Prompted by Frye's classification of literary works the present paper embarks on an investigation of the ice motif and its manifestations in a mythological and literary context. It is based on a restricted corpus, yet the survey made proves the recurrent meaning of ice to be a symbol of death and its various other connotations -inherently associated with the primal meaning revealing it in different aspects in the works to be analyzed.
