From the Publisher"This book offers an explanatory overview of ecocentric literary and cultural criticism and serves as an introduction to the concepts, methods, and arguments of ecocriticism."
-Scott Slovic,Isle of Oxford Journals
"In this superb book, Timothy Clark has achieved what the best introductions for students achieve: brief, accurate and readable summaries of the main positions in a field, combined with a series of provocative and stimulating questions to be explored in class. Clark has done this and more - he has written a book that any ecocritic should read, since as well as setting out the central dilemmas with a rare clarity and sharpness, it asks searching questions that challenge some of ecocriticism's most established positions."
-Richard Kerridge, Green Letters
"Far from a pedestrian college textbook, Clark’s Introduction to Literature and the Environment is an erudite survey of ecocriticsm accessible to both scholar and student, as well as a practical tool for demonstrating literature’s representation of and engagement with environmental issues of all kinds … I can think of no better intellectual map of ecocriticism’s present state or future prospects than this book."
