Digory and Polly were good friends. They both lived in England for all of
their lives. One day they were playing when Polly wanted to show Digory her
secret place. It was up in her attic. She hid many things there. She hid
fruits and snacks to eat and a lot of other stuff to.
Digory noticed a door across the attic. Back then the houses were
connected together and they thought that if they would cross the rafters and
open the door they could sneak into a house and the next and so on. The reason
for all of this was that one of the houses down a ways was abandon.
So they started off, one rafter at a time. They had to remain extremely
silent for if someone would here them they would think it was a robber. They
opened the door and began the next house. After a while they came to the one
that they thought was abandoned, but after they opened the door and saw all the
books they knew that they were wrong.
They were in the forbidden study. That was uncle Andrews private room.
It seemed as if no one was in the room, so they decided to look around. Polly
noticed that there were several different types of rings on the table.
Suddenly Digory saw someone stand up from the chair, it was uncle Andrew.
He told Polly not to touch the rings, but it was to late. She disappeared into
the air. Digory was confused. He wondered what the rings did. Did Polly just
disappear or did she go to some distant land? Uncle Andrew explained how that
one ring would take you to this land and that the other one would bring you back.
Uncle Andrew was not sure that it worked yet because the only things that
entered before were guinea pigs.
Digory put two rings in each pocket with gloves(so he would not
disappear). Two were for Polly and two for him. He put the disappear ring and
felt funny as he went speedy to the new land. It felt as if he was swimming.
He swam upward to see where the water went. He came out of the water and saw a
beautiful forest. He noticed guinea pigs and far away a girl leaning against a

...about the wonders of the apple. She told him that one bite would let you
live forever. Digory was not so sure. He took off running toward Polly and
Fledge. He shouted get ready to leave. Just before Digory got on the witch
said do not let the lion have immortal life when you can. At that time Digory
was not sure what he was doing was right.
They took off to Narnia which is the land of where the lion lives. The
lion told them to throw it towards the mud. Digory did and it grew into a
beautiful tree. The lion told him how the tree would protect them from the
witch. Digory mentioned that she ate an apple. Then the lion thought for a
while and said she will spend the rest of her days practicing her magic and will
leave us alone.
Digory, Polly, and Uncle Andrew went home. Digory still had one apple left
from the tree that he planted in Narnia and he gave it to his poor old mom. The
next day Digory heard the doctor saying that it was a miracle. Digory planted
the core in the back yard. It grew very big, but the apples did not have any
powers at all. When Digory was older and the tree was knocked down he had it
made into a table or something that had magical powers.

- C.S. Lewis is the author of the popular book series: The Chronicles of Narnia. In The Chronicles of Narnia, Lewis utilizes the understandings of Augustine as well as his own understandings of myths to help better explain concepts of Christianity for younger generations. Despite C.S. Lewis’s claims, The Chronicles of Narnia qualifies as an allegory due to the way the characters and events in the book series are portrayed similar to those in biblical text.

- Role of Symbolism in C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia It has always been amazing to realize how well the literature I read as a child has stayed with me through the years. It takes an exceptional writer to compose a narrative that maintains a storyline on the same level of a child's understanding; it takes everything short of a miracle to keep a child's interest. However, that undertaking has been accomplished by many skilled authors, and continues to be an area of growth in the literary world.... [tags: Chronicles of Narnia Essays]
