Tyrion Lannister may not be exactly a “loser”, in Eco’s perspective but he surely is a character the Professore would praise as a literary character. He is not a physical demi-god but his intelligence largely overcomes is not-so-perfect look.
This little quotation book enhancing the main personality traits of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire protagonist may be an excellent choice either to laugh with family and friends around a table in the new year’s eve, or to inspire a choice to carry on the mood for the days to come, with Tyrion’s resilience which is a combination of stoicism, scepticism, a total absence of puritanism, and a special sympathy to the weakest. This makes Tyrion both amoral and human creature at the same time and probably the most complete of Martin’s characters.
The Witt and Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister is a selection of the most charismatic sentences proffered by the character Martin‘s saga and beautifully illustrated by Jonty Clark, which transforms this book into an object of art.
Tyrion’s main features are exposed in twelve sections that construct the essence of his own self in a small volume that can be read during a quick trip in the tube between Notting Hill and Liverpool Street. Enjoy!
