The anticipated follow-up to the book lovers'' favorite,Literary Wonderlands, LITERARY LANDSCAPES delves deep into the geography, location, and terrain of our best-loved literary works and looks at how setting and environmental attributes influence storytelling, character, and our emotional response as readers. Fully illustrated with hundreds of full-color images throughout.
Some stories couldn''t happen just anywhere. As is the case with all great literature, the setting, scenery, and landscape are as central to the tale as any character, and just as easily recognized. LITERARY LANDSCAPES brings together more than 50 literary worlds and examines how their description is intrinsic to the stories that unfold within their borders.
Follow Leopold Bloom''s footsteps around Dublin. Hear the music of the Mississippi River steamboats that set the score forHuckleberry Finn. Experience the rugged bleakness of New Foundland in Annie Proulx''sThe Shipping Newsor the soft Neapolitan breezes inMy Brilliant Friend.
The landscapes of enduring fictional characters and literary legends are vividly brought to life, evoking all the sights and sounds of the original works. LITERARY LANDSCAPES will transport you to the fictions greatest lands and allow you to connect to the story and the author''s intent in a whole new way.
