Novelists in their autobiographical and imaginative writings illuminate various aspects of the mutual interaction between man and environment. Early or home place, with its formative and restorative qualities, has at the same time an ambiguity such that it exists in dialectical relationship to subsequent place. In the symbiotic relationship between man and environment, place may be considered as people, and people as place. Time is crucial to the experience of place.
