The Fictional North PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Fictional North free pdf Western culture may have enshrined North as a touchstone by which all other directions are defined, but the North is not one but a number of Netherlands- like all frontiers, the North is, in its essence, imaginative, magicked out of ice and snow, muskeg and tundra. Storytelling is its generative principle, the activity through which the North and Northerners call themselves into being. In essays on topics ranging from the Aboriginal justice system in Canada to the search for the Northwest Passage to the cultural paradigms of medieval Iceland, "The Fictional North" examines iconic images of the North, the relationship of North to South, and ethnographic and fictional models of "Northerness".
