Product Description


""Geocritical Explorations" is the necessary companion volume to Bertrand Westphal's "Geocriticism," as well as a notable contribution in its own right to our understanding of the spatial turn in contemporary literary criticism. Taking Westphal's theorization of 'geocriticism' as their point of departure, the authors of the essays collected here offer provocative reflections on the theory and practice of putting 'place' at the center of our thinking about literature. Ranging across the cartography, ecology, insularity, frontiers, topography, and many other aspects of places on five different continents as figured in fiction and nonfiction, poetry and prose, the essays in this volume demonstrate that "place" is never a simple matter, just a neglected one. They teach us fruitful ways to attend to place in literature, and thereby to recover its role in the making of our world."--Ricardo Padron, associate professor, University of Virginia and author of "The Spacious Word: Cartography, Literature, and Empire in Early Modern Spain"

Book Description
