Canadian Literary Landmarks, by John Robert Colombo, Willowdale, Ont.: Hounslow Press, 1984
Much like a literary travel guide, a literary map displays various destinations and also provides reading recommendations.
Literary maps are unique creations that link real or imaginary geographic locations to authors and their works. They can be used to identify significant places in the life of an author, to provide a setting for a poetic verse or a backdrop for a plot or the adventures of a literary character in a city, region or country.
