Meet the Author

C. S. Lewis

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Pauline Baynes has produced hundreds of wonderful illustrations for the seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia. In 1968 she was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for her outstanding contribution to children's literature.

Biography

C. S. Lewis was famous both as a fiction writer and as a Christian thinker, and his biographers and critics sometimes divide his personality in two: the storyteller and the moral educator, the "dreamer" and the "mentor." Yet a large part of Lewis's appeal, for both his audiences, lay in his ability to fuse imagination with instruction. "Let the pictures tell you their own moral," he once advised writers of children's stories. "But if they don't show you any moral, don't put one in. ... The only moral that is of any value is that which arises inevitably from the whole cast of the author's mind."

Storytelling came naturally to Lewis, who spent the rainy days of his childhood in Ireland writing about an imaginary world he called Boxen. His first published novel, Out of the Silent Planet, tells the story of a journey to Mars; its hero was loosely modeled on his friend and fellow Cambridge scholar J.R.R. Tolkien. Lewis enjoyed some popularity for his Space Trilogy (which continues in Perelandra and That Hideous Strength), but nothing compared to that which greeted his next imaginative journey, to an invented world of fauns, dwarfs, and talking animals -- a world now familiar to millions of readers as Narnia.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first book of the seven-volume Chronicles of Narnia, began as "a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood," according to Lewis. Years after that image first formed in his mind, others bubbled up to join it, producing what Kate Jackson, writing in Salon, called "a fascinating attempt to compress an almost druidic reverence for wild nature, Arthurian romance, Germanic folklore, the courtly poetry of Renaissance England and the fantastic beasts of Greek and Norse mythology into an entirely reimagined version of what's tritely called 'the greatest story ever told.'"

The Chronicles of Narnia was for decades the world's bestselling fantasy series for children. Although it was eventually superseded by Harry Potter, the series still holds a firm place in children's literature and the culture at large. (Narnia even crops up as a motif in Jonathan Franzen's 2001 novel The Corrections). Its last volume appeared in 1955; in that same year, Lewis published a personal account of his religious conversion in Surprised by Joy. The autobiography joined his other nonfiction books, including Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, and The Great Divorce, as an exploration of faith, joy and the meaning of human existence.

Lewis's final work of fiction, Till We Have Faces, came out in 1956. Its chilly critical reception and poor early sales disappointed Lewis, but the book's reputation has slowly grown; Lionel Adey called it the "wisest and best" of Lewis's stories for adults. Lewis continued to write about Christianity, as well as literature and literary criticism, for several more years. After his death in 1963, The New Yorker opined, "If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels."

Good To Know

The imposing wardrobe Lewis and his brother played in as children is now in Wheaton, Illinois, at the Wade Center of Wheaton College, which also houses the world's largest collection of Lewis-related documents, according to The Christian Science Monitor.

The 1994 movie, Shadowlands, based on the play of the same name, cast Anthony Hopkins as Lewis. It tells the story of his friendship with, and then marriage to, an American divorcee named Joy Davidman (played by Debra Winger), who died of cancer four years after their marriage. Lewis's own book about coping with that loss, A Grief Observed, was initially published under the pseudonym N. W. Clerk.

Several poems, stories, and a novel fragment published after Lewis's death have come under scrutiny as possible forgeries. On one side of the controversy is Walter Hooper, a trustee of Lewis's estate and editor of most of his posthumous works; on the other is Kathryn Lindskoog, a Lewis scholar who began publicizing her suspicions in 1988. Scandal or kooky conspiracy theory? The verdict's still out among readers.

First Chapter

Capítulo Uno

Lucía investiga en
el ropero

Había una vez cuatro niños cuyos nombres eran Pedro, Susana, Edmundo y Lucía. Esta historia relata lo que les sucedió cuando, durante la guerra y a causa de los bombardeos, fueron enviados lejos de Londres a la casa de un viejo profesor. Éste vivía en medio del campo, a diez millas de la estación más cercana y a dos millas del correo más próximo. El profesor no era casado, así es que un ama de llaves, la señora Macready, y tres sirvientas atendían su casa. (Las sirvientas se llamaban Ivy, Margarita y Betty, pero ellas no intervienen mucho en esta historia.)

El anciano profesor tenía un aspecto curioso, pues su cabello blanco no sólo le cubría la cabeza sino también casi toda la cara. Los niños simpatizaron con él al instante, a pesar de que Lucía, la menor, sintió miedo al verlo por primera vez, y Edmundo, algo mayor que ella, escondió su risa tras un pañuelo y simuló sonarse sin interrupción.

Después de ese primer día y en cuanto dieron las buenas noches al profesor, los niños subieron a sus habitaciones en el segundo piso y se reunieron en el dormitorio de las niñas para comentar todo lo ocurrido.

-- Hemos tenido una suerte fantástica-- dijo Pedro -- . Lo pasaremos muy bien aquí. El viejo profesor es una buena persona y nos permitirá hacer todo lo que queramos.

-- Es un anciano encantador-- dijo Susana.

-- ¡Cállate!-- exclamó Edmundo. Estaba cansado, aunque fingía noestarlo, y esto lo ponía siempre de un humor insoportable -- . ¡No sigas hablando de esa manera!

-- ¿De qué manera?-- preguntó Susana -- . Además ya es hora de que estés en la cama.

-- Tratas de hablar como mamá-- dijo Edmundo -- . ¿Quién eres para venir a decirme cuándo tengo que ir a la cama? ¡Eres tú quien debe irse a acostar!

-- Mejor será que todos vayamos a dormir-- interrumpió Lucía -- . Si nos encuentran conversando aquí, habrá un tremendo lío.

-- No lo habrá-- repuso Pedro, con tono seguro -- . Éste es el tipo de casa en la que a nadie le preocupará lo que nosotros hagamos. En todo caso, ninguna persona nos va a oír. Estamos como a diez minutos del comedor y hay numerosos pasillos, escaleras y rincones entremedio.

-- ¿Qué es ese ruido?-- dijo Lucía de repente.Ésta era la casa más grande que ella había conocido en su vida. Pensó en todos esos pasillos, escaleras y rincones, y sintió que algo parecido a un escalofrío la recorría de pies a cabeza.

-- No es más que un pájaro, tonta-- dijo Edmundo.

-- Es una lechuza-- agregó Pedro -- . Éste debe ser un lugar maravilloso para los pájaros... Bien, creo que ahora es mejor que todos vayamos a la cama, pero mañana exploraremos. En un sitio como éste se puede encontrar cualquier cosa. ¿Vieron las montañas cuando veníamos? ¿Y los bosques? Puede ser que haya águilas, venados... Seguramente habrá halcones...

-- Y tejones-- dijo Lucía.

-- Y zorros-- dijo Edmundo.

-- Y conejos-- agregó Susana.

Pero a la mañana siguiente caía una cortina de lluvia tan espesa que, al mirar por la ventana, no se veían las montañas ni los bosques; ni siquiera la acequia del jardín.

-- ¡Tenía que llover!-- exclamó Edmundo.

Los niños habían tomado el desayuno con el profesor, y en ese momento se encontraban en una sala del segundo piso que el anciano había destinado para ellos. Era una larga habitación de techo bajo, con dos ventanas hacia un lado y dos hacia el otro.

-- Deja de quejarte, Ed-- dijo Susana -- . Te apuesto diez a uno a que aclara en menos de una hora. Por lo demás, estamos bastante cómodos y tenemos un montón de libros.

-- Por mi parte, yo me voy a explorar la casa-- dijo Pedro.

La idea les pareció excelente y así fue como comenzaron las aventuras. La casa era uno de aquellos edificios llenos de lugares inesperados, que nunca se conocen por completo. Las primeras habitaciones que recorrieron estaban totalmente vacías, tal como los niños esperaban. Pero pronto llegaron a una sala muy larga con las paredes repletas de cuadros, en la que encontraron una armadura. Después pasaron a otra completamente cubierta por un tapiz verde y en la que había un arpa arrinconada. Tres peldaños más abajo y cinco hacia arriba los llevaron hasta un pequeño zaguán. Desde ahí entraron en una serie de habitaciones que desembocaban unas en otras. Todas tenían estanterías repletas de libros, la mayoría muy antiguos y algunos tan grandes como la Biblia de una iglesia. Más adelante entraron en un cuarto casi vacío. Sólo había un gran ropero con espejos en las puertas. Allí no encontraron nada más, excepto una botella azul en la repisa de la ventana.

-- ¡Nada por aquí!-- exclamó Pedro, y todos los niños se precipitaron hacia la puerta para continuar la excursión. Todos menos Lucía, que se quedó atrás. ¿Qué habría dentro del armario? Valía la pena averiguarlo, aunque, seguramente, estaría cerrado con llave. Para su sorpresa, la puerta se abrió sin dificultad. Dos bolitas de naftalina rodaron por el suelo.
