The Environmental Imagination

PDF EBook by Lawrence Buell

EBook Description

With the environmental crisis comes a crisis of the imagination, a need to find new ways to understand nature and humanity's relation to it. The Environmental Imagination PDF EBook This is the challenge Lawrence Buell takes up in The Environmental Imagination. With Thoreau's Walden as a touchstone, Buell gives us an account of environmental perception, the place of nature in the history of Western thought, and the consequences for literary scholarship of attempting to imagine a more ecocentric way of being. In doing so, he provides an understanding of Thoreau's achievement and, at the same time, a rethinking of our literary and cultural reflections on nature. Like this book?
