"Advanced undergraduates and graduate students would do well to study it... [A] minor miracle of synthesis and exposition." - ISLE

"Advanced undergraduates and graduate students would do well to study it... [A] minor miracle of synthesis and exposition." - ISLE


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 traces the development of the movement and explores the concepts which have most occupied ecocritics, including: pollution wilderness apocalypse dwelling animals the earth. With a glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading, this is an invaluable introduction to one of the most exciting recent developments in literary and cultural studies. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Handy Guide to to the Field of Ecocriticism 6. Juni 2013
Von ARP - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
To write a book that claims to give an account of a field and its terminology is inevitably to expose oneself to criticism. Why does Garrard write about this and not that? Does this particular argument really deserve the airtime it gets? I imagine we could go on like this forever, because the boundaries of ecocriticism are often contested, and some people who could be said to do ecocriticism don't call themselves ecocritics. There were some things about this book that I wish were different based on my own particular viewpoints.

But to evaluate this book fairly we have to evaluate it sympathetically, and to do that it is worth reminding ourselves of what this book is. Garrard's book should be seen as a kind of gateway to ecocriticism, and it is a very good one. Garrard provides thorough glosses of the concepts and problems that drive ecocriticism, sketches out the various positions that might fall under the ecocriticism label, and gives a detailed account of the thought that forms ecocriticism's theoretical underpinnings.

I have the second edition, which covers the major developments in the field over the course of the 2000s, and so Garrard's book is more useful for a scholar finding his or her way into the field than, say, The Ecocriticism Reader: Landmarks in Literary Ecology which, given that its role was to get a scholarly conversation started, is now somewhat dated.

Because this book is mostly about giving a gloss to a body of scholarship, it is not eminently citable if one is actually doing research. I would also only make it optional in a classroom, as a seminar discussion would be better spent on an actual literary or theoretical text than a gloss. The literary analyses model point to ways of doing ecocritical inquiry into different genres, but they can also be hard to evaluate and may be of little interest if you don't know the texts. My biggest criticism is that some of the analyses remain underdeveloped in this new edition, and I wish that there were more of a dissection of some ecocritical commonplaces that we really ought to have dispensed with by now..

What is most valuable about this book is that it points the way to a genuinely critical mode of ecocriticism, as opposed to art appreciation or commentary, or worse, what has been called "the praise song school of ecocriticism." Appreciation and commentary are a necessary phase of starting a conversation, but doing that kind of scholarship forever is rather pointless. If you are a beginner broaching the field of ecocriticism, you can save yourself some time by starting with this book. And if you are more familiar with the territory, this book is still worth having in reach, if only because it is useful in pointing out possible directions through the kinds of conceptual problems one bumps into when undertaking ecocritical scholarship, however one wishes to define that term.

This book can't be everything to everybody interested in ecocriticism, but that's probably a good thing for ecocriticism. The fact that ecocriticism can't be reduced to a two hundred page volume is surely indicative that there is enough heterogeneity to sustain it as a viable mode of critical inquiry.

Have not done a thorough reading but coming after Lawrence Buell's text, Environmental Imaginatuin, this one is more academic with heavy theoretical language and more focused on Canada.

Von Grimm Prospects - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This was a required text for a class I am taking on "The Ecological Chaucer," and at first I was very skeptical. I'm not claiming to be any type of expert, but the ideas in this book are engaging and timely for our Green-movement-obsessed generation. The application of this critique to other texts, especially classical texts, has been very informative and allows a new engagement with authors about whom much is already written.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great resource 12. Dezember 2007
Von Robert E. Livingston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the best New Critical Idiom titles: well-organized, clearly written, balanced and thoughtful, both comprehensive and comprehensible. If you need an introduction to the field of ecocriticism, this is the best place to start.

Contrary to what the previous reviewer claims, the book has well-informed discussions of both Christianity (in a chapter on Apocalypse, where he contrasts millenialist visions of the end of the world with Augustine's "comic" (i.e. unpredictable) eschatology) and of various eco-feminist and deep-ecological ideas of the Great Mother. Garrard is a generous reader, but does not hesitate to point out excesses and contradictions. His distinction between "problems in ecology" (which call for scientific analysis) and "ecological problems" (requiring social and cultural understanding) is worth the price of the book.
