Beyond Nature Writing: Expanding the Boundaries of Ecocriticism

Capa
Karla Armbruster, Kathleen R. Wallace
University of Virginia Press, 2001 - 372 páginas

Ecocriticism, a field of study that has expanded dramatically over the past decade, has nevertheless remained—until recently—closely focused on critical analyses of nature writing and literature of wilderness. Karla Armbruster and Kathleen R. Wallace push well beyond that established framework with this groundbreaking collection of essays by respected ecocritics and scholars from the literary and environmental arenas. Together, their work signals a new direction in the field and offers refreshingly original insights into a broad spectrum of texts.
