Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the preface to the first volume of "The History of Cartography", Harley and Woodward provide an interesting definition of a geographical map as "graphic representations that facilitate a spatial understanding of things, concepts, conditions, processes, or events in the human world". If we consider how the purpose of the cartographic description has always been the support for the discovery and knowledge of a place, approaching the subject from a literary perspective implies asking ourselves about the growing interest that, in recent times, literary studies have shown towards cartography, such as part of the phenomenon designated since the 1980s with the expression spatial turn and translated into the re-evaluation of the categories of space and spatiality in the context of the humanities.
