ABSTRACT
The article explores the spatial allegories of the reading experience in the novels "House of Leaves," by Mark Z. Danielewski and "The Adventures of Master F. J.," by George Gascoigne. The authors explain that the central theme of the two books, which focus on the question of how people read, is addressed through the literacy of the characters. According to the article, the sense of continuity between the real world and the world of poesy was explored by Danielewski and Gascoigne as they presented allegories of reading through their texts.
