Voyage of teh Dawn Treader is my favourite book from all the Chronicles of Narnia. I would like to talk about it and hear also your oppinion. I already have an idea about the symbols in the book but i am interested also in your oppinion. So the questions that i have are:
What are the 7 lords symbolising?
What is the Dragon island symbolise? is it about penance and reconcilliation since Eustace becomes a dragon and then is sorry for his behaviour and accepts the help of Aslan.
What does the Black island symbolises? Is it a symbol of hell, the place where all hope is lost and the greatest fears come to life?
My favourite island is he island of Voices.
Who are the Duffles? Are they symbolising the human race? Scared of God but also defiant, lazy, caring too much about the way they look, not listening to reason. Why are they so stupid: planting boiled potatoes and washing dishes before dinner?
Who is Coriakin? He has a long white beard and bare feet. He wears a red robe and a chaplet of oak leaves, and carries a carved staff. He only eats bread and drinks wine. He looks more like a bishop to me. He is angry on the Duffles for not listening but he loves them. He is both mocked and feared.
But why is this job a punishment for him?
What does the mogicians book symbolise?
