Environmental Imagination by Lawrence Buell
Book DescriptionWith the environmental crisis comes a crisis of the imagination, a need to find new ways to understand nature and humanity's relation to it. This is the challenge Lawrence Buell takes up in "The Environmental Imagination". With Thoreau's "Walden" as a touchstone, Buell gives us an account of environmental perception, the place of nature in the history of Western thought, and the consequences for literary scholarship of attempting to imagine a more "ecocentric" way of being. In doing so, he provides an understanding of Thoreau's achievement and, at the same time, a rethinking of our literary and cultural reflections on nature.

Dream of the Great American Novel, Paperback (May 2016)
The first book in many years to take in the full sweep of national fiction, The Dream of the Great American Novel explains why this supposedly antiquated idea continues to thrive. It shows that four G.A.N. "scripts" are keys to the dynamics of American literature and identity--and to the myth of a nation perpetually under construction.
Emerson and Neo-Confucianism, Hardback (February 2014)
A comparative investigation of Emerson's Transcendental thought and Zhu Xi's Neo-Confucianism, this book shows how both thinkers traced the human morality to the same source in the ultimately moral nature of the universe and developed theories of the interrelation of universal law and the human mind.
Shades of the Planet, Paperback (March 2007)View all books by Lawrence Buell
In a globalizing age, studying American literature in isolation from the rest of the world seems less and less justified. But is the conceptual box of the nation dispensable? And what would American literature look like without it? This book takes up this debate.
