Setting and It's
Importance Quote I liked and Why. Literary/Stylistic Device Fiction Text Evidence Why did the author use
this device? Mood While Reading What caused the mood? "You are in difficulty," "He will not come," "There is a reason. A dragon is no slave." "Drogon,"
"Dracarys." [...] Kraznys she observed she sang loudly, sweetly, all her fear forgotten. George RR Martin uses repetition during
the the fight between Oberyn Martell and Ser Gregor Clegane. “You raped her.” Prince Oberyn parried a savage cut with his spearhead. “You murdered her.” He sent the spearpoint at Clegane’s eyes, so fast the huge man flinched back. “You killed her children.” The spear flickered sideways and down, scraping against the Mountain’s breastplate. “You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children.” The spear was two feet longer than Ser Gregor’s sword, more than enough to keep him at an awkward distance. He hacked at the shaft whenever Oberyn lunged at him, trying to lop off the spearhead, but he might as well have been trying to hack the wings off a fly. “You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children.” Gregor tried to bull rush, but Oberyn skipped aside and circled round his back. “You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children. Part of the reason the fight is so powerful is because "You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children" is repeated so often. The audience never forgets why Prince Oberyn is fighting and it makes the scene so much more emotional. I experienced several different emotions throughout the course of the book, such as sadness, horror, and amusement, but I mostly felt excited. "Three," he squeaked to Chett, "that was three, I heard three. They never blow three. Not for hundreds and thousands of years. Three means-" "-Others." I like this quote because it shows how far Dany has come, compared to the quiet demure girl in AGOT. The End! Thank you for your time. ASOIAF takes place in mainly Westeros, a fictional island reminiscent of medieval times, with magic. The setting is very important because of the lack of technology makes thing like communication and travel very difficult presenting obstacles for the characters.
