A Summary

Through my research into C.S. Lewis' life and his "Chronicles of Narnia", I feel that personally I have learnt a lot. I discovered a number of very useful web sites on the subject (to which links can be found on my page "Useful Links"), and through them  found that there is a lot more to "The Chronicles" than may at first meet the eye. They contain a much deeper Christian message behind the enjoyable children's stories that many know and love. I also became more aware about the life of one of the most successful writers of the twentieth century and began to see how his personal experiences and beliefs had a profound effect on his literary career.

In conclusion, I have very much enjoyed my research and have endeavoured, in the creation of my web site, to gather together in one place some of what I consider to be the best and most useful information that I have found on the internet. I hope that you will find it as interesting and productive as I have!

A Thank You

I would just like to say a big "thank you" to all of those who have let me edit and republish their work or create a link to their web site for the purposes of my research. I hope that the results meet with your approval.
