Description

 

This walk, part of the Literary Footprints Festival looks at the London locations that have featured in dystopian and post apocalyptic fiction. London has been destroyed fictionally many times in books films and paintings. The walk will involve readings from some of these works, allowing the walkers to contrast the current surroundings with the imagined world of the author. We will consider the various reasons that writers have felt the need to see London in ruins, looking at works by HG Wells, JG Ballard, Mary Shelley, George Orwell, John Wyndham and others
