‘Game of Poems’: for all the 67 episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ is a poem
TV The three Dutch poets Ellen Deckwitz, Ingmar Heytze and Thomas Möhlmann joined forces to for all 67 episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ to write a poem. The collection, aptly ‘Game of Poems’ entitled, is now available.

“The idea came from Ellen Deckwitz, in season 5," says Ingmar Heytze to VRT NWS. Together with Thomas Möhlmann wrote per episode a online poem. Someone started and sent his text and then to the others, which is the further adjusted. “We went through with it until the seasons were, and then we herbegonnen at the beginning.”

“Actually, are you looking for as a poet, the parenthesis in an episode: an image, a character, a shocking event – there are quite a lot of it in ‘Game of Thrones’. That will leave you on our world collide, and where you as a poet are doing. Hopefully add you as a poet, an extra layer to the episode,” says Heytze. “In the best case - but I'm not sure - are the poems that you can read without that you have any idea where ‘Game of Thrones’ is about.” Also the themes that the popular series will lend themselves perfectly for a poem, tells Heytze. “All that old testament, all that Shakespearean, all the really big stories of the world are there: love, betrayal, lots of betrayal.”

Happy ending

In contrast to the rather dark atmosphere of the last seven seasons, is expected Heytze that ‘Game of Thrones’ on a happy note will end. “I expect a stable, happy end. They can us after all that time not to bother with a totally corrupt ruler. Now there is yet a kind of enlightened despotism or socialism. I expect that John and Daenerys together as a wise king and queen have a long and happy life, the rich rule and the White Walkers defeat. That is a sprookjeseinde where I was at in the hope, rather against the cliffs and against the logical expectation. I would find it hard if the bad ends.”

They hope that the series has a happy ending, but the three poets expect, in any case, not that they themselves are in trouble because they their poems on the series based. “This falls under ‘fan fiction’ and we don't think we need to secure the consent of the creators. We hope however that they get to see. That they are smiling with a strange blue booklet from the Netherlands, that they can't read. We send it on.”
