Abstract

In a dozen essays, the A. provides a series of personal reflections on the complex connections between seeing, imagining and representing the world geographically. Ranging from the 16th century to the present day, the essays cover geographical discovery and the Renaissance landscape ; urban cartography and utopian visions ; ideas of landscape and the shaping of America ; wilderness and masculinity ; conceptions of the Pacific, and the imaginative grip of the Equator. They draw on pictorial images, including maps, sketches, paintings and photographs, to explore and elaborate upon the many ways in which the vast and varied earth, and at times the heavens beyond, have been imagined and represented as a place of human habitation. - (HC)
