Piece of Heart: Acts of Communion

Link-drinking-Milk-the-legend-of-zelda-32705249-1024-738-3500Welcome to Piece of Heart, where we look at The Legend of Zelda series through the eyes of a literary professor and examine how the literary elements found in the games enhance the overall experience. Literature is a beating heart that pumps its influence into even the furthest reaches of this celestial body, and each literary example that exists in The Legend of Zelda is a piece of that heart. Every two weeks we’ll cover a different chapter of Thomas C. Foster’s How to Read Literature Like a Professor and examine what components of the lesson appear throughout the Zelda series.

This week’s lesson is titled “Nice to Eat with You: Acts of Communion” and states that the act of sharing a meal with someone is often written intentionally to show emotional development between characters. The way the food is eaten and the type of food affect the meal’s purpose, just as breaking bread signifies peace. Whatever the situation, a communion has the literary implication of: a coming together, of sharing, of uniting under a common trait, of getting along, and of disunity when used ironically.

Link Drawn in… What?

Crayon Link 2 There are many different mediums of art; digital, pencil, pen, watercolor, and very rarely crayons. When people think crayons, they tend to think of a messy coloring job done by a young child. Recently however, a wonderful drawing of Twilight Princess Link got a lot of attention. Why? Because it was drawn entirely with crayons! Reddit and Imgur user Dweebette is a completely self taught artist. When she posted her art on the /r/Zelda forum, I don’t think that many people expected to see this.

Zelda Theory: Skyloft = City in the Sky? [GAME SPECULATION]

SkyloftWhen Skyloft was introduced in Skyward Sword there was some speculation about whether or not Skyloft ended up becoming the City in the Sky which acts as the final dungeon in Twilight Princess. At first glance they seem like completely different places and the only reason the connection has been made is because they both hover in the sky. However, YouTube channel wwwwario has taken a closer look and there’s more to connect them than you might expect.

Gossip Stone: Is there a place for the Slingshot alongside the Bow?

SS SlingshotOne of the recurring items in the Zelda series is the Slingshot: a handheld device Link often obtains early in the games it is in. Unfortunately for every game it appears in, it’s typically obtained before the Bow; the Bow greatly outshines the Slingshot with improved range, damage and projectiles it could carry. Is there a place for the Slingshot alongside the bow, or is it an outdated piece of equipment that should be retired in favor of the bow? Read more after the break!

A Look Back at Introductions in Zelda

Intros in Zelda PicAs a longtime fan of the Zelda franchise, I have played through my fair share of Zelda introductions. Some have worked extraordinarily well, throwing you directly into the action while allowing you to learn the ropes. Others haven’t been as successful. I won’t look at each and every introduction to a Zelda game; instead, I will only look at opening acts that I feel are different enough (either in structure or quality) from others in the series to merit a mention.
