Abstract

Because of Lewis’s typological approach to his use of sources, it is possible to see Aslan not just as a straight allegory of Christ but as embodying elements from other mythic systems; in this case, Balder, a figure from Norse mythology. This is supported by Lewis’s known love for northern myths and his particular reaction to the lines about Balder from Longfellow’s “Tegnér’s Drapa.”
