Literature's Sensuous Geographies: Postcolonial Matters of Place (Geocriticism and Spatial Literary Studies) (Hardcover)
usually available in 3-7 days
Using place studies within a postcolonial context, this study explores the sense-aesthetic dimensions in literature such as smell, sound, etc. that often challenge the rationalizing logic of modernity. Through close readings of writers such as Conrad and Coetzee, Moslund invites scholars to shift focus from discourse analysis to aesthetic analysis.
