Literary Geography provides a valuable introduction to the field, making work in cultural geography more accessible and visible to students and academics working in literary studies. Acknowledging how the cultural turn in human geography and the spatial turn in literary studies are together reinvigorating the interdisciplinary field of literary geography, this volume:

  • provides an introductory overview of cultural geography as a subfield in human geography
  • introduces literary geography and discusses its connections with spatial theory, literary studies and the humanities
  • reviews key works on literature, space, and geography across the range of literary genres, and the significance for cultural geography of post-structuralism, postmodernism, postcolonialism, geopolitics and positionality
  • incorporates a wealth of examples of work on literature, space and place from geography and literary studies
  • outlines ways in which collaborations between cultural geography and literary studies could lead to new initiatives in interdisciplinary literary geography

Accessible and clear, this comprehensive overview is the essential guide for those coming to the topic for the first time, those taking courses in literary and cultural theory and in cultural geography, and those interested in literary genres such as travel writing and postcolonial fiction.
