Game of Thrones has changed the landscape of television during an era hailed as the Golden Age of TV. An adaptation of George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy A Song of Fire and Ice, the HBO series has taken on a life of its own with original plotlines that advance past those of Martin's books.
The death of protagonist Ned Stark at the end of Season One launched a killing spree in television-major characters now die on popular shows weekly. While many shows kill off characters for pure shock value, death on Game of Thrones produces seismic shifts in power dynamics-and resurrected bodies that continue to fight. This collection of new essays explores how power, death, gender, and performance intertwine in the series.
