Literary Map of the British Isles

This literary map of the British Isles appealed to my inner bookworm. I was pleased by how many of these authors I've read, both poets and novelists, though what with being an English major and all, I probably shouldn't be surprised. What a strong literary tradition--from the raunchy poems of Chaucer in the Middle Ages, the marriage plots of the Brontës and Austen in the Victorian Era, to the modernism of Virginia Woolf.


  1. I've read Jane Austen... Not sure if that is who you're talking about as far as Austen goes (if not, sorry!). That is a nice piece of art up there, though!

    1. thanks, that's the one! free editions of her complete works are available online, it's great!
