More About the Author

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.


Product Description

Review

“The magic of C. S. Lewis’s parallel universe never fades.” The Times

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

'The Narnia Chronicles, first published in 1950, have been and remain some of the most enduring popular ever published.The best known, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, has been translated into 29 languages! The illustrations in this book have been coloured by the original artist, Pauline Baynes.'

"Stop it!" cried Eustace. "It's some silly trick you are playing! Ow!"

A great cold salt splash had broken right out of the frame and they were breathless from the smack of it, as well as being wet through.

Lucy and Edmund, stuck with their awful cousin Eustace, suddenly find themselves on board the Dawn Treader – and realise they have fallen into the magical land of Narnia. Reunited with old friends, the young King Caspian and Reepicheep the mouse, they gladly join the voyage to the World's End. Eustace, however, is not so happy…

Format: Paperback
The second volume of the Narnia Chronicles closed with the possibility of Lucy and Edmund -- though not their older siblings -- returning to Narnia. "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" makes good on that story, with the intrepid pair (plus a whiny cousin) returning on a strange sea voyage.

After the events of "Prince Caspian," Lucy and Edmund are sent off to stay with their obnoxious cousin Eustace. But when they admire a picture of a strange ship, suddenly all three kids are sucked in -- and land in a Narnian sea. On board the ship is King Caspian, now fully grown, who is determined to find a bunch of knights exiled by his murderous uncle, even if he has to go to the edge of the world (literally).

Lucy and Edmund are thrilled to be back in Narnia again, but Eustance proceeds to make trouble any way he can, complaining and causing trouble among the crew. But there are problems more horrifying than any of them can guess, from dragons to sinister "gold water" to a region filled with their worst nightmares.

"The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is one of Lewis's most original and tightly-written Narnian adventures. It's also a bit of a break from form. After two books of battles against evil tyrants, "Voyage" simply goes where no man/woman/mouse has gone before, and gives us a view of the Narnian world as more than one isolated little region.

And in some ways, it's also the darkest Chronicle. Lewis explores the theme of greed here -- greed for power, beauty, money and magic -- and has some scenes both chilling and majestic. But his archly humorous style peeks through in several places, whether it's pompous mouse Reepicheep or tea with a reclusive old wizard.

Edmund and Lucy are their usual plucky selves, albeit a bit more mature than before.

Format: Paperback
The third book in the Chronicles of Narnia (or the fifth if you're reading them in chronological order), is a rather unusual book within the context of the series, considering the good-against-evil theme that permeates the other six books in the series is largely absent here. Of course there are dangers and trials, as well as personal conflict that need to be resolved, but because there is no central villain nor any fundamental evil that needs to be defeated, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is more thoughtful, more carefully paced, more obviously spiritual and more episodic than any of the other books.

Likewise is the role that the children from our world play within the story. Sadly, Peter and Susan are too old to return to Narnia, and so the adventure belongs to Edmund and Lucy, as well as their horrible cousin Eustace Scrubb who are sucked through a painting in a spare bedroom into Narnia. However, unlike in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and "Prince Caspian", in which they had clear and important roles to play in the unfolding of Narnia's well-being, they are pulled aboard the ship the Dawn Treader in order to...well, just tag along really. Indeed, the children do not even set foot in Narnia throughout the course of the story - but crucially important words are spoken by Aslan at the conclusion of the tale that sheds a whole new light on the meaning behind the children's presence in Narnia: "In your world I have another name. This was the very reason you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little while, you may know me better there."

But I'm getting ahead of myself. After Lucy, Edmund and the odious Eustace are aboard the Dawn Treader they discover that their rescuer is Caspian, the boy crowned King at the conclusion of "Prince Caspian".

Format: Audio CD
So begins this story, in which Edmund and Lucy - the two youngest of the Pevensies, the only two still young enough to be allowed to enter Narnia - have had the bad luck to be sent for the summer to stay with Eustace's parents, and put up with Eustace's teasing about their "imaginary" country. Eustace's position at the beginning of this book is something like Edmund's at the beginning of THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE - he's bad company and untrustworthy, though his specific flaws are different from Edmund's.

Naturally, he is the fly in the ointment when Edmund and Lucy are drawn back into the Narnian world - he comes along too. As he's been raised reading all the wrong books and has a sad lack of imagination, he makes quite a fool of himself at first. Fortunately for us, he doesn't take center stage much until he comes into his first great adventure about a third of the way through the book, which more than makes up for things. The book is otherwise largely told from Lucy's point of view.

From the Pevensies' point of view, it's been a year since they were last in Narnia - and in fact, even once they are in the Narnian world, they aren't in Narnia itself this time. Caspian (for whom three years have passed) is fulfilling an oath he took at his coronation to sail for a year and a day eastward to find and if need be rescue the seven lords who were disposed of by his usurping uncle Miraz years ago by being sent to explore the unknown eastern seas beyond the Lone Islands - a Narnian possession that we've previously heard of but never seen. When the Pevensies and Eustace join the ship, the Dawn Treader is nearing the Lone Islands, where the ship's company meets one of a series of adventures, this being their last landfall before striking out into uncharted seas eastward.
