The Tolkienic Song of Ice and Fire

by Bluetiger


A series that explores how works of J.R.R. Tolkien have influenced George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire


List of Episodes

The Tolkienic Song of Ice and Fire Main Series

The Tolkienic Song of Ice and Fire, Episode I – Part One of this instalment discusses GRRM’s approach to Tolkien, Part Two explores numerous references to LOTR and other JRRT works in ASOIAF, Part Three focuses on my theory about Numenor and the Great Empire of the Dawn

The Tolkienic Song of Ice and Fire, Episode II – in Part One (The Cosmology of Arda) I discuss how Tolkien’s astronomical myths might have inspired GRRM’s legends (like the Qartheen tale about the second moon of Planetos), and explain how ASOIAF Long Night might be a reference to The Long Night of Valinor from The Silmarillion. In Part Two (The Family of Ice and Fire) I explore the fire and ice dichotomy in the Royal House of the Noldor banches, and how it might have inspired GRRM’s ‘solar king with two lunar wives’ symbolic pattern. In Part Three (The Song of the Sun and the Moon) I explain how Tolkien’s symbolism based on Venus works, and how it might have influenced GRRM’s own symbolism and wordlbuilding. My GEOTD-Numenor theory is also discussed, with some new supporting evidence given.
