* ValuesDissonance: It's not by far the only thing he bashes about [[BoardingSchoolOfHorror Experiment House]], nor close to what is considered worst about it, but Lewis seems to have problems with secular and gender-integrated education.

* EpilepticTrees[=/=]FanficFuel: What exactly the Lady of the Green Kirtle ''is''. At first she was said to be another witch along the lines of the White Witch. Then we found out in ''The Magician's Nephew'' that the White Witch was the only survivor of a destroyed universe, so the Lady of Green Kirtle couldn't have come from there. So who is she and where did she come from? WordOfGod says that she is the source of the green mist added in the film version of ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'', which was meant to foreshadow her role in the next story.

Added DiffLines:

* MyGreatestFailure: Averted. The kids seem to think that they have failed three of Aslan's four signs as they make their journey to find and save Rillian, and are particularly hard on themselves throughout the story. However, given that they ultimately succeed in their task, it is unclear whether or not they truly did fail any of them. While they clearly have difficulty in their interpretation of the signs, they have the help Aslan promised them in Puddleglum, and they eventually find their way to the Lady of the Green Kirtle's castle and save Rillian.


* ValuesResonance: The fact that the teachers allow such bullying to happen at the school is treated as a bad thing in the text. Despite SchoolBullyingIsHarmless enduring for decades after this was written, this is quite telling.

* ValuesResonance: The fact that the teachers allow such bullying to happen at the school is treated as a bad thing in the text. Despite SchoolBullyingIsHarmless enduring for decades after this was written, this is quite telling. The book also averts DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale, depicting Rilian's abduction and forced marriage as clearly horrific.


* FanNickname: The Lady of the Green Kirtle is often called the Green Lady and the Emerald Witch, despite neither appearing in the book's text.
** Note to the above: The back cover synopsis of each of the Collier Books editions of The Chronicles of Narnia (first published in 1970) ''do'' make reference to Rillian's escape from the Emerald Witch's underground kingdom.
* {{Fanon}}: Some fans seem to think that the Lady of the Green Kirtle is actually Jadis the White Witch reborn. This mostly comes from a mistake in a manual (''not'' [[GodNeverSaidThat written by Lewis himself]]) that describes Jadis as being in this book. Likewise Barbara Kellerman played both Jadis and the Green Lady in the BBC adaptations - but this is ignoring that several other actors also doubled up to play different roles across the adaptations (Kellerman also played the hag in ''Prince Caspian''). It probably doesn't help that some characters theorize that the Lady of the Green Kirtle is ''similar to'' Jadis.
* FridgeBrilliance: At the beginning of the story, Caspian is going to find Aslan and ask him what to do about his successor, given that his son and heir has been missing for years. When Jill meets Aslan for the first time, he tells her that he has been calling her and Eustace since before they called to him, and he then gives her the mission of finding Prince Rilian. Aslan was planning the answer before Caspian had even asked the question![[note]]Given that Aslan is meant to represent Jesus, Lewis may have intended this realization.[[/note]]

** The Green Lady, who bewitches people with her deceptively sweet appearance and music, is similar to the image that the {{hate|dom}}rs painted of Music/TaylorSwift during TheNewTens, especially once they started calling Tay-Tay a snake after her spat [[note]] on her part, a polite riposte to vitriolic lyrics [[/note]] with Music/KanyeWest in 2016 (also note that illustrator Pauline Baynes drew the Green Lady as blonde). Although, the character more closely resembles the [[SnakePeople image]] adopted by Taylor herself as an ironic nod to the term's inference of her supposed insidiousness.

* {{Applicability}}:
** The Lady of the Green Kirtle uses genuine atheist arguments -- Aslan is merely suggested in the mind by her cat as is the Sun by her lamp, the upper world is just a pacifying fantasy, etc. -- to try and persuade the heroes that there is no Aslan (God) and there is no Narnia (Heaven). She could also be considered a SatanicArchetype.
