In what sense–or senses– is C.S Lewis’ “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” Christian literature. That is, how would you classify the text’s incorporation of Christianity. Feel free to use technical classifications: for example, perhaps you think the text is best understood as being didactic; or as paraenetic; (a fancy philosophy term for a certain kind of moral exhortation) or again as protreptic; but you don’t have to. Just be clear as you can in identifying the specific channel through which the text’s Christianity manifests. Second, to what end is the text Christian? Does its Christian imagination have an identifiable purpose, argument, or message, either explicit or implicit? If so, what is it, and how does the author convey that
message? Conclude by reflecting on your personal reaction to the text. What did you learn
from the text, besides any specific message or argument? In what other ways did it affect you?
