The winged horse, formerly the cab-horse Strawberry, who carries Polly and Digory to the mountain garden. Writing[ edit ] Lewis had originally intended only to write the one Narnia novel, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. However, when Roger Lancelyn Green asked him how a lamp post came to be standing in the midst of Narnian woodland, Lewis was intrigued enough by the question to attempt to find an answer by writing The Magician's Nephew, which features a younger version of Professor Kirke from the first novel.
The other six Chronicles of Narnia were written between andThe Magician's Nephew was written over a six-year period between and This may be as a result of the autobiographical aspects of the novel, as it reflects a number of incidents and parallels very close to his own experiences.
He managed to finish close to three-quarters of the novel, and then halted work once again after Roger Green, to whom Lewis showed all his writing at the time, suggested there was a structural problem in the story.
Finally he returned to the novel inafter finishing The Last Battle in the spring of that year and completed early in The Lefay Fragment[ edit ] The original opening of the novel differs greatly from the published version, and was abandoned by Lewis.
Digory lives with an Aunt Gertrude, a former school mistress with an officious, bullying nature, who has ended up as a Government minister after a lifetime of belligerent brow-beating of others. Whenever his aunt is absent, Digory finds solace with the animals and trees, including a squirrel named Pattertwig.
Polly enters the story as a girl next door who is unable to understand the speech of non-human creatures. She wants to build a raft to explore a stream which leads to an underground world. Digory helps construct the raft, but saws a branch from a tree necessary to complete it, in order not to lose face with Polly.
This causes him to lose his supernatural powers of understanding the speech of trees and animals. At this point the fragment ends.

Both Digory and Lewis were children in the early s, both wanted a pony, and both were faced with the death of their mothers in childhood. Digory is separated from his father, who is in India, and misses him. Lewis was schooled in England after his mother's death, while his father remained in Ireland.
He also had a brother in India. Lewis was a voracious reader when a child, Digory is also, and both are better with books than with numbers.
Digory and Polly struggle with sums when trying to work out how far they must travel along the attic space to explore an abandoned house, Lewis failed the maths entrance exam for Oxford University. Lewis remembered rainy summer days from his youth and Digory is faced with the same woe in the novel.
