How to read literature like a professor :19 and 20

Just a couple questions about the selection we read...I don't quite understand how geography can be mostly people when it comes to poetry and fiction? Maybe I'm just not thinking outside the box...is anyone confused on this one as well?

"Geography can also define or even develop character." I agree with this quote, found on page 167 in the book, How to Read Literature Like A Professor. I know for sure, if I would have grown in the city, I would definately not be the person I am today. Because I do live in the country, I have been, as some would say "sheltered" from the real world. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but living in New York City for instance, would have definately defined or developed my character in a totally different way.
