Geography and Literature

There are many different aspects of a story that people would rather prefer which include, setting, characters, and many others. Once reading Jenna Miller’s blog entry I had forgotten about my popular fiction class. During my first semester at SHU, I took a course entitled popular fiction along with many other students of our current class. After reading Foster’s chapters, I had forgotten much geography matters to people. During that class last semester, many students had conflicts dealing with the setting. Most students would prefer to have a desert setting placed within the city. We had to read ten novels throughout the term and there were a variety of genres. Almost every book that we read, the term geography played a VAST role in whether a student liked or disliked a novel. Overall, the experience with my popular fiction class and reading Foster’s chapters has re-told me that geography has many roles.
