In her article "The Centaur: Its History and Meaning in Human Culture," Elizabeth Lawrence claims that the contests between the centaurs and the Lapiths typify the struggle between civilization and barbarism. One of Glenstorm's own sons sacrificed himself in the Telmarine Castle Night Raid when he became trapped within the castle courtyard, and was slaughtered with the rest. He joined a project of a fellow officer from Vietnam, John Alto, who was working on a visual DVD of their tour of duty. He feels put upon by the school's principal, and he views his students as hapless and uninterested in anything he has to teach them.

The depressive centaur is driven to an edge by his work, humiliation, teasing and lack of money. In the films, the human face of a Centaur is slightly more horse-like, with long horse's ears, sometimes no eyebrows, and bigger noses. Out of all the creatures of Narnia, they were the most respected. With the grooms, the lesbian experience is sensual and tender, consisting largely of bathing, grooming, and soothing anxious ponies. Through emails, letters, and phone calls, he reached out to a network of men and encouraged them to share their stories for their families and grandchildren. He does it a lot, though this time is different.

Most still live in tribes far from civilization, while some have abandoned their isolationist traditions and adopted a more cosmopolitan life. I rather think that, in printing, Bodoni inaugurated this it without prejudice. Aloof towards other races and even at odds with others of their own kind, centaurs are an old race that is slowly coming to terms with the modern world. They were the only race that could interpret the dance of the Stars, which gave them foresight into certain events of the future, hence they were known for waking up before it gets light. Oaten cakes, apples, herbs, wine, and cheese formed the staple of a Centaur's diet. Instead of being afraid, though, he was more concerned about everyone else escaping, giving a perfect example of Centaur bravery and courage.
