Blurb/Shorttext:
C.S.Lewis's (1898-1963) the seven volumes of the Chronicles of Narnia opened a new era of reading and understanding myth. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien revived a new concept of myth, which based on accepting myth as a truth and they introduced their views in their works especially the Chronicles of Narnia and Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings. Lewis forged Greek, Norse, Arthurian, Christian, and many other mythologies into his Narnia using what he called mythic pattern. His belief in the truthfulness of myth was unchallenged and this clearly manifested in their club "the Inklings", where they discussed the validity of myth as a fact or part of a fact. He employed myth to draw the 'myth' of Christ, which he said it is a true one. Although Narnia is classified as children's literture, it has a direct relation with Lewis's experience of conversion to christianity. This experience is the corner stone of perceiving myth as a truth rather than illusion.
