Other Pendragons

Who could some of the other Pendragons have been? Could William Wilberforce or someone close to him have been?

Eudyptula albosginata
Haman - n + s = Hamas. And that's not the only similarity.

I like that thought. It seems like a good possibility.

...and this is only a forum. Guess away.

I'd vote for St. Anthony, whose feast day it is today, except that I think he was a bit too early. Still, who knows how or when exactly it all got started.

Surely Lewis himself would have had some fun coming up with a sort of list? It seems rather like a modern equivalent to the long catalogues of ancestors in the medieval and renaissance works he loved.

I agree. Besides, I like pretending that stories are real and fitting them into the real world. That's why I'm working at DisneyWorld... :-)

Sorry it's just me. I think that fiction is just fiction and unless it's in the book it ain't so.

I can't see the point of wasting time speculating on something which has not happened.

But isn't that exactly what the authors of works of fiction are doing in the first place? And thus a reader engages in the same activity merely by reading the book after the author has written it.

Wow. I could never write/say those words. I think fiction is just another kind of fact. :toothy-grin:

Well my approach to life must just be too pragmatic. :rolleyes:

If a work of fiction is good enough there should be enough in it to stimulate your imagination without needing to add anything.

but it is stimulating our imaginations... isn't that the point of this discussion? Imagining something that's based on the book? Unless all you're going to do is quote passages of the book back and forth, any discussion of a book must somehow involve something that is outside it.

Hmmm...what do you suppose it would say about our musings if it turned out that Bill himself were the current Pendragon?

Sort of a "This sentence is false" conundrum, eh?:-)
