Green Studies Reader: From Romanticism to Ecocriticism / Edition 1

The Green Studies Reader is a fantastically comprehensive selection of critical texts which address the connection between ecology, culture and literature. It offers a complete guide to the growing area of 'ecocriticism' and a wealth of material on green issues from the romantic period to the present. Some important aspects that are covered in depth are romantic ecology and its legacy, Nature/Culture/Gender, and environmental literary history. Included in this collection are extracts from today's leading ecocritics and figures from the past who pioneered a green approach to literature and culture. As a whole the Reader encourages a reassessment of the whole development of criticism and will offer readers a radical prospect for its future.
