Geographical immediations: locating The English Patient
Richard Cavell pages -


Cavell examines Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, and its representation of the relationship between space and text; he is particularly interested in the development of a hegemony of electronic mediation in this relationship as suggested by Ondaatje’s text. The article also examines the role of the language of space in literary and cultural studies, via the representation of spatial collisions in The English Patient. Finally, Cavell explores the problematic nature of displaced surfaces in the last part of the novel.
