Con Coroneos

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Georges Melies' 1904 motion picture The Impossible Voyage in relation to the space of words and things or the connection between language and geography. It suggests that the film was a satire on the joint-stock enterprise of geography and rational thought in the advance towards universal reason. It contends that this film has also crossed the boundaries of space in modern literature.

Keywords:   The Impossible Voyage, George Melies, space, language, geography, modern literature
