ABSTRACT

Literary geography in geography research has been a major research area for a long time and its scope was extended due mainly to the rise and development of the so-called ‘new’ cultural geography perspective, as well as the long-lasting influence of the humanistic tradition. Landscape comprises a main analytical theme in the new cultural geography, and it can also be read and interpreted through an in-depth analysis of literary works. On this Basis, the purpose of this study is to attempt to read literary landscapes through the lens of contextual understanding, a landscape interpretation method Wylie’s approach classified landscape as veil, text, and gaze. For this, this study selects My Sweet City written by Yi-hyun Jeong that depicts the lives of women in contemporary metropolis. This study is to make a contextual understanding about four types of landscapes including marriage, class, private history, consumption, for spatiality of literary work. We expect the extension of the research width of literary geography for new cultural geography approach.
