Description - Granta 102: the New Nature Writing by Jason Cowley
As long as people have been writing, they have been writing about nature. But nature - as we know it - is changing. Economic migration, overpopulation and - most significantly - climate change are shaping the natural world into something unfamiliar. Instead of providing a respite from the urban landscape, the natural world now reflects our mistakes; our abuse; our politics. As our conception and experience of nature changes, so too does the way we write about it.Granta 102 will be a seminal collection, addressing lost worlds, vanishing species, the race for control of the Arctic and the popularisation of man-made art intended to replicate the aesthetic experiences we once found in the wild. Contributors include Robert Macfarlane, Jonathan Raban, Nadine Gordimer and Isabel Hilton.
