Bioregional Biography and the Geography of Affect

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In [Alice Oswald's] Sleepwalk on the Severn (2009), identity—individual and communal—is aligned to poetic voice, which in itself is impressionable and unfixed, subject to specific situations in which the text and space are imbricated, one with the other. This article argues that environmentally emplaced affect can be located through an attention to Oswald’s concrete, spatialised ecopoetic ‘registers’ (voices) and an undulating, accumulative literary score that underpin Sleepwalk’s geographic imaginary.
