Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This is a very well considered essay collection that includes some experienced and highly able scholars. The essays in the volume are original, cross-cultural in content, and make a valuable contribution to the burgeoning field of geographies in literature.' Linda Dryden, Reader in Literature and Culture, Napier University, UK

'This in-depth and carefully argued collection of essays...has a strong cross-cultural premise that emphasizes the significant ways in which the experience and depiction of space and place in modernist and postcolonial literary texts overlap.'

- Susan Smit-Marais, PYP Online
