Summary
"The contributors to Literary Cartographies: Spatiality, Representation, and Narrative each address key aspects of narrative mapping while arguing for the significance of spatiality in general and comparative literary studies. Literary Cartographies surveys a broad expanse of literary historical territories, including romance and realism, modernism and imperialism, and the postmodern play of spaces in the era of globalization. As such, this collection also provides a representative sample of work being done in this area by spatially oriented critics across a range of periods, languages, and literatures"--
