Things never happen the same way twice.

It's fascinating to read this back to back with [b:The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe|100915|The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1)|C.S. Lewis|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1353029077l/100915._SY75_.jpg|4790821] (as you should if you're reading them in published order). For the children, only a year has passed, but for Narnia, it's been far, far longer. So long, in fact, that talking animals, walking trees, and even Aslan himself are little more than myths and the Age of Man has come to a land we once knew.

It's a fascinating way to tell the story from an adult's perspective, but at the same time can be a little harder for children, since it jumps around rather more, between the perspective of new Prince Caspian (hopeful there is a little magic in the world) and the four children from the first book (called back from across the worlds). It's especially odd, that other than the four original children and Aslan, all of the rest of the characters we knew about have been dead for a thousand years. I don't think my children noticed that particular point, but it's certainly an interesting one.

Overall, it's a weaker story and wouldn't really stand alone, but as a sequel it works. I do remember having read the entire series when I was a child, but I honestly don't remember anything from any of the books but [b:The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe|100915|The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1)|C.S. Lewis|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1353029077l/100915._SY75_.jpg|4790821]. So it's quite lovely rediscovering all of them. Onward to [b:The Voyage of the Dawn Treader|140225|The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (Chronicles of Narnia, #3)|C.S. Lewis|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1343185059l/140225._SX50_.jpg|3349054]! At least this time skip is shorter.

Side note: The Lord of the Rings movies--and popular culture--mean that Dwarves apparently must have a Scottish accent. I always find myself doing voices when reading aloud; switching accents entirely is rather mentally taxing. ( )

For me, "Prince Caspian" isn't one of the highlights of the Narnia series. Although it continues the journey of the Pevensie children, it seems like relatively bog-standard fantasy fare, with new characters who I actually find don't enhance the story that much. "The Magician's Nephew" suggested there were so many worlds out there, and this - while not a bad story, by any means - doesn't take much advantage of Lewis' imagination, beyond a few funny incidents. Perhaps I'm just not interested in the more standard fantasy tropes that appear here. ( )

We're back in Narnia with the Pevensie children. They were called back to aide Prince Caspian in his fight to save Narnia. Many years have passed (in Narnia) since they were there last and the land they knew so well had changed drastically. ( )

Jack calls it Old Narnia, but there is a liberal Lewis, and if he is sometimes flawed, he’s always valuable. The second Narnia book in the original publication order details a civil war between the indigenous Old Narnia and last century’s invaders; you could imagine this being like a rising of the Indians of North America or South Asia, though Jack’s villains were probably newspapermen clad in steel grey Victorian style, (and there is in the book some shedding at the end of frumpy schoolgirl uniforms, which would seem old to us, maybe, and adopting more ordinary dress), and his heroes the chaps you might meet in an English pub, or out in the woods somewhere far from London. (There’s certainly a lot of nature in the book.) Maybe that makes it all a bit too realistic, but I do like the history of the novel better than he does, though I don’t blame him. It’s not worth losing a friend over.

There’s also a lot about what has been called old religion, nature religion, which is dealt with more kindly than many of Jack’s “admirers” would dish out on an ordinary Sunday somewhere in the South. (I bought a few country albums awhile back as a social study, but I wish I didn’t have to listen to it at work at all. It would be better if they could just leave Jesus out of their crude little world, in my opinion, than to have the Savior be their bar-hopping buddy whose job is to keep their lovers in line…. If religion is just empty bragging let it go. What’s left won’t be good, but it will be some improvement, believe it or not.) “Prince Caspian” doesn’t have any unkind words for astrology, for example, and a few kind ones. If you look across the whole spectrum of pagan-y things there is a definite rejection of its form as malice and ethnic unkindness, but there is an important element that “Bacchus and his wild girls” are alright provided that they stay close to “the High King of all High Kings”.

But the best part of Narnia is probably the personal morality; in this volume Jack takes on the theme of luxury and wealth. It took me awhile to grasp exactly what he was saying about it, if you like and if I have, but I think that the main thrust has to do with the relation between luxury and social life or relationships. One of the squirrels wants to be generous, but not taken advantage of, and at the beginning the children from England are visiting a Narnia castle they used to live in and savoring memories of social events, and when I think I got it was when the villain was ruined by his luxury, not directly I guess you could say by overconsumption but indirectly by the friends it brought him—and then at the end there’s a feast. There’s actually a lot about food in the book, mostly about scrounging for food and not having a satisfactory selection, that sort of thing being one of the perks of wealth and circumstance.

There’s also good character work too. The Dwarfs are interesting as a sort of half-magical type, being either a Narnia person with a materialist bent, (a small person, you might say), or half-Dwarfs are on the mundane side but are mixed up in the magic in non-obvious ways. (Dickens might be a Dwarf; Tolstoy, a half-Dwarf.) The Giant is big on the inside, but not calculating.

My favorite character work was probably Lucy’s, since I’m a little girl on the inside. Lion God told Lucy not to let her friends bully away her intuitions…. If no one else hears, listen alone, and without regrets. Steal away…. Yes, little girl, you can be part of this Bible study even if you voted for Obama, but you can’t speak unless you voted for Trump too…. That’s what they say, but Lion God asks you on what level are you free. Have no regrets, for they can only bully you when you’re still in sight.

Pretty fun. I believe this is the last time all four of the Pevensie children appear together in Narnia because apparently you can become an adult while in Narnia but you can’t enter it if you’re slightly older than a tween (I guess the rules were bent a little for the Cabbie and his wife). So that’s sad but this was also the introduction of Prince Caspian, who is okay, and Reepicheep, the greatest character in entirety of the Chronicles of Narnia. ( )
