"Although there are numerous walking and climbing guides there is -astonishingly - no comprehensive guide to the numerous literary connections of the Lake District. Grevel Lindop has filled that gap, steering us through all the Lakeland places, famous and unknown, from the Wordworths' Dove Cottage to Blea Tarn, subject of Auden's first poem, from Beatrix Potter's Sawrey to the site of Mervyn Bragg's MAID OF BUTTERMERE. Effortless scholarship, easy wit and a real love of the Lakes make this a delightful book, also an immensley practical one, following the main routes through the Lakes with the help of maps and local plans, and illustrated with integrated period engravings and line drawings by well known artists, including Beatrix Potter. The book is beautifully designed, with different sections for the five major routes throught the Lake District. Car parks sre indicated, directions are clearly given, as are details and opening times of all sites open to the public."

Do we map as we read? How central to our experience of literature is the way in which we spatialise and visualise a fictional world? Reading and Mapping Fiction offers a fresh approach to the interpretation of literary space and place centred upon the emergence of a fictional map alongside the text in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Bringing together a range of new and emerging theories, including cognitive mapping and critical cartography, Bushell compellingly argues that this activity, whatever it is called – mapping, diagramming, visualising, spatialising – is a vital and intrinsic part of how we experience literature, and of what makes it so powerful. Drawing on both the theory and history of literature and cartography, this richly illustrated study opens up understanding of spatial meaning and interpretation in new ways that are relevant to both more traditional academic scholarship and to newly emerging digital practices.
