Drawing on the latest debates in ecocritical theory and sustainability studies, Literature as Cultural Ecology: Sustainable Texts outlines a new approach to the reading of literary texts. Hubert Zapf considers the ways in which literature operates as a form of cultural ecology, using language, imagination and critique to challenge and transform cultural narratives of humanity's relationship to nature. In this way, the book demonstrates the important role that literature plays in creating a more sustainable way of life. Applying this approach to works by writers such as Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allen Poe, Herman Melville, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Zakes Mda, and Amitav Ghosh, Literature as Cultural Ecology is an essential contribution to the contemporary environmental humanities.

Ecocriticism hat sich mittlerweile als interdisziplinäre Forschungsperspektive weltweit etabliert. Auch im deutschsprachigen Raum zeichnet sich ein wachsendes Interesse ab, bislang fehlt jedoch eine Einführung, die Lehrende und Studierende mit den verschiedenen Ansätzen und Forschungsschwerpunkten des Ecocriticism vertraut macht. Der Band schließt diese Lücke, indem er in die zentralen theoretischen Perspektiven einführt, die spezifischen Ansätze im deutschen Kontext vorstellt und ein weitgefächertes Spektrum für das ökologische Potenzial von Literatur, Film und Kunst in vergleichender Perspektive eröffnet. Ausgewiesene Vertreterinnen und Vertreter aus Amerikanistik, Germanistik, Geschichte, Kunst- und Kulturwissenschaft geben einen repräsentativen Einblick in die einzelnen Forschungsfelder und die jeweils zentralen Texte.

The Oxford Handbook of Ecocriticism provides a broad survey of the longstanding relationship between literature and the environment. The moment for such an offering is opportune in many respects: multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels; the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is increasingly recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions; and the subject of ecocriticism has reached a kind of critical mass, both within its Anglo-American heartlands and beyond. From its origins in the study of American Nature Writing and British Romanticism, ecocriticism has developed along numerous theoretical, historical, cultural and geographical axes, the most contemporary and exciting of which will be represented in the Handbook. The contributors include eminent founders of the field, including Michael Branch and Richard Kerridge, a number of key 'second-wave' ecocritics, and the best up-and-coming scholars. Topics covered include: Renaissance anxieties about nature; the challenges of representing climate change; the racialization of the environment in the early 20th century; language and the concept of biosemiotics; and the possibilities for environmental humour.

Am beginnenden 21. Jahrhundert hat sich unter dem Stichwort des Ecocriticism eine ökologisch orientierte Betrachtungsweise der Literatur entwickelt, die eine doppelte Produktivität zu entfalten verspricht. Einerseits öffnet sie die Literaturwissenschaft auf einen größeren, transdisziplinären Diskurszusammenhang über die Beziehung von Kultur und Natur, die in den verschiedensten Wissenschaftsdisziplinen von zunehmender Aktualität ist und die in literarischen Texten seit jeher in besonderer Komplexität und Intensität verhandelt wurde. Andererseits gewinnt dieser transdisziplinäre Zugang seine Bedeutung für die Literaturwissenschaft erst dadurch, dass er die Texte nicht einfach unter allgemeinere ökologische Themen und Prinzipien subsumiert, sondern vielmehr gerade die spezifischen, in der kulturellen Evolution herausgebildeten Formen und Funktionen literarischer Textualität in den Blick rückt.

The challenge of rapid climate change is forcing us to rethink traditional attitudes to nature. This book is the first study to chart these changing attitudes in 21st-century British fiction. Climate Crisis and the 21st-Century British Novel examines twelve works that reflect growing cultural awareness of climate crisis and participate in the reshaping of the stories that surround it. Central to this renegotiation are four narratives: environmental collapse, pastoral, urban and polar. Bringing ecocriticism into dialogue with narratology and a new body of contemporary writing, Astrid Bracke explores a wide range of texts, from Zadie Smith's NW through Sarah Hall's The Carhullan Army and David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas to the work of a new generation of novelists such as Melissa Harrison and Ross Raisin. As the book shows, post-millennial fictions provide the imaginative space in which to rethink the stories we tell about ourselves and the natural world in a time of crisis.

"The Routledge Handbook of Religion and Ecology provides the most comprehensive and authoritative overview of the field. Written by a team of leading international experts, the Handbook discusses dynamics of change within religious traditions as well as their roles in responding to global challenges such as climate change, water, conservation, food and population. It explores the interpretations of indigenous traditions regarding modern environmental problems drawing on such concepts as lifeway and indigenous knowledge. This volume uniquely intersects the field of religion and ecology with new directions within the humanities and the sciences. The sections on environmental humanities and environmental sciences explore the history and significance of other key areas and disciplines of environmental studies in which religion and ecology can be fruitfully located as a dialogue partner for environmental solutions"--

Suche nach der Herkunft: Odella, die Hauptfigur des Romans hat es als älteste von drei Töchtern nicht einfach. Schon als Neunjährige muss sie die Spuren der mütterlichen Alkoholsucht vor dem Vater verbergen, als sie fünfzehn ist, verlässt ihre Mutter die Familie und stirbt drei Jahre später in Island. Zum Glück findet sie in Jimmy, dem Jungen aus Mistik Lake nicht nur ihre erste Liebe, sondern einen wahren Freund. Mistik Lake ist auch der Ort, wo ihre Mutter herkommt, und sie als Kinder jeweils den Sommer verbracht haben. Dorthin zieht es sie zurück und sie entdeckt die gutgehüteten Familiengeheimnisse. Der Roman, aufgebaut in Prolog und drei Teilen, erzählt die Geschehnisse jeweils aus der Perspektive von Odella, ihrer Grosstante Gloria und von Jimmy. Dank der Perspektivenwechsel werden die Lesenden in die Familiengeschichte eingeführt und ahnen nach und nach mehr über deren Geheimnisse. Die bildhafte und poetische Sprache vermittelt eine klare Vorstellung über Kanadas Landschaften und damit eng verknüpft das seelische Ringen Odellas. Schade, dass der Schluss zu offensichtlich zu erwarten ist. Ab 13 Jahren, ****, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser.

The Oxford Handbook of William Wordsworth deploys its forty-eight original essays, by an international team of scholar-critics, to present a stimulating account of Wordsworth's life and achievement and to map new directions in criticism. Nineteen essays explore the highlights of a long career systematically, giving special prominence to the lyric Wordsworth of Lyrical Ballads and the Poems in Two Volumes and to the blank verse poet of 'The Recluse'. Most of the other essays return to the poetry while exploring other dimensions of the life and work of the major Romantic poet. The result is a dialogic exploration of many major texts and problems in Wordsworth scholarship. This uniquely comprehensive handbook is structured so as to present, in turn, Wordsworth's life, career, and networks; aspects of the major lyrical and narrative poetry; components of 'The Recluse'; his poetical inheritance and his transformation of poetics; the variety of intellectual influences upon his work, from classical republican thought to modern science; his shaping of modern culture in such fields as gender, landscape, psychology, ethics, politics, religion and ecology; and his 19th- and 20th-century reception-most importantly by poets, but also in modern criticism and scholarship.
