Summary

Chapter Eight seeks to approach the intangible subject of the cognitive map for literature from a number of overlapping directions which all point towards a particular model for readerly mapping. Approaching the subject through reader-response theory, ancient models of memory-mapping, and cognitive map theory, the chapter defines a doubled (combined) model of mapping for literary space and place. The book concludes by considering ways forward for the mapping of literature in and through the digital medium in the light of this cognitive model. (83)
