Jump to: navigation, search

Chapters of A Song of Ice and Fire are presented through different POV characters. Point of view is the way a story is written, determining through whose perspective the story is told.

George R. R. Martin strictly adheres to third-person narration. In each chapter the reader is presented with the thoughts and desires of one particular character, experiencing most of what he sees and hears, what he knows and remembers from the past, but not the thoughts of other characters and events occurring outside of his sight. Through the story we encounter number of POV's thus obtaining a multi-faceted view of the story.
