Abstract

Discusses various species in the Space Trilogy considered to be “hnau,” or rational beings: the eldila, sorns, hrossa, and pfifltriggi. Compares this treatment of rationality and self-awareness with the Talking Beasts of Narnia in The Magician’s Nephew and The Last Battle. Concludes that Lewis’s purpose is to show Man’s interconnectedness with, and responsibility for, the rest of creation.
