Summary
"This Companion breaks new ground in our knowledge and understanding of the diverse relationships between literature, architecture, and the city, which together form a field of interdisciplinary research that is one of the most innovative and exciting to have emerged in recent years. Bringing together a wide variety of contributors, not only writers, architectural and literary scholars, and social scientists, but graphic novelists and artists, the book offers contemporary essays on the subject, resulting in the definitive and comprehensive guide to the field. The book is structured into three sections: Literature as Modern Urban History, Narrative Strategies, and Language and Form. Including over 70 black and white illustrations, it opens up a creative dialogue between image and text and explores how visual and textual narratives can be creatively combined. This text is a must read for academics and students who have an interest in multidisciplinary research across architecture, literature and cities"--
