Into the Wardrobe: C. S. Lewis and the Narnia Chronicles [Hardcover]
by David C. Downing

In this engaging and insightful book, C. S. Lewis expert David C. Downing invites readers to join his vivid exploration of the "Chronicles of Narnia", offering a detailed look at the enchanting stories themselves and also focusing on the extraordinary intellect and imagination of the man behind the Wardrobe.

Downing presents each Narnia book as its own little wardrobe: each tale is an opportunity to discover a visionary world of bustling vitality, sparkling beauty, and spiritual clarity. And Downing’s examination of C. S. Lewis’s personal life shows how the content of these classic children’s books reflects Lewis’s love of wonder and story, his affection for animals and homespun things, his shrewd observations about human nature, along with his vast reading, robust humor, theological speculations, medieval scholarship, and arcane linguistic jokes.

A fun glossary of odd and invented words will allow readers to speak with Narnian flair, regaling friends and family with unusual words like cantrips, poltoonery, hastilude, and skirling.

A masterful work that will appeal to both new and seasoned fans of Narnia, Into the Wardrobe offers a journey beyond Narnia’s deceptively simple surface and into its richly textured and unexpected depths.

Jossey-Bass (August 2005). Hardcover. 256 pages.
