Literary Map of England


A literary map of Britain. (Click to expand to full size.) Though I honestly don't know why they put Lewis in Ireland (I know he was born there, but!), considering he did most of his writing from Oxford, and besides there are tons of marvelous Irish poets to be listed. And there is a blank spot under Tolkien, so there'd be room. Otherwise, I think this is very clever--especially the double listing of the Eliots: George and T. S. Ps. Can you find Bede?
