Unlike the main twelve novels mapped on this site, which were comprehensively geoparsed, each novel in this "library" map was allocated a single geolocation. This was chosen on the basis of one "primary" location in which the novel is set. This was not a standardised process; we made interpretive judgements depending on each novel’s imaginative depiction of its setting. Where novels did not name, renamed, or "invented" places, we allocated approximate "real" locations based on the depictions therein. As such, the map is not an incontestable cartography of English-language fiction in Wales. Rather, it is presented as a broad-brush impression of the geographical sweep of fiction set in Wales.

Please contact the Literary Atlas to tell us about novels that should be added to the database, or to tell us where you think a primary location is wrong.
