Some stories couldn´t happen just anywhere or any time - often the scenery , landscape or era is as central to the tale as any character - and just as easily recognised. Wh at adventures would Heidi have had without her mountain neighbours? W ould Jim Hawkins have experienced such an adventure had he not lived in mid - 1700s England? Literary Landscapes brings together an eclectic collage of over 50 familiar literary worlds paired with original maps and archive material, as well as illustrations and photography. In this collection of essays the reader will follow Leopold Bl oom´s footsteps around Dublin, become immerse d in Les Mis e rable´s revolutionary Paris, feel the chill wind of Emily Bronte´s Wuthering Heights, and hear the churning paddles of Mississippi steamboats in Mark Twain´s Huckleberry Finn. The landscapes of enduring fictional characters and literary legends are vividly brought to life, evoking all the sights and sounds of the original works. For anyone wh o ever dreamt of escaping the everyday, Literary Landscapes will transport you to the greatest places in literature.
