Publisher Comments:

This volume offers one of the first introductory guides to the emergent field of literary ecological criticism. With an accessible and animated approach to the subject, Greg Garrard presents the reader with the theoretical background of the genre and explores the practice of ecocriticism in key areas of cultural production. Topics covered include: *Wilderness *Apocalypse *Dwelling *Animals *Earth. Featuring a comprehensive glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading, "ecocriticism" is the ideal handbook for all students new to the burgeoning disciplines of literature and environment studies, ecology and green studies.

Synopsis:

Inspired by a range of ecological movements, ecocriticism explores the ways in which we imagine and portray the relationship between humans and the environment in all areas of cultural production, from Wordsworth and Thoreau to Disney and BBC nature documentaries. Greg Garrard's animated and accessible volume traces the development of the movement and explores the concepts which have most occupied ecocritics, including:

* pollution

* wilderness

* apocalypse

* dwelling

* animals

* earth.

Featuring an invaluable glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading, this is the first student-friendly introduction to one of the newest and most exciting trends in literary and cultural studies.
