An unprecedented compilation of critical and creative essays and visual texts from leading international scholars, Unfolding Irish landscapes presents cross-disciplinary studies of the prose, cartography, visual art and cultural legacy of the award-winning work of cartographer and writer Tim Robinson. This book explores the process in which Robinson has addressed the historical and geographical tensions that suffuse the landscapes of Ireland. Robinson's distinctive methods of map-making and topographical writing capture the geographical and cultural consciousness of not only Ireland, but also of the entire North Atlantic archipelago. Through both topographic prose and cartography Robinson undertakes one of the greatest explorations of the Irish landscape by a single person in recent history, paralleling, if not surpassing, Robert Lloyd Praeger's extensive catalogue of writings and natural histories of western Ireland.

Review:


"Robinson comes across not only as a brilliant storyteller and interpreter of the landscape but also as intensely human. Thus, the contributors to Unfolding Irish Landscapes mirror Robinson's own practice: just as he unfolds the Irish landscape, revealing its history to his readers, so, too, do these scholars reveal Robinson to us."
Leila Crawford, University of Otago, Irish Studies Review, Issue 24.4, November 2016


"The volume is an impressive, ambitious and timely endeavor to chart the depth and range of the career of one of the most influential and original figures in the field of Irish Studies and the philosophy of landscape." - Anne Karhio, National University of Ireland, Nordic Irish Studies

Book Description Manchester University Press. Hardcover. Condition: New. 278 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.7in.Unfolding Irish landscapes offers a comprehensive and sustained cross-disciplinary study of the work of cartographer, landscape writer and visual artist Tim Robinson. Robinsons work continues to garner significant attention not only in Ireland, but also in the United Kingdom, Europe and North America, particularly with the recent celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of his monumental Stones of Aran: pilgrimage. In The Guardian, Robert Macfarlane has described Robinsons work in Ireland as one of the most sustained, intensive and imaginative studies of a landscape that has ever been carried out. It is difficult to separate Robinson the figure from his work and the places he surveys in Ireland - they are intertextual and interconnected. This volume explores some of these characteristics for both general and expert readers alike. The multi-genre essays and visual texts of this collection explore Robinsons writing, map-making and art. The individual studies demonstrate disciplinary expertise; as parts of a cohesive project they form a collective overview of the imaginative sensibility and artistic dexterity of Robinsons cultural and geographical achievements in Ireland. By navigating Robinsons method of ambulation through his prose and visual creations this book examines topics ranging from the politics of cartography and map-making as visual art forms to the cultural and environmental dimensions of writing about landscapes. The collection draws from the expertise of international scholars in fields of Irish studies, geography, environmental studies, literature and visual culture, with contributors including Patrick Duffy, John Elder, Moya Cannon, Gerry Smyth and Moynagh Sullivan. Unfolding Irish landscapes will be an essential companion not only for students and lecturers in Irish studies and environmental humanities but also for the general reader seeking a deeper understanding of Irelands geography and culture.
