    But if one considers Abram's definition which embraces different literary genres, then Lewis has indeed written a narrative that is good story telling on a primary level and also where a "correlated order of agents, concepts, and events" 4 is viable on a secondary level. A remnant of Aslan's people hiding in the caves and deep woods are delighted at finding the children and the expectation of the witch's overthrow. This earthy saga of Sussex rural life with Ada Doom, and the Starkadders including the lustful Seth, and the Church of the Quivering Brethren as experienced by the year-old outsider Flora Poste continues to appeal to fresh generations. The fairy tale can help to set before the imagination something that baffles the intellect.

    She has suffered intensely going through the most inhuman treatment. Those who rape her and some other women along with her, symbolize the savagery prevailing at that time. Unbeknownst to the Capitol, the jabber jays were able to procreate with mockingbirds and pass along some of their DNA. Then, "the reader must endeavor to grasp the entire meaning, connecting by an intellectual process the account of what is literally impossible with the parts that are not impossible but historically true, these being interpreted allegorically in common with the part which, so far as the letter goes, did not happen at all. S might have said.
