The Chronicles’ Companion is a series of poetic and devotional-style reflections on C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia. Through dynamic poetry and challenging reflections, The Chronicles’ Companion series uncovers the captivating, hidden element in Lewis’s classic tales so that you, the reader, can better grasp each Chronicles’ spiritual insights. This series will provide a Companion to pair with each Chronicle.
Whether you have read one or all seven stories that comprise Lewis’s Narniad, your reading doubtless enthralled you with a fantastic sense of wonder that permeated your imagination, page after page. There is a reason for your enchantment that goes beyond good prose and well-used literary techniques. Each Chronicle is shaped by and exudes a certain hidden air that buries itself deep in its reader’s mind. But what is this air, this hidden contagion? The Chronicles’ Companion series endeavors to remedy this riddle via meter, rhyme, and contemplation.
Joy Through a Wardrobe is the first work in a series of poetic reflections on C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia. This poetic Companion series calls its reader to further enjoy and better understand the essence which frames each book in Lewis’s Chronicles—the characteristics of the seven planets in the Medieval cosmos. As the first work in the Companion series, Joy Through a Wardrobe is paired with the first work in the Chronicles series, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Reading through the pages of Joy Through a Wardrobe, the reader will discover poetry and reflections which perfectly accompany each chapter in The Lion by highlighting that chapter’s key characteristics. Furthermore, these poems and reflections are meant to act as a source of encouraging words that help the reader navigate the path to joy which Lewis strategically mapped out on every page in The Lion.
