Mapping absence: Maps as meta-artistic discourse in literature
2012 (English)In: Visualizing Law and Authority: Essays on Legal Aesthetics / [ed] Leif Dahlberg, Berlin: Walter de Gruyter, 2012, 114-125 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The essay analyses fictional maps as intertextual and metafictional figures in literature by examining Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark and Tove Jansson’s novel Moominpappa and the Sea. Both stories include fictive maps that connect to cartographic traditions in different ways, but most importantly are used as symbols for adventure, power and control – or the lack of all above.
