Bolton333

Purpose of the Series

Recommended Posts

Might seem a stupid question to those of you who have been at home here for a long time already:

What do you think is the essence of the story? What does he want to tell us?

If I look at Harry Potter, for example I might say it is about the war against the dark side, against Voldemort. Or it could be about friendship, or about growing up in a changing world.

I always thought every good story would have to have an answer to this question. With Soiaf however, I am totally at a loss about what IS behind the story.

Is it about the Starks? Is it about the fight against the Others (or "the One enemy")? Is it about who will be king in the end?

Interested in your opinions!!

I think GRRM never had some message he wanted to send with this story. He only wanted to show a realistic story, about how things really work, even when it's set on a fantasy world. Maybe that's his message: he wants art to show people the real life, not fairy tales.
