Book Description

Literary Geography provides an introduction to work in the field, making the interdiscipline accessible and visible to students and academics working in literary studies and human geography, as well as related fields such as the geohumanities, place writing and geopoetics.

Emphasising the long tradition of work with literary texts in human geography, this volume:

  • provides an overview of literary geography as an interdiscipline, which combines aims and methods from human geography and literary studies
  • explains how and why literary geography differs from spatially-oriented critical approaches in literary studies
  • reviews geographical work with literary texts from the late 19th century to the present day
  • includes a glossary of key terms and concepts employed in contemporary literary geography.

Accessible and clear, this comprehensive overview is an essential guide for anyone interested in learning more about the history, current activity and future of work in the interdiscipline of literary geography.
