The Tragedy of the Ghost of Sparta: The Myth Through the God of War Saga
A benchmark in the genre of hack and slash From the generation of PlayStation 2, this essay seeks to bring his story closer to analysis; from mythological and cultural references to what has led its protagonist, Kratos, to become a tragic hero with very different feelings. Not only does it talk about the extensive video game portfolio, but it also delves into the transmedia component of the license, a media franchise with a presence in video games, comics and novels.
Pain, blood and violence through God of War are some of the aspects that emerge from this volume, on sale next October 6, 2021 in bookstores and department stores.
