Reviews

"A powerfully conceived, intelligently constructed collection of essays. I can imagine few critical anthologies that will have such a wide appeal. It comes at just the right moment and will find a substantial and appreciative audience."--John Elder "If you are wondering what ecocriticism is, how it has evolved, why it is important to literary studies, or how to do it, you must read this book. . . . Whether you are a teacher, scholar, theorist, reader, explorer, or enthusiast of literature and nature, you will be stimulated and challenged by the journey these essays lead you on."--"ISLE" A major step toward organizing the field and bringing literary studies into closer contact with what is generally recognized as a contemporary crisis. . . . A tremendous accomplishment.--Simon Estok "Canadian Review of Comparative Literature " Provides the basis for any future discussion of 'ecocriticism.' It is a milestone in the emergence of the discipline.--David Teague "Western American Literature " Informative and insightful . . . Because the essays in this text are accessible yet provocative, it not only serves as a sourcebook for ecocritics and those reading about literature, but would also function well as a text in a wide range of undergraduate or graduate classrooms.--Marta Hess "South Atlantic Review " If you are wondering what ecocriticism is, how it has evolved, why it is important to literary studies, or how to do it, you must read this book. . . . Whether you are a teacher, scholar, theorist, reader, explorer, or enthusiast of literature and nature, you will be stimulated and challenged by the journey these essays lead you on. --ISLE A powerfully conceived, intelligently constructed collection of essays.
