World Views uncovers a vital, but heretofore neglected, aspect of modernist critique. The metageographies of modernist fiction allow us to see the world on multiple scales, including the national; to map our surroundings based on embodiment and local practices; and to think about the connections between mapping and textuality: the circuitous, twisting, contingent, and ambiguous lines that both extend and limit our purview. * Laura Winkiel, Clio *
