You and your children may be familiar with the English author C. S. Lewis’s beloved series, The Chronicles of Narnia.
These books offer engaging stories for children and unveil universal truths they will remember for life.
In 2023, Hartford students will study C. S. Lewis’s timeless works and ponder their truth and beauty.
The following video explains how Lewis’ work can be discovered in this way.
C.S Lewis uses the text to teach truth, goodness, and beauty.
In ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’, Lewis introduces a range of characters who reflect the human condition. Goodness and virtue are manifest in characters like Lucy and Peter, whereas evil and vice, are evoked in Jadis the witch.
C.S Lewis draws parallels from the ancient and holy text, the Bible, including references to “Adam and Eve”, the forbidden fruit, a hidden garden, and much more.
Aslan (a key figure within the text) makes a heroic sacrifice to save a friend, drawing parallels with the sacrifice of Jesus.
We are delighted Hartford students will have an opportunity to study such high-quality literature, and learn from the great Oxford Scholar, C.S Lewis.
