Críticas:

'Much has been written about the historical resonances of Game of Thrones, but never quite like this. There is deep scholarship at work here, paired with an immersive understanding of the strange and yet strangely familiar lands of Westeros and Essos. Carolyne Larrington is the perfect guide: in luscious prose, she leads us through the Seven Kingdoms and on across the Narrow Sea, at each step exploring the echoes and parallels to be found in our own medieval past. Beautiful, haunting and thought-provoking, this is at once a celebration and an enrichment of George R. R. Martin's world. What more could a fan want?' - Helen Castor, Bye-Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge and bestselling author of Blood and Roses (2004), She-Wolves: The Women who Ruled England before Elizabeth (2010) and Joan of Arc: A History (2014)

Reseña del editor:

Game of Thrones is a phenomenon. As Carolyne Larrington reveals in this essential companion to George R R Martin's fantasy novels and the HBO mega-hit series based on them the show is the epitome of water-cooler TV. It is the subject of intense debate in national newspapers; by PhD students asking why Westeros has yet to see an industrial revolution, or whether astronomy explains the continent's climatic problems and unpredictable solstices ('winter is coming'); and by bloggers and cultural commentators contesting the series' startling portrayals of power, sex and gender. Yet no book has divulged how George R R Martin constructed his remarkable universe out of the Middle Ages. Discussing novels and TV series alike, Larrington explores among other topics: sigils, giants, dragons and direwolves in medieval texts; ravens, old gods and the Weirwood in Norse myth; and a gothic, exotic orient in the eastern continent, Essos. From the White Walkers to the Red Woman, from Casterley Rock to the Shivering Sea, this is an indispensable guide to the twenty-first century's most important fantasy creation.
