Mrs Coulter's Dæmon

Postby silverbeard » Tue Apr 10, 2007 11:54 am

Mrs C's Dæmon is called Ozymandias in the radio production. Just thought I would point it out.

//edit:

What? He is?

Finaly someone who understands my agony! I've been trying to figure out what Mrs. Coulters Dæmon name was, but it was never mentioned.

Thanks, your my hero!

It's only the name in the BBC adaption. I think PP has stated (can't remember where) that it's not his name in the book, and he doesn't like the name Ozymandis.

The name is never mentioned in the book.

"I didn't choose that name and to be frank I don't think I would have done. I imagine that the scriptwriter did get it from Shelley's poem, but you'd really have to ask her why she went for that name." Did you mean that?

I - too - don't like the name "Ozymandis".

Behold the whole story on the name. I don't think anyone considers that to be his name. He's just "the golden monkey."

PP has said that he didn't name Mrs Coulter's Dæmon because everytime he tried to think of one, The Golden monkey snarled and frightened him, he also said that's why the monkey rarely speaks, in fact I beleive he has only one line in the whole trilogy, (in the english version anyway).

Yeah. That monkey is straight up creepin'! I almost forget that it's even a Dæmon and that it's part of Mrs. Coulter. I usually just think of the monkey as being an entirely different character.

Yeah, I agree, and I think Pullman probably did that on purpose.

In the fan-conducted 2001 Readerville interview Pullman explained:

"The golden monkey doesn't have a name because every time I tried to think of one, he snarled and frightened me. What's more he hardly speaks either."

The January 2003 BBC 4 radio dramatisation named the golden monkey "Ozymandias" to allow better narrative translation for radio broadcasting. The name likely comes from a poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley and appears in the sonnet:

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"

The name has never been officially recognized by Pullman, who responded:

"I didn't choose that name and to be frank I don't think I would have done. I imagine that the scriptwriter did get it from Shelley's poem, but you'd really have to ask her why she went for that name."
“Books which satisfy us and feed us and nourish us have to have this substratum of genuine truth in them, ... And I don't see much of that in most fantasy.”

I actually like that name and consider it the Golden Monkey's name until I shall be told otherwise by Pullman himself!
"...And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!"

It's so wierd how the golden monkey's feelings toward Lyra are so different from MC's. It's like when Will first realized that the "sweet faced" MC and the golden monkey are one. I would be pretty shocked myself

Maybe because mrs coulters Dæmon wanted her to keep focussed on gaining more power?

No, I think that he loved Lyra as much as Mrs Coulter, he just showed more of her cruel side because just was basicaly it, the only things that she loves are Lyra and Asriel. I also think that he just didn't want Mrs Coulter to keep Lyra in the cave because he didn't like to see her like that...
