The Love of Death
Turkey's Future


Josh Scholar

It's been a long time since I read Narnia, but it seems to me that characters like the witch make no sense as real people. Only a religious person can believe in "evil" as a substance rather than as description of unwanted outcomes. And the concept of an evil person makes no sense. Certainly there are people in the real world who are evil, sometimes thoroughly, but Christian literature, of the sort that posits a devil as its source does not describe actual human evil. It describes a bland, abstract evil that's without human depth. And in the case of children's lit like Narnia, it's even worse. You wouldn't want to describe real evil to a child after all.
