    Luultavasti niin hyvä teos tästä aiheesta kuin voisin kuvitella tällä hetkellä eli kun sarja on vielä kesken saatavan aikaiseksi Teoksessa käsitellään GoT universumin naisia ilahduttavan monesta eri näkökulmasta eikä siinä mielestäni yritetä tuputtaa mitään tiettyä näkemystä ylitse muiden paitsi ehkä sitä että GoT universumissa on monia mielenkiintoisia ja kulttuurisestikin merkittäviä naishahmoja mitä kukaan ei varmaan yritäkään kieltää Lukijaystävällisesti ja muutenkin hyvin kirjoitettuja artikkeleita joskin jonkun verran typoja oli eksynyt mukaan esim Daenerys on ilmeisesti jotenkin hirveän vaikea nimi kirjoittaa oikein Mutta en halua nillittää turhasta koska tämä on todella hyvä kokoelma Suosittelen 1 kaikille GoT faneille ja 2 kaikille 2010 luvun populaarikulttuurin naishahmoista kiinnostuneilleKirjoitan tästäkin vielä hieman monisanaisemman arvion blogiini kirjaihminenlivejournalcom kunhan saan koottua ajatukseni

    I have to admit I was hoping for a little There are some genuinely interesting chapters in here the highlight being the excellent Maiden Mother and Crone Motherhood in the World of Ice and Fire by Marta Eidsvag but I'm left with the inescapable impression that this book was a rush job and that some of the authors are fans of the booktelevision series but are not necessarily able to contextualise it within the fantasy genre as a whole In her chapter on Daenerys for example Rikke Schubart states Martin's novel is as far as I know the first text to establish a positive relationship between a heroine and dragons 120 and I would imagine that anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of fantasy lit would be able to gainsay this almost immediately Anne McCaffrey's Pern series is the obvious but certainly not the only counterexampleFurther there's just a number of low level errors throughout the book the assertion that only Arya and Brienne have named swords the assertion that Arya's sword is called Pin the assertion that Daenerys' grandfather is at the Wall it's all a bit sloppy But this doesn't really compare to the giant gaping hole that is the absence of any chapter dedicated to Sansa Stark There's the odd paragraph about her but no chapter focus Given that she's one of the main characters of both book and series this is a giant omission one not helped by the absence of any focus on for instance Margaery Tyrell or her grandmother Olenna not Oleanna book It's honestly baffling and underlines the impression that this book was pushed out before time

    I tried to get all the way through all the essays but after the fourth instance of wild conflation of books and show plus a claim that Dany and Drogo's relationship in the show was or less rape plus a further claim that David Benioff and DB Weiss are showing meticulous zeal in recreating Martin's books I just couldn't any

    I got through 10 of the essays and then just couldn't handle it any Could have used a really good editor especially for the essay that refers to Arya's sword Pin which must be a mistranslation of Needle and the dragon Grogon being a typo or something as the dragon is called Drogon

    I read three of the chapters and frankly found them tedious and not compelling at all The constant conflation of the books with the TV show seems to me uite unforgivable in a book meant to explore or criticise eitherboth Also some conclusions or descriptions are downright laughable like Daenerys' and Drogo's wedding night being or less rape in the TV show wherein lies the doubt?Some ideas that are presented have value to them but you might just as well read metas on tumblr I was really disappointed and as previously noted I did not finish the book

    Women are the new patriarchy in Game of Thrones and this anthology clearly has a lot to say about addressing its gender issues Whether for academics or fans of the show every chapter certainly opens up many possibilities to the ways in which episodes can now be analyzed Only a few setbacks that could be overlooked; which includes the last essay being heavy on theory with few and little references to the show as well as the occasional misspelling of characters' names and locations
