Show Summary Details


This chapter studies various spaces, from the mid-west and Chicago, to the north-eastern states of America. It first examines the spaces of The Music of Chance, where a mansion in rural Pennsylvania is used as the setting of a ritualistic and bizarre poker game that rids the nomadic protagonists of their freedom. This chapter also shows the way travel and movement can consist of a series of situated and relational selves and describes film, dreams and flight as utopian spaces.

Keywords: spaces; freedom; travel; movement; situated selves; relational selves; film; dreams; flight; utopian spaces
