Summary
"This book examines the ways in which 21 modern and postmodern writers have made use of the physical environment in their work. It considers how each author employs the physical settings in the plot and character development, and how those settings are used to connect with some of the intellectual concerns of the late 19th and 20th centuries"--Provided by publisher
