A literary map of England

I adore this! Besides inspiring a wish to travel the length and breadth of England, it also makes me want to reread some of my longtime favorites. My only objection is that poor Jane Austen looks a little demented, and Charles Dickens seems to be gazing at her in concern.

    Yes, charming at first, but there are omissions: the three Bronte sisters are reduced to one – just Wuthering Heights (Emily), so no Charlotte or Anne
    Did you know Mary Shelley wrote much of FRANKENSTEIN in Bath? From September 1816 to February 1817 – far longer than she spent in the much publicised trip to Geneva. FRANKENSTEIN IN BATH is a fascinating and virtually forgotten story – and our award winning walking tour tells it where it happened. To 30 September 2017.

      Yes, as a big fan of the Brontes, I’d love to have seen all three of the sisters included!

      And I didn’t know that about Mary Shelley! How fascinating.
