Page and Place: Ongoing Compositions of Plot and Literary Geographies: Narrative Space in ‘Let The Great World Spin’

With Page and Place: Ongoing Compositions of Plot and Literary Geographies: Narrative Space in ‘Let The Great World Spin’, Jon Anderson and Sheila Hones contribute to the (re)emerging interdisciplinary field of literary geography. Hones analyses her single case study, Colum McCann’s novel Let The Great World Spin, as a practical example of an interdisciplinary performance, while Anderson walks across Wales reading the entanglements of several authors’ literary pages with real places. Both contributions share, promote and even perform theoretical and methodological exchanges between literature and geography. Looking at cultural geography and spatial theory on the one hand and at literary criticism and narrative theory on the other, Page and Place and Literary Geographies respond to the need for actual ‘cross-border thinking’ (Hones, 2008, p. 1311). In fact, the analyses of the case studies offer significant examples of a truly interdisciplinary academic practice.
