In these first few days of my ZIP project I have come up with a few ideas for additional questions that I would like to explore throughout the project. The most important one concerns characters and character development. Characters are very important in texts, but they are especially important in A Game of Thrones. A Game of Thrones is built upon the interactions between a large variety of characters. And before I began reading it, I didn’t realize that the characters would be so important. My inquiry question is “How does adapting a narrative for television change its meaning.” I feel that this question doesn’t focus on characters enough. However, focusing on characters may distract me from my original goals of examining the meanings and the messages portrayed in different texts. However, I do think it’s important to address this somewhat in my final presentation.
