📙 The Plausible World: A Geocritical Approach to Space, Place, and Maps by Bertrand Westphal (auth.) — pdf free


In The Plausible World , the intersections of literature and cartography enable readers to understand that place is anything but purely geographic: a plausible world is created as a strategy to fill the void. Innovative in his approach, Westphal challenges the view that perceptions and representations of space are stable or straightforward.
