|Sex, Violence and Early British Literature! |
In this talk, SSU professor of English Brantley Bryant will explore the connections between the TV drama "Game of Thrones" and medieval England.
Not just the story's setting, but its characters, ideas, and plot all have their roots in the poetry and politics of distant centuries. Learn how literary classics like Chaucer and Beowulf are more like the TV show than you might think, and how the struggles of British kings still make for must-see TV.
Free and open to all!
