The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Can you compare the characters to different seasons?

When the children are put on the thrown in chapter 17 is there any evidence of them being compared to the seasons in a year?

I'm sorry, I've read this book so many times I can't count them, and I have never come across this question or used it with my students. I just read the chapter three times (yes, again), and I just don't see it. The following is the only thing I can cite for you;

"And Peter became a tall and deep-chested man and a great warrior, and he was called King Peter the Magnificant. And Susuan grew into a tall and gracious woman with black hair that fell almost to her feet and the kings of the countries beyond the sea began to send ambassadors asking for her hand in marriage. And she was called Susan the gentle. Edmund was a graver and quieter man than Peter, and great in council and judgment. He was called King Edmund the just. But as for Lucy, she was always gay and golden-haired, and all princes in those parts desired her to be their Queen, and her own people called her Lucy the Valiant."

If I had to put seasons to the four myself, I could actually onlt come up with two. Lucy of course would be spring, always young and gay; Edmund would be winter, as he is graver and quieter than he was. Fall and Summer would belong to Peter and Susan, but I'm not sure where I'd place either. Maybe Peter would have the summer; he was valiant and his reign was strong.... summer is a bit more constant that fall........... so I guess I'll have to go with that.
