The Discworld is a fantasy land in the Tolkien and Brothers Grimm mold, complete with witches, wizards, dragons, trolls, and dwarfs; however, over time it has largely evolved into its own distinct culture, as its denizens find more sophisticated ways to outgrow their narrative conventions.
Directions within the Discworld are not given as North, South, East and West, but rather as directions relating to the disc itself: Hubward (towards the centre), Rimward (away from the centre) and to a lesser extent, turnwise and widdershins (relation to the direction of the disc's spin).
Discworld civilization, which can broadly be defined as those countries that have invented the fork as well as the knife, is found around the Circle Sea's historic coasts.

 The Discworld Homework Files: Mort
Mort now acts authentically in the face of an ever encroaching interface to the dead reality to try to save Princess Keli by making sure that the reality in which she is alive wins out over the reality in which she is dead.
In a perfect example of how the book uses metaphors to illustrate existential issues, Mort and Ysabell must ride across the world to perform that night's duty against a deadline which is almost impossible to meet, much as our own sense of finiteness and death imposes a deadline which we must struggle against.
The resulting fight between Death and Mort for Princess Keli's life can be seen as reflecting Mort's wish to snatch life from the jaws of inexorable death; he is fighting an anthropomorphic personification of that which is hurting him most through taking away his love.
