Question about colour

Question about colour

Lewis emphasizes colors in this story: black and white, green, yellow, etc. How do the colors suggest similarities or contrasts in the book? Are the colors related to any specific ideas or qualities, such as good or evil?

This sounds to me a lot like a homework question. I have a feeling your teacher wants to hear your ideas, not ours. The best help I can give you is to suggest that you read the book for yourself and come up with your own answers. It's really a good book and very much worth reading--all of the Narnia books are!

I'm reminded of the Lady of the Green Kirtle/ the Green Serpent in The Silver Chair. Nasty green.
Of course, there's a lot of description of the gold of the Lion, and the cherry red of the symbol of the Lion on Peter's shield.
