20/F I'm a university student, majoring in Classics (Greek and Roman Studies) in Canada. I love art and music and books. And I'd like to think I'm pretty friendly, despite my sarcastic sense of humour.
When I think of it from a mythic point-of-view, it makes sense to have repetitions of themes: witches that are beautiful but ugly on the inside, enticing people with nice-sounding lies, etc. From the author's point of view, I'd go with ambiguity, too. As I reader I want to fill in the gaps and tend to make connections where there aren't any. redface
Have you read any of Lewis's other fiction or work? Narnia is the gateway to some fantastic fantasy and sci-fi of his!
What kind of relationship do you think she had to Jadis, the White Witch?
I remember coming to the conclusion that Lewis didn't *intend* them to be the same character, though I think that would have been kind of neat.
Baaahh,of course! I knew I knew the name from somewhere. I haven't read The Silver Chair in probably ten years. She becomes a snake, doesn't she? I do remember Puddleglum, though, he's impossible to misplace!
