Imaginative Geographies: The Politics and Poetics of Space

(p.23) Chapter One Imaginative Geographies: The Politics and Poetics of Space
Ciaran Carson
Liverpool University Press

This chapter discusses a critical framework and recent paradigms for the study of space and place advanced in the fields of geography and cultural theory that will be used in the analysis of Ciaran Carson's works. It considers the fluid critical formulations for literary geography and suggests that the singularity of Carson's writing rests upon his far-reaching imaginative engagements with ideas of space and place, and particularly urban spatiality in an Irish context. It also mentions that Carson's creative re-imagination of the cultural materials the city provides is exemplified in his poem Belfast.

Keywords:   Ciaran Carson, place and space, literary geography, imaginative engagements, urban spatiality, Belfast
