Abstract
A Song of Ice and Fire is a saga written by George R.R. Martin and was made famous when it was adopted into a HBO show titled as the first book in the series, Game of Thrones. Given its popularity and worldwide recognition, it is a wonder that so few scholarly studies have been done on the novel and so this paper will attempt to rectify that. This paper focuses on the female characters because of their importance to the plot but also because they point out George R.R. Martin’s contribution to the genre of high fantasy. These female characters differ greatly from the female characters in previous works of high fantasy, if only in being more human than just fitting into molds of supporting roles, as was done with female characters in high fantasy thus far. This paper will analyze each of the major female characters present in A Game of Thrones and then a conclusion will be drawn based on the analysis done in the preceding chapters.
