This chapter gives a detailed account of the genesis of Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia. It draws on published and unpublished manuscripts, as well as on Lewis’s reminiscences and Hooper’s own memories relevant to the writing of the books. The chapter throws light both on the writing process and on the content of the Chronicles, including the model of Puddleglum and Narnia’s version of the ontological argument for the existence of God.

Keywords:   C. S. Lewis, Chronicles of Narnia, ontological argument
