Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C. S. Lewis

In Planet Narnia, Ward demonstrates that medieval cosmology, a subject which fascinated CS Lewis throughout his life, provides the imaginative key to the seven Narnia novels. Drawing on the whole range of Lewis's writings, 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. Written by Michael Ward.
