What in the World is on the Other Side of the World?

Postby The Scribbler » Oct 18, 2009 2:11 pm

I was looking at my Narnia map (Pauline Baynes) and I realized that I have never seen the left side of the world in which Narnia is located! I have always seen the right side, and the voyage of the DT took place towards the left of the world, or I suppose more technically, the East, but I have never really seen the West side of the world. Does anyone have a map of the whole world, or are we left to speculate??? :)

I don't believe there are any maps that show beyond Caldron Pool. We know two things though. 1. Beyond the Wild Woods of the West there are ice-capped mountains and the green hill with the garden on top of it. 2. In LB the lion skin floats down the pool from the west and we are told a hunter shot it, which would imply that people live in that direction. Other than that, we do not know.

Good question, The Cribbler, and good answer, duaghter of the King. I believe Lewis left it to us to imagine with the clues he gave us.

I've thought of that too. Perhaps the more pressing question is that, since the world of Narnia is flat, what is on the other side?

Actually, there is a map that I have seen that shows all the way to Telmar Castle. Not sure if Lewis designed it or not, but it is out there, and the rest of the world is portrayed quite accurately to the books. Let me see if I can find it...

In MN it says that the land of Narnia (I’m guessing Lewis means Narnia as a country and not Narnia as a world) ends at the waterfall. Past that is the Western wild, and then there is the garden that Digory gets the apple from. I’m thinking Telmar is either in or just past the Western Wild.

The west is "further up an further in". So far I haven't seen a map of "further up and further in". I bet that it would be pretty cool though.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for but, my sister and I did this. Hopes this helps.
