Once again from and on the Dead Ends!
An analysis from an Expert in the matter of fact:
C.S. Lewis’s last book of the Chronicles of Narnia, The Last Battle, begins with these memorable words: “In the last days of Narnia, far up to the west beyond Lantern Waste and close beside the great waterfall, there lived an Ape. He was so old that no one could remember when he had first come to live in those parts, and he was the cleverest, ugliest, most wrinkled Ape you can imagine.”
“…The entire nation is under an agony of suspense because of the disappearance of the most important person in the country, and yet, this same person is enjoying secrete political dialogues quite unmindful of the agony of the nation he is leading! What a diabolical cunning.In The Last Battle, the Narnians finally come to their sense (after much destruction) and start to question the authenticity of the lion and demand to closely inspect him. The Dead cannot imitate the Living forever. When the Ape realises that he can no longer ignore their request, he disown the donkey and publicly accuses him of misleading the multitude.
When in the end the truth comes to light, it will be inevitable that those who purposely misinform us will point fingers on each other and accuse and disown each other. But it will be for nothing.“
