The authors discuss the creation of literary places, based on people’s perceptions of a locality arising from their relations to particular writers and their texts. The analysis is grounded on two case studies: Ogulin in Croatia, which is the birthplace of Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić, a renowned writer of fairytales, and Sel in Norway, the place where Sigrid Undset’s heroine of the historical novel Kristin Lavransdaughter spent her youth. Both cases rely on materializing the writers’ fictional universes within specific localities. Although they emerge in different contexts, these literary places exhibit common determinants that provide additional insight in the placemaking process.
