Summary "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. It is inspired by, but also critical of, modern environmental movements. Greg Garrard's volume traces the development of the movement and explores the concepts that have most occupied ecocritics."--BOOK JACKET
