Reviews

"A cultural geography of Hemingway's best-known work, Laura Godfrey's Hemingway's Geographies explores how the human and natural histories of places in his fiction permeate the memories and experiences of his characters and back again. With theoretical savvy, surprising insights drawn from several disciplines, and warm personal touches, Godfrey charts Hemingway's creation of place in the mind of the reader. If Hemingway is the principal poet of place in American literature, Godfrey is his most adept cartographer. A welcome and essential addition to the Hemingway bookshelf." - Susan F. Beegel, Editor Emerita, The Hemingway Review

"Laura Godfrey's book, while illuminating Hemingway's notion of place, becomes an indispensable broader consideration of Hemingway's entire career. This book is a nimble, affectionate, gracefully written investigation into Hemingway's sense of place, the geography that guided his art. Godfrey blends the erudition of a scholar with the infectious enthusiasm of a fan. It's a book to learn from; but better than that, it's a book to enjoy." - Mark Cirino, Associate Professor of English, University of Evansville, USA
