Piece of Heart: It’s Baptism… or Drowning

maxresdefault Welcome to the seventh installment of Piece of Heart, where we look at The Legend of Zelda series through the eyes of a literary professor and examine how its literary elements enhance the gaming experience.

What makes it confusing is not only the complexity of the Zelda games, but also that they’re never released in any sort of sequential order, so it was solely up to the fans to speculate the potential timeline.
