What do they hope it will achieve? Think about the following characters. What role do they play in Lyra's journey?

Did the ending surprise you? Did it leave you satisfied? He then discusses that books for children are 'inevitably didactic'. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia.

It is discussed that the trilogy is anti-Chronicles in its ideology. Both works talk about the Fall of human, yet they differ in the way they deal with it. The Chronicles of Narnia shows fall as being something negative, yet ' For Pullman the Fall must be seen as positive because it represents the necessary and natural transition from childhood to adulthood' Cuthew Starting from this notion, it maybe considered that Pullman's work is religiously irresponsible as it tends to make children question whether 'Fall' or 'sin' is something good or bad.

We believed them, even though we could see that what they were doing was wicked and evil and wrong We thought Dust must be bad too, because they were grown up and they said so.

But what if it isn't? What if it's — " She said breathlessly, "Yeah! What if it's really good.

Pullman Northern Lights, pp. In other words, Pullman is providing an ideology that 'Fall' should be considered as something good because it resembles the Rihane 6 discovery of oneself while to Lewis, who is a conservative Christian writer, sin resides with bad people. Northern Lights arises questions of how whether witches are good or bad, or whether murder can be justified.

Your father en't the kind of man to deny or conceal the truth, and it left the judge with a problem. He'd killed all right, he'd shed blood, but he was defending his home and his child against an intruder.

On t'other hand, the law allows any man to avenge the violation of his wife, and the dead man's lawyers argued that he were doing just that.

Morally speaking, this notion sheds the spots lights on the ideologies that Pullman is providing within his book. Witches in Pullman's 'world' also differ from Lewis' White Witch who is a purely evil character.

The witch who kills Will's father, for example, does so not out of malevolence but because of a broken heart' Squires In this notion, Pullman tends to disclaim the old accusation of 'bad witches' which the Church used to promote during the 16th and 17th century in Europe. Also, he mentions again the issue of tolerating death depending on the circumstances and intentions.

Besides religious and ethical issues, Northern Lights 'denounces the Church and its Oblation Board [. Northern Lights is not only the adventure of young Lyra in a fantastic world, it is also the motif of child from the phase of innocence to that of experience. Some readers say that daemons in the story are presentation of a person's sexuality.

Daemons are animals who change constantly, yet they obtain their constant shape when the child reaches puberty. In such way, Rihane 7 Daemons can be interpreted as the child's sexual awakening and as children's shift from 'innocence to experience'.


They were captured She felt those hands It wasn't allowed Not supposed to touch Similar to Tolkien, Lewis, and Rowling, Pullman has succeeded in amusing readers from all ages. Northern Lights tells the adventure of a young girl, Lyra, who goes on a quest in what seems to be an alternative world that contains witches, talking animals, and magic. The element of fantastic in the novel served its 'delighting' goal.

On another hand, Pullman's work seems not to be free of the ideologies of sexuality, morality, and religion. Whether intentionally or not, the first book of His Dark Materials trilogy raises many questions of what is 'good' and 'bad' while most of the ideologies it discusses are considered for granted 'bad', like that of murder and witches.

Northern Lights is more than just an adventure in a fantastic world, it is the journey of a child from innocence to experience. Therefore, Pullman's novel can be considered as being intrusive on some levels and may be seen by conservatives as downright sinister. London: Palgrave Macmillan, Cuthew, Lucy Marie.

Ezard, John. Fully Booked: The Whitbread judges made the right choice. Philip Pullman's extraordinary novels are not just for children.

Daemons are animals who change constantly, yet they obtain their constant shape when the child reaches puberty. The notion of a supposedly orphaned child who goes on a journey in a fantastic world is entertaining to a child's imagination and to an adult's mind as well.

Think about the following characters. How to deal with that? The witch who kills Will's father, for example, does so not out of malevolence but because of a broken heart' Squires
