A Critique of a Poisoning in Literature: A Song of Ice and Fire’s Purple Wedding.
An analysis of Joffrey Baratheon’s poisoning in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire: the chemical compound used, its effects, method of application and onset in comparison to a hypothetical real-life counterpart: strychnine, and the author’s justifications for suggesting this equivalent. Posting for those who said they were interested, a piece of coursework I wrote for a pharmacology poisons module / the university’s English literature department. I wrote this in the first year of my degree ( 2+ years ago now! ) so don’t expect a lot from my writing/analytical skills !!!
