    There is always one aspect of life that is essential in a person. It is established in childhood; imagination. Children have the privilege of being young enough for a certain amount of time to not let any responsibilities hinder them from learning and experiencing the world in new ways.

    Revisiting Childhood in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe When I was young, it was hard to understand the bigger picture. I knew not what I did; I only acted.

    Another important aspect of Post Colonial theory is to bring marginalized characters into focus and detract from the blatant “othering” found in their Eurocentric culture. Many Narnians are forced to undergo service for the White Witch in order to survive the long winters, and some even relish in the privileges they receive from the Queen. Thus, imperialism is as much a militarily enforced occupation as much as it is a controlled social and cultural occupation (Said, 1113). Those under the control
