The book is a collection of essays on George R. R. Martin's ”A Song of Ice and Fire” by Polish, American and Indian scholars who mostly specialise in medieval studies. Its main aim is to trace the indebtedness of George R. R. Martin's fantasy saga to the medieval literary heritage. Individual studies deal with Matin's appropriation of medieval narrative techniques and other considerations pertaining to the literary aesthetics of the period, as well as the interplay between the medieval cultural legacy and the postmodern context.

Keywords: George R. R. Martin, “A Song of Ice and Fire”, fantasy saga, middle ages, medieval literature, medieval culture, medieval motifs.

Bartłomiej Błaszkiewicz (born 1972) – graduated in 1996 from Lublin’s M. Curie-Skłodowska University with an MA degree in English. He received his PhD from the University of Warsaw in 2000. Since then he has been teaching at Warsaw University’s Institute of English Studies. His main academic interests are: Medieval and Renaissance English literature, the poetics and cultural context of oral literature, the folk and literary ballad, modern poetry, the reflection of literature’s historical and cultural background, especially the function of time and space in poetic imagery, scansion and metre, literature and music, science fiction and fantasy.

He is the author of over twenty academic publications, which include studies of Geoffrey Chaucer, Christopher Marlowe, John Milton, J. R. R. Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Bob Dylan and Neil Young.
