036 – Land Lower Than Underland

February 27, 2012

    Listen to as PODCAST: LM0036-Lower Than Underland 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just when Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum think there is no place lower than Underland they find out how wrong they were.


In The Silver Chair our friends become trapped while trying to rescue the lost prince. They find Gnomes, or Earthmen who are under the spell of the Lady of the Green Kirtle. She rules Underland and is planning to use Prince Rilian as a slave-king to take over Narnia.

When they defeat the Queen they learn of Bism, an entire world below Underland where the Gnomes previously lived. There is a fire river between Bism and Underland that is inhabited by Salamanders. In Bism itself things like diamonds and rubies grow that you can eat or squeeze into juice. The prince is so fascinated by this place he nearly goes there.

If you could visit one place from the Chronicles what would it be? Let me know by sharing your thoughts and leaving other comments or questions below.

    Not counting Aslan’s country from the Last Battle (I’ll be going there anyway one day), I’d choose Cair Paravel in the Golden Age of Narnia for my visit.
