1Gospel of John 20:22. 11. Alert readers of Lewis will recall a similar, powerful image in his sermon “The Weight of Glory” in The Weight of Glory, ¶12. 3For the allusion to the tingling feeling in the children’s blood, see Gift of speech. 42 Corinthians 3:18. 2HBB ASLAN’S COUNTRY — The land that is home to Aslan and to all creatures who recognize Aslan with joy. It is a range of incredibly high yet snow-free mountains, bathed in late-spring/midsummer warm breezes and freshness, alive with the sounds of running water, waterfalls, and birdsong against a “background of immense silence” (SC 1) and covered with orchards of autumn-ripe fruit, forests of mighty trees, and flower-decked meadows.

In the great scene (10) in which the g ift of speech and thus reasoning is conferred upon the animals, Aslan’s first use5 of the name “Narnia” in his command to the land and its creatures to awaken is reciprocated by the very first word they speak: his name. ” Lewis found the name in the notes to Edward William Lane’s Arabian Nights. He pronounced the name “ASS-lan” (see Letters to Children, 29). As is also an old Scandinavian word meaning “god,” as in Asgard, the home of the gods in Norse mythology.

At this point, the place is also known as the Great Mound, or simply the Mound. Prince Caspian’s army makes its headquarters here during the War of Deliverance. And though heretofore perhaps the most hallowed place in Narnia, it is not mentioned again in the Chronicles, except once, in passing, in HHB 12. ] 1Since LWW was the first of the Chronicles to be written, this fact is especially significant. See Advice to an Intelligent Reader from an Intelligent Reader. ASLAN’S NAME — It is the tradition among the Centaurs that Aslan 1 has nine names (SC 16); but we are given only four, and these may not be among the nine the Centaurs know.
