Hello! I recently read ASOIAF again and I'vd noticed how much of an outcast Sansa actually is. Obviously we lack a lot of information of their past, but it seems to me that Sansa (as the Lady of Winferfell and oldest daughter) was deliberately seperated and raised as a "proper Lady" in comparison to her siblings (Robb seems to be close to everyone). I also read Hamlet recently and noticed a lot of similarities between Ophelia and Sansa. Do you think that Sansa was based off of Ophelia to some degree?
Hi anon!
Sansa does seem isolated from her siblings to an extend, though some of that may be exaggerated through POV sequence (viewed from Arya's perspective) and timing (we only get her POV once she actually is isolated on the road to Kingslanding). She expresses disappointment that her sister doesn't share any of her interests, because "normally" Arya would have been raised right alongside her older sister to be a proper lady - she simply tried to wriggle out of it constantly to enter the world of the boys - and literally everywhere else in the castle, as "Arya Underfoot". Sansa considers Jeyne Poole her closest friend, partially as a replacement of her "unsatisfactory" sister.
On the subject of Shakespeare and Ophelia, I'd say that not only is GRRM a Shakespeare fan (and sprinkles references to his works into the books), but there is also a direct line to GRRM's aesthetic attraction to the 19th century romanticism and preoccupation with an idealised medieval imagery, which in turn translates to one of the most famous depictions of Ophelia being from the pre-Raphaelite movement. If you get Ophelia vibes, it's not an accident, but it may be related to a general aesthetic as much as it may be a direct reference. A lot of that romanticism and the medieval origins of "romance" is expressed through Sansa. There are a number of lovely posts examining this in much more depth. I'd point you to the meta masterlist by @cappymightwrite and to this wonderful post by @butterflies-dragons and another one specifically about the influence of Ivanhoe. (Wait, where is YOUR masterlist? I thought you had one?) as well as the meta masterlist by @fedonciadale who also examines historical and literary influences. Then there is also the wonderful @that-plo-koon who is a big Shakespeare nerd fan. Doubtlessly, I am once again forgetting seminal works of meta and influential posts, so if anyone else has something to add here, I would be immensely grateful!
