Cyclopedia of Literary Places, Volume 1: Abraham and Isaac--the Glass Menagerie by R. Kent Rasmussen

The many functions of place in fiction, whether to drive a plot, inform an event, add dimension to character, or symbolize atmosphere, are the subject of this three-volume reference. The entries are organized alphabetically by title; works from the Bible through the 20th century are included. Each entry includes a short synopsis of the story followed by a list of the significant places in the work with a description of the role they played. The contributors teach English at universities in the US; some are independent scholars. An introductory essay and a key to pronunciation are included. Indexing is by title, author, and place.
