- Edited a theme:
Mars: This book is dominated by thematic imagery associated with the planet Mars, as understood in Medieval times. War, knighthood, chivalry, battles, etc. are strewn all throughout the book; while the other major aspect of Mars, woodcraft and forests (as Mars Silvanus, the god of the forest) characterizes the story as well: Narnia is overgrown with woods, Aslan reawakens the Dryads, who march into battle at the last moment, and a man beating a child is even turned into a tree.
