Oh to be a student again!
News today that Western University is offering a course strictly on the novels of George R. R. Martin. He wrote the series of fantasy novels, A Song of ice and Fire, that are the basis of the hit television drama A Game of Thrones.
“‘Winter is Coming’: A Game of Thrones will be a serious study of the first four volumes of Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series,” Western’s blog states.
The professor, John Leonard, may, at first look, be an unlikely match for the course: he specializes in the poetry of John Milton. However, he says he discovered Milton after becoming an avid fan of Lord of the Rings, so perhaps the fantasy connection is less obscure than we might think.
