Présentation de l'éditeur :

A groundbreaking study in literary geography. An Atlas of the European Novel 1800-1900 explores the fascinating connections between literature and space. In this pioneering study, Franco Moretti presents a fresh and exciting perspective en the European novel. In a series of one hundred maps, Moretti illuminates the geographical assumptions of nineteenth-century novels and the geographical reach of particular authors and genres across the continent. A good map, he discovers, can be worth a thousand words in posing new questions and allowing us to see connections that have so tar escaped us. Reading his Atlas, we become aware of the secret structure of Dickens’s and Conan Doyle’s London, and see how the fictional settings of Austen’s Britain, or picaresque Spain, or the France of the Comedie humaine imagine national identity in different ways. In a final chapter on “narrative markets,” Moretti tells us which books were most popular in the provincial libraries of Victorian Britain, and charts the European diffusion of Don Quixote, Buddenbrooks, and the great nineteenth-century bestsellers. In Franco Moretti’s Atlas, maps are net ornaments, but analytical tools which, in making connections explicit and visible, allow us to ‘see’ literature in a completely new way. This path-breaking study suggests that space may well be the secret protagonist of cultural history.

Revue de presse :

“With intellectual elegance, Moretti invites us to use maps, not as all-encompassing solutions, but as generators of ideas.”—Umberto Eco

“Moretti ... is a seductive, stylish guide. One has the powerful sense of reading the results of concentrated thought: every page contains an aphoristic insight ... The reader is smuggled across borders that flash by in the dark ... The Atlas of the European Novel is a wonderful achievement: a visual pleasure as much as a textual one; a work in the vanguard of a new critical school that marries grand theory with a punctuating wit.”—Steven Poole, The Guardian

“A genuine and useful and inspired work of aesthetic investigation ... it will have a massive importance, not only to critics, but more importantly, to writers.”— New York Press

“. . . a frequently brilliant and almost always eye-opening book.”— Washington City Paper
