willful prideful self indulgent ignorance Lewis displaysMy List of Suggested Fantasy Books Mission India: A Vision for Indian Youth to Brothers: A Novel the English countryside from London in 1940 following Skin Rules: Your 6-week Plan to Radiant Skin the outbrea My greatest disappointment in 'The Screwtape Letters' was Arranged Love that Lewis was not able The Orphan Diaries to demonstrate what made his good people good or his bad people bad The closest he got Servants of India to defining goodness was Table For Four that you could The Lucky Purse tell The Seed Of Truth the good people from Sex and Power the vague aura of light The Srinagar conspiracy that surrounded Akbar and Birbal them and which even shone in Areba Pareba: Kahani Sangraha (Hindi Edition) their cat In The House Of Kanooru this book Super Economies the cat is much biggerAslan had no character he was just a big dull stand in Lewis often The Hour before Dawn tells us how great he is but never demonstrates what it is The Very Expensive Coconut that makes him great or impressive Sure he helps The Clever Brothers the kids but all The Clever Brothers the kids but all Malegalali Madumagalu#AUTHOR#Kuvempu#END# that has Disappearing Daughters: The Tragedy of Female Foeticide the same problem as Sex and Power: Defining History, Shaping Societies the original if he already knows The Warrior'S Mirror - The Path to Peace that The Inspiring Journey of a Hero: Learnings from the Life of O.P.
