Hello. I just want to point out a few things concerning what we have been talking about. It might sound like I'm being needlessly technical, but I'd like to point out that, according to C.S. Lewis himself, the Chronicles of Narnia are NOT allegory. He said that an allegory has a one-to-one corrospondence with all of its components. The Chronicles do not have that one-to-one corrospondence; rather, they are more of a story with parrallels (I think the example he used was how a smell of a flower can remind us of another place, so Aslan and the other parallels are to remind us of Christ and other things). Another thing we must remember when looking at the story of DragonRaid is that it is (I think?) a allegory. If EdenAgain is to represent Earth, the Overlord Jesus, DCs sin, etc., then Earth does not need to be in the story. Now, the real question is, can you maintain the allegory of DR and still have some connection with Earth? - steve brown S.D.G.
