Synopsis

Spatiality has risen to become a key concept in literary and cultural studies, with critical focus on the 'spatial turn' presenting a new approach to the traditional literary analyses of time and history.

Robert T. Tally Jr. explores differing aspects of the spatial in literary studies today, providing:

  • An overview of the spatial turn across literary theory, from historicism and postmodernism to postcolonialism and globalization
  • Introductions to the major theorists of spatiality, including Michel Foucault, David Harvey, Edward Soja, Erich Auerbach, Georg Lukács, and Fredric Jameson
  • Analysis of critical perspectives on spatiality, such as the writer as map-maker, literature of the city and urban space, and the concepts of literary geography, cartographics and geocriticism.

This clear and engaging study presents readers with a thought provoking and illuminating guide to the literature and criticism of 'space'.
