George RR Martin: «Les gens connaissent la fin de Game of Thrones – mais pas la fin»

By | 01/25/2020

George RR Martin a de nouveau exprimé ses intentions pour les deux derniers livres – Les Vents d'Hiver, et un rêve de printemps – dans son Chant de glace et de feu séries.

L'auteur, qui a abordé à plusieurs reprises le contrecoup de la dernière saison de la série à succès HBO, dit que la fin de la télévision n'est certainement pas l'histoire complète.

"Les gens connaissent une fin, mais pas la fin", a-t-il déclaré au journal allemand. Trépointe, selon Écuyer. «Les créateurs de l'émission de télévision m'avaient dépassé, ce à quoi je ne m'attendais pas.»

Il a apparemment commenté que la saison huit n'était "pas complètement fidèle" à sa vision de la série, bien que certaines stars de la série aient déjà suggéré le contraire.

“I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget,” Martin said. “They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3,000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them.

“And, of course, the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not a Blog will know that I’ve been talking about that since season one,” he continued.

“There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. Et oui, il y aura des licornes… en quelque sorte… »

Martin also addressed the pressure he felt to finish the books as the HBO series surpassed his place in the story.

“Every day I sat down to write and even if I had a good day – and a good day for me is three or four pages – I'd feel terrible because I'd be thinking: 'My God, I have to finish the book. I've only written four pages when I should have written 40,’” he said. “But having the show finish is freeing, because I'm at my own pace now. I have good days and I have bad days and the stress is far less, although it's still there.”

L'année dernière, Martin wrote a post on his blog addressing speculation about which direction the books would take.

«Comment ça va finir? I hear people asking,” he wrote. «La même fin que le spectacle? Différent? Hé bien oui. Et non. Et oui. Et non. Et oui. Et non. And yes.”.

“I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them.”

“Book or show, which will be the ‘real’ ending?” he continued. “It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have?” he said, referencing the heroine of Gone with the Wind.

“How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet.”
