520    "An analysis of the depiction of Australia's landscape in 
       its films and literature. Imagined Landscapes teams 
       geocritical analysis with digital visualization techniques
       to map and interrogate films, novels, and plays in which 
       space and place figure prominently. Drawing upon A 
       Cultural Atlas of Australia, a database-driven interactive
       digital map that can be used to identify patterns of 
       representation in Australia's cultural landscape, the book
       presents an integrated perspective on the translation of 
       space across narrative forms and pioneers new ways of 
       seeing and understanding landscape. It offers fresh 
       insights on cultural topography and spatial history by 
       examining the technical and conceptual challenges of 
       georeferencing fictional and fictionalized places in 
       narratives. Among the items discussed are Wake in Fright ,
       a novel by Kenneth Cook, adapted iconically to the screen 
       and recently onto the stage; the Australian North as a 
       mythic space; spatial and temporal narrative shifts in 
       retellings of the story of Alexander Pearce, a convict who
       gained notoriety for resorting to cannibalism after 
       escaping from a remote Tasmanian penal colony; travel 
       narratives and road movies set in Western Australia; and 
       the challenges and spatial politics of mapping spaces for 
       which there are no coordinates. "It will likely be the 
       indispensable touchstone for any future work in these 
       areas with respect to Australian cultural studies." -- 
       Robert T. Tally, Texas State University "Definitely 
       original in its approach, since it combines a conceptual 
       approach with a more applied one. The book is a serious 
       contribution to the field of mapping spatial narratives 
       and to a better understanding of the production and 
       spatial structure of fictional places." -- S bastien 
       Caquard, Concordia University"--|cProvided by Freading.
