dc.description.abstractThe two books used in this study are CS Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia and JK Rawling's Harry Potter series. This study was undertaken to examine how an author's life and the reasons why the novel was written affects society's reception of the book. It also delves into how the media and the religious atmosphere of a culture influence how a book may be accepted by a society. These forces affect whether the books are positively met, or whether society seeks to censor or ban them. Finally, the question must be asked, what impact does a society's acceptance or rejection of a work of literature have on the schools, and the students' ability to choose his/her own reading material?en_US
