It is written from a material space, through a textualized space and towards a new readerly space. Framing interpretations in such a manner opens doorways to potentially liberating and enriching understandings of cultural geography and regional/national identity – in this case, a rather majestic and remote moorland Englishness, that is “high, and wide and flat” or desires to be, or desires to be seen to be, or similar.
