Dealing with the relationship between the places of England and depictions of those places in maps and literature, Maps and Memory In Early Modern England examines the way contemporary maps are useful to understanding literary works of the time. Spenser’s Faerie Queene, Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, Jonson’s “To Penshurst,” city comedy, and other genres of literature of the city are examined alongside maps and contemporary documents about these areas. In this literature, maps and mapping conventions are used in the service of memory and memorialization of the places of England and of England’s place in the early modern world.
