Medievalism in A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of ThronesBOOK COVER: Medievalism in a Song of Ice or Fire or Game of Thrones
Shiloh Carroll

One of the biggest attractions of George R.R. Martin’s high fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, and by extension its HBO television adaptation, Game of Thrones, is its claim to historical realism. The author, the directors and producers of the adaptation, and indeed the fans of the books and show, all lay claim to Westeros, its setting, as representative of an authentic medieval world. But how true are these claims? Is it possible to faithfully represent a time so far removed from our own in time and culture? This book explores Martin’s and HBO’s approaches to and beliefs about the Middle Ages and how those beliefs fall into traditional medievalist and fantastic literary patterns.

Derek Jarman’s Medieval ModernBOOK COVER: Derek Jarman's Medieval Modern
Robert Mills

The artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman (1942-1994) had a lifelong appreciation of medieval culture. But with the possible exception of Edward II, Jarman’s films have not been identified to date as making a major contribution to medieval cinema. This book is the first to uncover a rich seam of medievalism in Jarman’s art. Taking in major features such asCaravaggio, The Garden and The Last of England, as well as some of the unrealised screenplays and short experimental films, the book proposes an expanded definition of medieval film that includes not just works set in or about the Middle Ages, but also projects inspired more broadly by the period.

Translating Early Medieval PoetryBOOK COVER: Translating Early Medieval Poetry
Transformation, Reception, Interpretation
Edited by Tom Birkett & Kirsty March-LyonsThe first decades of the twenty-first century have seen an unprecedented level of creative engagement with early medieval literature, ranging from the long-awaited publication of Tolkien’s version of Beowulf and the reworking of medieval lyrics by Ireland’s foremost poets to the adaptation of Eddic and Skaldic poetry for the screen. This collection brings together scholars and accomplished translators working with Old English, Old Norse and Medieval Irish poetry, to take stock of this extraordinary proliferation of translation activity and to suggest new ways in which to approach these three dynamic literary traditions.

Medievalism, Politics and Mass MediaBOOK COVER: Medievalism, Politics and Mass Media
Appropriating the Middle Ages in the Twenty-First Century

Andrew B.R. Elliott

Many current events, such as George Bush’s reference to the War on Terror as a “Crusade”, are couched in loaded medieval terms. This book analyses how such metaphors work, questioning the effect such medieval terminology can have on a mass-mediated audience and upon an understanding of the Middle Ages in general.
