FYS 1232 - Shakespeare’s Game of Thrones

Credits: 4
Violence, political intrigue, and religious conflict. Sex, spies, and magic. Moral ambiguity and heartbreaking deaths. These key features of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series and HBO’s Game of Thrones are fundamental to Shakespeare’s own vision of politics, history, and human nature. This course explores the affinities between Martin’s fantasy novel A Game of Thrones and several Shakespeare plays, and it asserts the relevance of Renaissance literature to contemporary popular fiction.(SPOILER ALERT!)
