Review of Writing Britain: from Wastelands to Wonderlands exhibition

Interesting post from Diane Hale on the current British Library exhibition - Writing Britain: Wastelands to Wonderland; looks well worth a visit:

From William Blake to the 21st-century suburban hinterlands of J G Ballard, Writing Britain examines how the landscapes of Britain permeate great literary works. It will allow visitors to read between the lines of great works of English literature, discovering the secrets and stories surrounding the works’ creation, shedding new light on how they speak to the country today.
