CS Lewis is often described as an "English writer", but in fact he was an Irishman who spent most of his life in England. The Voyage of the Dawntreader is perhaps the the most Irish influenced of the Narnia books, and not only echoes the Irish writer Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", but also older Irish myths such as the voyage of St Brendan and the voyage of Maelduin, which are known as "immrana" in Irish.

[quoting a rhyme a dryad used to sing over his cradle]
Where sky and water meet,/ Where the waves grow sweet/Doubt not, Reepicheep,/ To find all you seek/ There is the utter East.

Truly, these two were much better than The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, which I thought was dull. Why does Caspian look so different in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader than he did in Prince Caspian? The book says it was only three years between the two events in Narnian time. In the movie, it looks like he has aged three times that much. I was picturing him to look mostly the same, a little more world-weary perhaps, though. I thought that the boy that played Caspian in Prince Caspian overdid it. On the other hand, I thought the guy that played him in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was quite good. But, alas, the action will always be the same- mediocre. The stunts were acceptable, but certainly nothing better than that. I do not like how Aslan just breathes on people or things to make them be fixed, such as Reepicheep's tail. The reason for this is because in the books, when Aslan fixes something, it just happens. Besides, when Aslan does that breathing rubbish, it looked like he was yawning. If he does have to do the breathing, at least make it look good. I would never have guessed that Reepicheep was Warwick Davis. I'm sure the cast regretted their decision to be in this movie when they found out they would have to have a mouse as a castmate, even if it was Warwick Davis. But again, the filmmakers did the best they could with their tight budget. Besides, it was '89, and not everybody can do it as good as Star Wars can!
