Place and Space


Many authors creating elaborate mythic or imagined words, especially in the genres of science fiction and fantasy. Examples include Middle Earth, Westeros, Hogwarts, Narnia, Neverland, Oz, the surreal world of Alice in Wonderland, the Marvel Universe, and the Star Wars Galaxy. Examining how authors construct fictional worlds or alternate realities can provide valuable insight into how place and space do not simply provide settings or backdrops, they influence narrative, shape character development, and, in so doing, they become actors in the stories. This bibliography collects a wide range of scholarly monographs that examine these ideas in depth.
