Gotributor Francesca Lewis: Game of Thrones From An Existential Perspective | Albert Camus’ The Stranger

July 18, 2019

Welcome Francesca Lewis to the Got Academy Podcast to talk to Gil Kidron as part of Got Academy Gotributor special offer! Francesca has studied creative writing, psychology and existentialism, and she applies the latter to the conclusion of Game of Thrones, being that the only reason Bran Stark becomes king is that the meaning we ascribe to his story are the most meaningful, at least according to Tyrion. Through existentialism, or absurdism, as Albert Camus' outlook on life is referred to, in his books The Stranger and The Myth of Sisyphus, we try to find if there is any meaning to Game of Thrones from our perspective, and from that of the characters.
