One hundred maps exposing the fascinating connections between literature and space.
In this pioneering study Franco Moretti presents a fresh and exciting perspective by mapping the often unexpected relations between literature and geography.


“With intellectual elegance, Moretti invites us to use maps, not as all-encompassing solutions, but as generators of ideas.”

“Moretti . . . is a seductive, stylish guide. One has the powerful sense of reading the results of concentrated thought: every page contains an aphoristic insight . . . The reader is smuggled across borders that flash by in the dark. . . . The Atlas of the European Novel is a wonderful achievement: a visual pleasure as much as a textual one; a work in the vanguard of a new critical school that marries grand theory with a punctuating wit.”

“A genuine and useful and inspired work of aesthetic investigation . . . it will have a massive importance, not only to critics, but more importantly, to writers.”

“. . . a frequently brilliant and almost always eye-opening book.”
