r36 – Land Lower Than Underland
December 11, 2013
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.
