Literary geography, pioneered in the first half of the twentieth century, is now a well-established field of research. English novelist and journalist Arnold Bennett is one of many literary artists whose works have been studied by geographers. This article examines Bennett’s writings in order to explore how changing modes and spatial patterns of transport influence landscape, land use and urban morphology. It demonstrates his geographical understanding of the role and influence of transport in regional development and on the landscape, thus emphasizing Bennett’s ability to describe and explain these phenomena using the trained sensibilities of the novelist. Examples are drawn from Bennett’s native Potteries district and from other areas familiar to him, both in England and on the European continent.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
