Overview

Narratives of the European Border examines the representation of shifting European borders in twentieth-century narrative. A work of literary geography, the book draws together an unusual grouping of texts from different national canons, comparing how fictional settings transmute European placelessness into narrative.

The book concentrates on border transformations in interwar narratives, and also considers more recent responses to the post-Cold War map.
