114 CRITICAL ANALYSIS Critical Analysis – This thing we call ‘time’ Early in the story, Peter and Susan seek out the Professor to talk about Lucy’s fascination with Narnia, Peter tells the Professor that it is only logical that, if something is “real,” it must be real all the time. p. 52What does this statement mean? Is time real…? If you believe it is real, then shouldn’t five minutes seem to pass at the exact same speed no matter what you’re doing? Think of times in your life when it seemed that “time stood still.” Jot them down. Now think of times in your life when it seemed that “time sped by.” Jot them down.
115 DiscussionCompare your list with others in the class. What do you think? Is time real or is it something that seems to pass at different speeds for different people depending on where they are and what they’re doing? Many fantasy stories deal with twists in time, in particular, stories about time travel. Explain why you think time travel is or is not possible.
