Literary Cartographies free pdf Literary Cartographies: Spatiality, Representation, and Narrative addresses key aspects of narrative mapping while arguing for the significance of spatiality in 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. Drawing upon the resources of spatiality studies and comparative literature, this collection of essays explores the ways authors use both strictly mimetic and more fantastic means to figure forth the 'real-and-imagined' spaces of their respective worlds. Examining diverse texts and spaces, the contributors to Literary Cartographies demonstrate how a variety of romantic, realist, modernist, and postmodernist narratives represent the changing social spaces of their world, and of our own world system today.
