Literature map of the world

AKIPRESS.COM - Every country is represented by the most famous or important book from that country. Here is an utterly brilliant literature map of the world, from Reddit user Backforward24.

Obviously, making those distinctions is going to lead to some disagreements. For Russia, War and Peace has been chosen, but it could have easily been several of Dostoevsky’s works.

"The UK has Pride and Prejudice, which is obviously a important book, but we’re sure some people will be saying it should have been Dickens or Shakespeare," says The Independent.

And let’s be honest, Spain should really be represented by Don Quixote, not Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s middlebrow bestseller Shadow of the Wind, The Independent said.

But what makes the map really cool, is when it gets to places like Africa, South America and Asia.
