We Give Links 8: Ana Mardoll on Narnia


In my dissection of His Dark Materials, I mentioned a discussion I had had about the problems with C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia – in particular the sexist and racist patterns in them.  More recently, I’ve learned of Ana Mardoll’s exhaustive ongoing deconstruction of the series, which also describes the pervasive classism and several other harmful patterns in the books.

Go and read her Ramblings.

Mardoll’s blog also hosts thorough deconstructions of several other series, which are also worth looking at.
