347 pp, 9 3/8" H. B&w illustrations. "In 'Planet Narnia' (Michael Ward) demonstrates that medieval cosmology, a subject that fascinated Lewis throughout his life, provides the imaginative key to the seven (Narnia) novels. Drawing on the whole range of Lewis's writings (including previously unpublished drafts of the Chronicles), Ward reveals how the Narnia stories were designed to express the characteristics of the seven medieval planets - Jupiter, Mars, Sol, Luna, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn - planets which Lewis described as 'spiritual symbols of permanent value' and 'especially worthwhile in our own generation'. Using these seven symbols, Lewis secretly constructed the Chronicles so that in each book the plot-line, the ornamental details, and, most important, the portrayal of the Christ-figure of Aslan, all serve to communicate the governing planetary personality. The cosmological theme of each Chronicle is what Lewis called 'the kappa element in romance', the atmospheric essence of a story, everywhere present but nowhere explicit. The reader inhabits this atmosphere and thus imaginatively gains 'connaitre' knowlege of the spiritual character which the tale was created to embody. (This) is a ground-breaking study that will provoke a major revaluation not only of the Chronicles but of Lewis's whole literary and theological outlook. Ward uncovers a much subtler writer and thinker than has previously been recognized, one whose central interests were hiddenness, immanence, and knowledge by acquaintance." One tiny edge scuff, wrinkle at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing, tiny dent on rear hinge.
