I just discovered a video I have of a BBC dramatization of the “Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” story, made perhaps 15 years ago. I shall try to remember to bring the video next time, in case anyone wants to see it. It is in English, of course, and with no subtitles; but of course you don’t need the subtitles, do you!
While eating some Christmas pudding, also called plum pudding, we summarized and discussed chapters 11-13 of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Our next session will be the last Wednesday in May, May 26th. We will summarize and discuss the last chapters of the book.
In addition, I plan to discuss these questions:
1) Why do we read?
2) Lewis said the Narnian stories are fairy tales. How is a fairy tale different from other kinds of fiction?
3) Lewis wrote that he chose to write the Narnian stories as fairy-tales because the fairy-tale was the best way to express what he wanted to say. What did he want to say?
