When and why do maps first appear in fictional works? How do maps condition the readers of literature? Focusing on early modern Europe, this presentation by Roger Chartier (Annenberg Visiting Professor in History and Professor at the Collège de France) and John Pollack (Kislak Center) will move from maps showing the journeys of Don Quixote through Spain, to maps of Gulliver’s Travels, to early printed works maps of imaginary and allegorical worlds.
