So what is Narnia, exactly? Is it just a fantasy realm, or is it a mirror of our world? By traveling in Narnia, we can actually be induced to wonder at our own – with all the attendant joys and terrors. We will spend the summer re-reading Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, moving back and forth between worlds with the Pevensies and others. Along the way, we will also be examining Lewis’ apparent use of planetary imagery and symbolism as describe in Michael Ward’s acclaimed book Planet Narnia.

Andrew Lang was a famous folklorist; he collected stories from all over the world and complied them into a series of books named by color. This summer, we have the chance to explore and discuss selections from two books in the series: The Yellow Fairy Book and The Green Fairy Book. Grammar students interested in fairy tales – the weird, the wild, and the wonderful – should sign up. Little out-of-class work is expected; arrive with a book and a willingness to read and discuss the fantastical with other readers, and you will be introduced to an amusing and somewhat overlooked series of classic works.
