Explore French Literary History Through New Interactive Map

By Publishing Perspectives

Visiting France anytime soon? You might want to check out http://www.cartographie-litteraire.net/ — the site offers a crowdsourced interactive map of France that will lead you to choice quotations from a coterie of historical writers. You can zoom in on Paris, for example and read Aragon on Montmartre or Cocteau on La cité Monthiers. Further afield you’ll find Flaubert on Saint-Malo and F. Scott Fitzgerald on the Riviera.

The map is still developing, but already has hundreds of quotations and keyed to a Google Map, making it simple and easy to explore.

    I love this. Only wish there was a way to select viewing in English. Is there something similar for NYC?
