Londen literair: een reis door de literatuur van een stad by Anna Quindlen, Gert Jan de Vries

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Londen literair: een reis door de literatuur van een stad Anna Quindlen first visited London from a chair in her suburban Philadelphia home in one of her beloved childhood mystery novels She has been back to London countless times since through the pages of books and in person and now in Imagined London she takes her own readers on a tour of this greatest of literary cities .

While New York Paris and Dublin are also vividly portrayed in fiction it is London Quindlen argues that has always been the star both because of the primacy of English literature and the specificity of city descriptions She bases her view of the city on her own detailed literary map tracking the footsteps of her favorite characters the places where Evelyn Waugh s bright young things danced until dawn or where Lydia Bennett eloped with the dastardly Wickham .

In i Imagined London i Quindlen walks through the city moving within blocks from the great books of the th century to the detective novels of the th to the new modernist tradition of the st With wit and charm Imagined London gives this splendid city its full due in the landscape of the literary imagination
