Space and literature: Ancient and modern methodological sensibilities

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Space and literature, literary theory, spatial turn, geocritics.

Analysing some structuralist and post-structuralist theoretical reflections, the essay tries to identify the elements of continuity with the past and of innovation in the present time of the debate subsequent the “spatial turnµ. In particular, it reserves specific attention to some qualities of the chronotope, theorized by Michail Bachtin, and to the more recent positions of Bertrand Westphal, concluding with a reflection on the role assumed by urban space, cartography and so-called non-lieu in current analytical practices.
