Description - The Green Studies Reader by Laurence Coupe

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. The most important aspects of this field are covered in depth: Romantic ecology and its legacy The earth, memory and the critique of modernity Nature/culture/gender Ecocritical principles Environmental literary history The nature of the text. 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. The book includes extracts from: William Wordsworth, Henry David Thoreau, William Morris, Virginia Woolf, D. H. Lawrence, Theodor W. Adorno, Martin Heidegger, Raymond Williams, Theodore Roszak, Claude Levi-Strauss, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Jonathan Bate, Kate Soper, Terry Gifford, Louise Westling, Richard Kerridge , and Jhan Hoc
