A Song of Ice and Fire is a series of epic fantasy novels by the American * George R. R. Martin*Five Books + One . The Untold History of Westeros (PDF).

Let us first consider Daenerys Targaryen and Jorah Mormont. When Jorah Mormont first meets her, she is also still a virgin. Jorah, on the other hand, is described as swarthy, brawny, bald, and hairy SoS, The exiled knight is the former head of House Mormont — whose sigil is a black bear in a green wood — and Lord of Bear Island.

Since the day he has been taken into her service, he increasingly develops a romantic attraction to her and, eventually, falls in love. Even though she worships his friendship and counsel, his advances make her feel uncomfortable. Daenerys, like the maid in the song, rejects the bear as a romantic partner.

Besides, the song to some extent applies to Sansa and Sandor Clegane. Sansa Stark is a classic example of a fair maid: she is eleven years old and beautiful. She wrote poetry. She knew how to dress. Sansa expects her own life and the world of Westeros also conform to these standards.

In the first novel the ideas that outer beauty reflects inner goodness and noble birth accounts for noble and chivalrous behavior are developed, just to be destroyed later on Caroll 4. Thus, Joffrey turns out to be cruel and abusive and it is Sandor Clegane, the Hound, who treats her rather gently and refuses to beat her when the young king commands him to.

I'll never dance with a hairy bear! Later on in the epic, Sansa even remembers Sandor Clegane kissing her the night he came into her bedroom, which he, in fact, never does. Furthermore, the song also mirrors the relationship between Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth. The warrior maiden Brienne, on the other hand, lacks feminine grace and is considered to be unattractive; she is tall, muscular, strong, and her features are broad, coarse, and covered in freckles.

Even though Jaime clearly finds Brienne unattractive and mocks her for her appearance24 at the beginning of their journey, he comes to develop a relationship with her that is built on respect and mutual support.

Later on in the novel, however, Jaime saves Brienne, who has ironically been thrown into a bear pit at Harrenhal. Of course, Brienne does not meet the standards of a fair maid and neither is Jaime the ideal noble, chivalrous knight. However, this does not mean that the song one-to-one recreates the three discussed relationships: it is not possible to apply each single line to each relationship.

I want to show that the ballade does not merely retell a Westerosi historical event but also serves as a warning and reminder, and, besides, foreshadows future events. He had extinguished the proud Reynes of Castamere and the ancient Tarbecks of Tarbeck Hall root and branch when he was still half a boy. It is the encounter between the bear and the maid that has a symbolic meaning for the overall epic. In the following lines, Lord Reyne directly addresses Lord Tytos and threatens him.

The song comes to an end and so does House Reyne.

In the last two lines of the third stanza, their fate is revealed. It merely focusses on the destruction of House Reyne. Thus there was no need for the composing singer to explicitly include them. Therefore, it serves as a threat and warning to those who try to rebel against the lion of Casterly Rock and question his authority, e.

And if the song were not enough, the shattered castles of the Reynes and Tarbecks still stood as mute testimony to the fate that awaited those who chose to scorn the power of Casterly Rock. In this way, he shall be reminded of the power of House Lannister and what might happen to his family if he does not surrender.

Edwyn was hurrying toward a door. She hurried faster, driven by the music.

Six quick strides and she caught him. And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low? In this regard, we should also take the wedding of Joffrey and Margaery into account.

There the song is played in order to flatter Tywin Lannister SoS, ; it is a conformation of the power of House 18 Lannister. Ironically, a few pages later a member of House Lannister, the young king Joffrey33, is poisoned and dies. Later on in the series, we find out that it was actually her and Peter Baelish who plotted against the young king. As we have seen, these songs, even though they are sometimes merely mentioned, contribute to the textuality and depth of the epic.

However, the songs mainly serve to pass down history, which is characteristically for a medieval world, in which orality is the main source of gaining knowledge about past and recent events. This rather gloomy ballad functions as a lesson and reminder of the power and dominance of House Lannister.

However, we must not forget that the accuracy of such poetic narratives leaves little to be desired. Nonetheless, its importance for the overall epic should not be underestimated.

The songs enrich the epic and invoke the impression of depth. They fulfill important functions in the social, cultural, and everyday life of the Westerosi people and shape the image of the society which is predominantly based on oral tradition Eilmann Joseph Harris.

Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside.

Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles. Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall.

Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. But as opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization.

In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others—a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.


It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.

But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance once again—beset by newly emerging threats from every direction.

In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has three times three thousand enemies, and many have set out to find her.Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. In the following chapter, those two songs will be analyzed in a more detailed way. The dead will dance here this night. Darkness, or light.

Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know.
