The paper examines how both Hitler and the White Witch depict the tyrant in fiction, as well as in the governmental nightmare of Germany during the Second World War. The paper explores how, by behaving selfishly, and not for the greater good of society, C.S. Lewis seems to have created the White Witch as a model for the dictator or tyrannical ruler. This is how the tyrant is defined through a fictional work and within the historical data displayed in Hitler's biography.

From the Paper:

"In this literary study, the work of C.S. Lewis will be compared with that of the historical author John Tolland in relation to Hitler's tyranny in government. In Lewis's novel The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, the White Witch is a tyrant that rules with an iron hand, not allowing anyone else to share her power. In this manner, both Lewis and Tolland depict tyrants, which provide examples of behaviors and governmental procedures that do not rule for the greater good of society. In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, it is clear that that C. S. Lewis wishes to depict the White Witch as a kind of model for the tyrant that does not wish to share power."
