Mapping Literary Spaces: Memory, Place, Locality Wojciech Kalaga Jacek Mydla Recently space has moved to the forefront of interdisciplinarily conceived humanities After centuries of explorations of outer space, the eye of the scholar has fixed back on the mundane parameters of human existence, on the space that lies before the naked eye, at our fingertips, in the too too solid vicinity With such groundbreaking ideas to lead the way as Heidegger sRecently space has moved to the forefront of interdisciplinarily conceived humanities After centuries of explorations of outer space, the eye of the scholar has fixed back on the mundane parameters of human existence, on the space that lies before the naked eye, at our fingertips, in the too too solid vicinity With such groundbreaking ideas to lead the way as Heidegger s conception of being in the world, scholars have acquired a new boldness, which alone is needed to confront the nearest, the inner worldly, rather than the Cartesian abstract extension But then they soon realized that explorations of the close at hand has been conducted for ages, and have found their way into literary works This realization has in turn led to another one, namely that the inner worldly space is soaked with signification that rather than being an unknown and hostile terrain, it lies there, soaked with identities personal, national, ethnic and with living memory thus turning those literary works which have taken up the task of charting this territory, into living records of the lived time and space, of the lived chronotope It is studies of such abstract and brief chronicles of the time that we offer the Readers for their kind perusal.This volume is a post conference collection of essays, and as such brings a yield of an effort of English language scholars in, chiefly, Poland s literary departments determined mentally to wrestle with the many problems of human spaces as they have been wrought into the fine tissue of literary texts.Due to the crisscrossing and overlapping thematic concerns and theoretical positions, we have decided not to use the usual division of a collection of essays into problem sections On the other hand, it has seemed advisable to give suggestions to the Readers as to what problems the individual texts have tackled Hence, steering clear of both the Scylla of pigeonholing and the Charybdis of indeterminacy, we have decided to complement the author and title list of contents with a descriptive topical one, hoping that the bearings given will enable the Readers to come up with an itinerary of their own for their voyage across the pages of this volume Hoping, further, that this voyage will not turn into sea sick crossing and begging pardon with the Authors for taking these liberties with their names, which was only done for the joint sakes of utility and perspicacity, we bid this volume go forth into the world and prosper.Wojciech Kalaga, Jacek MydlaList of contents Problem List of Contents 5Preface Wojciech Kalaga, Jacek Mydla 9Ewelina Ba ka Sherman Alexie s Report from American Indian UrbaNation 11Teresa Bru Tourist in His Own Country Louis MacNeice and Ireland 21Sonia Front Written on the body is a secret code Body as Palimpsest in Jeanette Winterson 32Dorota Guzowska People on the Move the Experience of Travelling in Seventeenth Century England 44Magdalena Hebda Rootedness and Appropriation of Space in Barbara Kingsolver s Prodigal Summer 62Aleksandra Kania Trapped by the Ghost of a Typewriter David Basckin s The Rosined Areola of Mrs Mtetwa by Bucks Campbell 71Bo ena Kuca a Mapping the Limits of Civilisation J.M Coetzee s Waiting for the Barbarians 82Ma gorzata Nitka Rust and must and cobwebs Of Accumulation and Circulation in Dickens s Bleak House 91Katarzyna Nowak In the Name of the Father Identity, Disruption, Difference A Study of Jhumpa Lahiri s The Namesake 106Anna Pochmara Defying Time, Celebrating Space The Construction of Male Bonds in the Leatherstocking Tales by James Feni Cooper 117Anna Popiel I saw new Worlds beneath the Water ly The Gnostic Idea of Spiritual Displacement in the Poetry of Thomas Traherne 125Liza Potvin Remembering It in Our Bones Marie Clements Burning Vision 136Ma gorzata Rutkowska American history is parking lots Place and Memory in Contemporary American Travel Writing 143Magdalena S onka Images of the Hermetic Room in the Novels of Paul Auster 153Katarzyna Smyczy ska A City Girl at Heart Constructions of Gendered Space in Chick Lit Fictions 162George Volceanov Mapping Shakespeare s Catholicism Spatial Clues Indicating the Bard s True Faith 176Ryszard W Wolny In Search of Emptiness A Voyage into the Heart of Terra Nullius in Patrick White s Voss 189.
