Did you know that the term Narnia is originally a Latin word which is taken from the archaic Italian town “Narni”? The original idea of Narnia was once a thought by Lewis when he was a child, where he imagined a Faun with an umbrella, holding parcels in a snow white forest which remained in Lewis’s mind since he was just 16, then he decided to make this come true when he was around 40. Although it took Lewis over 8 years to finalise the series, he actually spent only 3 months writing the first book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Clive Staples Lewis, born in 1898 was very knowledgeable and perhaps even one of the greatest authors of the 20th century. He taught at Oxford University in English Literature then he was transferred over to Cambridge University where he held the responsibility of Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature. Lewis developed and worked on over 30 books and covered a wide range of topics which reached many people, and to date year by year there are many readers who continue to enjoy his work. Millions of readers today enjoy his books and to name a few big titles like: Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, as well as the hugely popular books in the modern age in The Chronicles of Narnia, which has successfully sold more than 100 million copies around the globe and made into 3 motion pictures which entertained many children and adults around the world.
In addition to The Chronicles of Narnia, Lewis was also interested in many other genres and he actually wrote over 60 books which involved: poetry, theology, educational philosophy, science-fiction, retold myths, autobiography, literary criticism. Lewis’s books of The Chronicles of Narnia helped his readers in thinking about morality too, and encouraged readers how to be good people. He has realised the dullness of many academic books, Lewis told stories which would teach people about virtue and morality in a fantastic mystical tale. Using narration and his wonderful thinking and ideas, he achieved success in guiding people on how to display goodness, nobility, divinity and how these can be shown in real life. Narnia is also popular among adult readers for its deeper complex ideas and lessons when you read carefully and think about each scenario and characters in a deeper manner.
