The Pilgrim's Progress

The major map for Pilgrim’s Progress immediately displays its complex paratextual nature as three texts in one.  For the secondary maps of Pilgrim’s Progress the gloss is visualised as a separate map and the base text is mapped over the referential layer of an eighteenth-century strip map and a spiral map version from 1850. This illustrates the way in which our chronotopic maps can be referential to the real if needed, but also to other earlier forms of literary visualisation.
