Maps and Memory in Early Modern England by Rhonda Lemke Sanford
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Dealing with the relationship between the places of England and depictions of places in maps and literature, "Maps and Memory" focuses on increasingly local terrain to show how understanding contemporary maps is useful to understanding literary works of the time. Spenser's "Faerie Queen", Shakespeare's "Cymbeline", Jonson's "To Peshurst", city comedy and other genres of literature of the city are examined alongside maps and contemporary documents about these areas. In this literature maps and mapping conventions are used in the service of memory and memorialization of the places of England and of England's place in the early modern world.
