Ice and Fire, Meet Don Quixote

Greg Afinogenov shares a provocative, thought-provoking rumination on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire and the author’s playing with the form and function of fantasy literature. Referencing Cervantes’ Don Quixote (and alluding, tantalizingly, to Thomas Malory), Afinogenov puts forward an argument for the way the series is able to inspire critical readings of the text. While some may take issue with his implied positions regarding literary/mimetic fiction, his commentary on fantasy and Martin’s series are certainly worth a read.
