Summary

Chapter Two contextualises the fictional map itself by aligning early examples to the history of cartography, centred on major turning points and correspondence (or non-correspondence) between real-world developments and works of literature. It begins with medieval maps as relational networks; explores the influence of Utopia as the earliest ‘literary’ map; analyses the mapping of the New World in relation to Defoe and Swift; before considering the effects of the Ordnance Survey and maps of Empire on the mapping of fictional place and space.
