This fascinating study explores how Renaissance-era maps fascinated people with their beauty and precision yet they also unnerved readers and writers. The volume shows how late sixteenth- and seventeenth-century poets channelled the anxieties provoked by maps and mapping, creating a new way of thinking about how literature represents space.
