The literary map of the world: the most representative novels in each country

Fonte PENSAR COMTEMPORANEO

Anyone who likes to read knows that they can travel even without moving an inch. A literary map of the most representative novels of each country and people can help us wander between nations and cultures that are very distant us, discovering the best they have to offer. Each country a book. Each state is a masterpiece of literature.

Among the pages of our favorite books we have the opportunity to travel every to breathe the charm of distant lands, to appreciate cultures very different ours and thus broaden our horizons.

To help us in the task of finding the most representative book, nation by nation, there is an original literary map prepared by Backforward24, the pseudonym of a user who became famous for his work in which he synthesizes those which, according to him, are the main novels of all countries.

In the planisphere he created, in fact, each country is represented by a particular history, written by an author that nation.

The novels on the map

It is difficult to list them all but, in general, we can say that the choice of Backforward24 was not limited to the great classics, but gave the merit of representing the country itself also to contemporary novels.

Russia: Tolstoy's war and peace

France: The miserable Victor Hugo

Spain: Carlos Ruiz Zafón's Shadow of the Wind

England: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

Ireland: Ulysses Joyce

Sweden: Men who hate women by Stieg Larsson

United States: The Darkness Beyond the Hedge by Harper Lee

India: The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

Brazil: Don Casmurro de Machado de Assis

Argentina: The Ernesto Tunnel on Saturday

Japan: Haruki Murakami's String Bird Chronicle

Canada: Lucy Maud Montgomery's red-haired Anna

Italy: Elena Ferrante's brilliant friend

Of course, it is a personal interpretation of which is the most representative work and, therefore, it is not surprising that the map also received some criticism those who would have preferred to include one novel instead of another. For example, there are those who disagree with Tolstoy's inclusion of War and Peace for Russia, because perhaps he preferred some of Dostoevsky's works. The choice to represent Spain with a contemporary novel by Carlos Luis Zafon instead of the more classic Don Quixote de Cervantes was also widely criticized.

In fact, the venture was difficult and probably every country has more than one novel that could best represent it and that deserves to become a symbol of its own land.
